Our peace

Maybe I am letting go
  but maybe it is all just show

Maybe I am running away
  but maybe it is just say

Maybe I am moving on
  but maybe I am just a pawn

Maybe I am waiting here
  but maybe I am the one to steer

Maybe I am not the only one
  maybe you are the one who felt alone
Round and round we've gone
  but too long

But maybe its time to cease
  and recognize our peace.

Not yet

Sometimes I wish you could hear my thoughts
   to hear me screaming out the truth...
   but those words aren't allowed to be spoken...
   not here.

Sometimes I wish I could tell you
   what I really feel when I see you...
   but that truth could lead to so much pain...
   not now.

Sometimes I wish I could kiss you
   so I knew if that passion is still there...
   but what am I supposed to do when you don't kiss me back...
   not this.

Sometimes I wish I heard what you thought
   because I see the look in your eyes
   and I know you feel it too by the red in your cheek...
   not yet.

Sometimes I wonder what would happen
   if we both could tell each other how we really felt
   because then... maybe we could finally know that
   it's time.

So let it go

I wrote this in 2011, but just found it again today :) I just really liked it! still true today!! 

So let it Go
I know more than I show
                  I am just waiting;
I feel more than I let on
                  I am just patient;
I see more than you know
                  I am just watching;

You don’t know what I am
                  I’m a mystery;
You don’t know what I feel
                  I’m a journey all on my own;
You don’t know what I see
                  I’m not in the past…

                  So let it go.

Little Drummer Girl

Oh little drummer girl,
  drumming away your life,
too much sound,
   not enough sight

Oh little drummer girl,
   running way from reality,
unaware of what you see,
   but continuing the drum drum drumming...

Oh little drummer girl,
  it is not Him you are hearing,
your noise is too loud,
  and your cries are overwhelming

But my little drummer girl,
  it is not your drum drum drumming
  that takes away from His words you don't hear

It is the hum hum humming
  of the world buzzing in your ear

Keep out the humming,
  little drummer girl,
Keep out the humming...

Let the Lord be your drum
  as you keep on drum drum drumming

So along with my posts about writing, poetry, or life, I also want to start writing about recipes I have been trying lately :)

This is the one for today: Pumpkin Cake Cheesecake. Here is the URL:

So this took a long time to make, especially between preparing separately the cake and then the cheesecake, and I ended up having the wrong cake pan so I had to split it into two cakes, but worth it. We were too excited to have the cake though, so we didn't wait quite 6 hours to dig in, but I would indeed suggest waiting :D

Here are some pictures:

I hope you get to try some! I'll save you a slice ;)
