The Ones Who Got Me Here


Talking with my much better, definitely better looking, half today…  (Shameless plug: Check out how beautiful she is by clicking here!).  She once again brought my thoughts around, as she effortlessly and gracefully does, to being thankful.  My list, is honestly, endless.  Look at that… Another thing to be thankful about.

A dear friend of mine recently posted something speaking about happiness being a choice.  A quote by Ralph Marston – “Happiness is a choice, not a result.  Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy.  No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy.  Your happiness will not come to you.  It can only come from you.”  (Thanks Penny for sharing that!).

Somewhere along my path the last few years I lost sight of this simple truth.  I guess this is where some would say I had something to learn; a lesson to go through, or even in some cases, I’ll admit, I was the lesson for someone else.

Where I am today though, is thankful.  I’ll just leave it at that.


The ones that I drank all those beers with
Made it through those high school years with
All those girls I loved who broke my heart
All those back roads I drove ’round on
That church pew that I got found on
That college town where I first got my start
The ones that said I’d never make it
The ones that said there’s your chance, go take it
Took all of you for me to get this far
Jobs along the way that paid me
People who dug deep to raise me
Made me who I am, you know who you are
All the haters, all the lovers
All the friends that are more like brothers
All the people I ain’t seen in too many years
All the faces in the bleachers
Never gave up on me teachers
Yeah this one’s for the ones who got me here

The Best Me

I’ve traveled a lot of ground.
Some highways.  Some dirt roads.
Some back alleys.  Some pristine streets.

They all went somewhere.  Led somewhere.
Sometimes there were detours.
Or an exit.  Maybe my GPS wasn’t updated.

It’s amazing what you realize though…
When you’re out of gas.
Your battery is dead.

Life led you right to where you’re supposed to be.

I came to life when I first kissed you
The best me has his arms around you
You make me better than I was before
Thank God I’m yours
The worst me is just a long gone memory
You put a new heartbeat inside of me
You make me better than I was before
Thank God I’m yours

Skin

He told her to be dressed and ready in five minutes.  He had laid out the exact set of lingerie he wanted to see on her, and instructions on specific preparations he expected to see.  They both knew he enjoyed the sick reality of setting her up to be late, and she craved his reality.

She walked into the room with her head down, afraid to look in his eyes.  She wasn’t afraid because she feared him, or her pending punishment, but because the very room they were in together may burst into flames.

Standing there, looking at her, his breathing had already changed but there was no way in hell he’d let on.  His breathing was a short and quick cadence, turning that feeling of wanting to go weak in the knees into a hardened jawline; gritting his teeth with his passion.  Sliding the tails of the whip off from around his neck, he took slow steps towards her, stroking the tails in his other hand…

Walking around… Admiring her body…. Past her left arm…. Around her backside…. Taking his time…. His eyes feasting on every beautiful and feminine curve.  Brushing past her right arm, their skin coming in contact…. He heard her inhale sharply.  He dragged the cat-o-nine tips up her back slowly…. then up and over her right shoulder as he walked around to face her, letting them begin to fall one-by-one…. Watching her agony harden and grow, pressing against the delicate fabric that held her breasts.

Suddenly, their eyes locked, and he tightened his grip on the whip.

Then, with a snap of his wrist, . . .
