balancing girl.

I don’t want to ask
Or maybe
I ask too much
Like those times
I tell you
I wish you could
Read my mind
So I never
Have to ask again
For anything
But that is crazy
I just want
To be saved
And maybe
I should be asking
A higher power
But to me
That is you
Or maybe


This poem was inspired by the following quote (yes, really!):
Homer Simpson: I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me Superman.


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Maybe that picture will inspire a poem called “a balanced life”? Take the face outline on the left, add that in, and there’s a whole lot more to inspire!

    How did she get there?
    No-body knows.
    Has anyone missed her?
    Only the crows!

    Haha. I love that Homer Simpson inspired you. My Grandpa’s middle name was Homer, he hated it, especially when the Simpsons came out!
