What is sweeter than a pair of puppies? Meet Lennon “Lenny” and McCartney “Micky”! They are my 6 week old babies. Born to the same mom (a Chihuahua)— one has a Jack Russel father and the other a Yorkie father (look up how that happens, lol!). They are the lights of my days.

Don’t criticize me and my choices
I’m just so tired of all the voices
Inside my head they swirl, turn
For silence I constantly yearn
Still louder until I’ve drowned
These voices in my head pound
When finally I get in a word
They make me feel so absurd
Force me to question each move
Anxious for others to approve
But no matter which way I go
I am always faced with a blow
Self doubt, is my worst enemy
From [it] I need to flee
So into myself I’ll go, retreat
Maybe one day this won’t repeat
Life has so much to teach me still, it bends me and tries to break my will
Takes me up just to drop me low, I never know which to way to go
Struggling daily just to cope, feeling like I have so little hope
However long I try to be free, depression always seems stronger than me
Ruining friendships I hold dear and the love I want to be so near
In the end I’ll likely be alone, for many things I must atone
I hate how vulnerable I feel with you and hate these damn emotions too
Always a wreck and I’m never in control, life is taking such a toll
From my mouth there’s no sound as I crumble to the ground
Don’t know how to live but cannot die, and you are the only reason why
I get so caught up in my head- Wondering, am I better off as dead?
Yet every day that I’m with you, is so much better as us two©
Here in your arms, I am safe from what harms
Tasting your lips, my sweet nectar drips
Your touch on my skin, leaves me free within
As I feel you in me, you’re all I can see
Looked deep in your eyes, this love intensifies
Forever here it will be you and me©
What did you expect of me? You let me go and set me free
I wouldn’t fly or spread my wings? I wouldn’t do new things?
Like a dog that runs away, doesn’t heed when you say stay
Because a little child I’m not, doesn’t listen to you on the spot
So don’t ignore the change you see, I’m not who I use to be
I make new choices for myself, no one can put me on a shelf
Took control of who I am, and now I don’t give one damn
What do you expect of me? Well, no more, because I’m free©
A simple gesture, a hand on mine, skin to skin
Touches me deeper than one could imagine
Never realized how foreign it could feel
Until you reached in and warmed me
Were the gods looking down on this moment?
Did they see my brokeness and yours too?
Two lost souls destined to be haunted?
No, our pasts do not taint us here!
So, can there be something so true?
As a second chance come along
If I am to believe this, and I do
Then this is where I belong
Here I ascend into you©
Released my soul, I set it free, but it keeps coming back to me
I told it lies, called it names, but says it loves me all the same
So now I can’t feel a thing, but also no joy does anything bring
Emptied of all the bitter pain, but then nothing does remain©
