I Saw Your Face [Creative Piece]

It has been a while since I've shared any of my more creative writing, and I figured it was well past due. Plus, when the mood hits...it hits hard, and you just have to get the thoughts out. Ya know what I'm saying? ;)

I saw your face last night
I don't think I could have expected it any less
My dreams were still and quiet
But then, there you were
Different than how I remembered, but somehow still the same

I saw your face last night
And the first thing I thought was, "It's been a while"
So long, in fact, that I was finally beginning to forget you
Not in the usual way of forgetting
But in a more forced way, because keeping you in my memory was no longer an option

I saw your face last night
Oh, how I wanted to run
 To avoid falling back into old emotions that have already once torn me apart
But my feet stood firm, and I remained by your side
Falling into all that I know to be you, once again

I saw your face last night
It disturbed and enthralled all at once
Yet when I awoke, you were gone
Reminding me that what we once had, will never again be
And never should have been to begin with


Creative Endeavors

I have been so incredibly back and forth on whether or not to share what I am about to share. However, as one of my more recent personal goals is to challenge myself and do things that make me a bit uncomfortable, I have decided to go for it. You'll see what I mean.

I have been thinking a lot about creativity lately....the meaning of it, the process of it, the subjectivity of it...so on and so forth. Along the same lines, I have been thinking about ways that creative people can boost their creativity, and get more out of it. Usually, I would take these thoughts and turn them into a blog post. But, I decided instead to share it via my newest creative endeavor.

So, here it is! I'm not sure if this will become a "thing," but I did quite enjoy making it. I certainly do not see it becoming a replacement for my blog, because writing is my first true love. But, I think it may be something fun to do, as well as a nice, new way to document my life.

Feedback is appreciated! Also, please feel free to share additional tips and tricks on the subject that work for you.
