Katy Perry – Wide Awake

“Wide Awake”

I’m wide awake [2x]

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
(I’m wide awake)
How did I read the stars so wrong?

(I’m wide awake)
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on—
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
Crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Not losing any sleep
I picked up every piece
And landed on my feet
(I’m wide awake)
Need nothing to complete myself, no

(I’m wide awake)
Yeah, I am born again
Out of the lion’s den
I don’t have to pretend
(And it’s too late)
The story’s over now, the end

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on—
On the concrete

Falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
I’m crashing from the high
I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

(I’m wide awake)
Thunder rumbling
Castles crumbling
(I’m wide awake)
I am trying to hold on

(I’m wide awake)
God knows that I tried
Seeing the bright side
(I’m wide awake)
I’m not blind anymore

I’m wide awake [2x]

Yeah, I’m falling from cloud nine
(It was out of the blue)
Crashing from the high
You know I’m letting go tonight
(Yeah, I’m letting you go)
I’m falling from cloud nine

I’m wide awake [5x]

May Writing Prompts

may

Phew!  I almost forgot to get these done!  Lol… Guess I’m gonna start needing more reminders in my old age.  😉  Thank you Dorinda Duclos for reminding me this month.  ❤️

And if you’re new to the prompt scene, here’s what I like to do with them…

To begin, settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones.  Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer.  Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below.  Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!  Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like.  And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense.  The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day.  Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.

Have a great month of writing everyone!  ~M xo

Buffalo sauce sayings…

buffalo-1436182_960_720

We went to the zoo today, and my 9 yr old daughter pointed over at the buffalo and said, “Well, there’s what makes our sauce!”

It didn’t register with me at first what she had actually said.  Then when I realized what she meant, I couldn’t stop laughing.  She always succeeds in making me laugh.  Lol…

Thank you my sweet Auti for always being you.  I think one of the reasons God gave me you was because he knew I needed to laugh more.  You bring a rainbow of color wherever you go and the sun never stops shining when you’re around.

Well, I’ve got some rather exciting news to tell all of you about, and I just can’t hold it in any longer. Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been rather aloof these days, and I promise you, it comes with good reason. I have been secretly working on 12 poetry books, and my […]

My fortune tonight…

Stop searching forever, happiness is next to you.

And yes, there she was… my sweet little Auti, sitting right next to me tonight as I read this fortune.

The picture above, she drew for me the other day.  She was all excited to tell me that she even gave us matching dresses!

Happiness is definitely right next to you, my dear sweet daughter.  There is no better treasure in this whole wide world.  ❤️
