    I am an anvil

    Stomping with the weight of my transgressions
    Magnetized to kindness
    Yet affectively resilient to it’s knowing glare
    Impenetrable to romance
    Conditioned to be oppositional to commitment
    Coerced to resilience

    Defining myself in silences
    My words are often mistaken
    For flowers
    Amidst a sea of stones
    When it’s only pieces falling off
    As misnomered fears

    I revel in the distance between my past lovers
    And my footsteps to the door
    There are things I carry with me
    That can not be spoken
    Amongst the harsh screams of memories
    They are crushed in a million tons of regret
    And two million more of missed opportunities
    Sacrificed worries
    Insatiable acquaintances

    I am glued to the ground
    With the weight of my transgressions
    And I am not ready to be sorry yet
    Even though I have probably said it a million times before

      I was going to say say less but then the ending is very subtle and then i looked up at the title and well rather than a landslide
    It made me think of a waterfall, like a high mountain watercourse following the contours of the land and then reaching an edge or a pair of skis out skiing. Rather than saying i like the poem so much id like to say i appreciate the technique or the seeing, the seeing is excellent.

      Landslide. Probably my favorite song by Fleetwood Mac. If you've never heard it, check it out. I think you'd like it.

    I think we are all weighed down a bit by our "what ifs" and "should haves". But as long as we don't dwell on them and let them control our lives, I think we have a chance of turning those "what ifs" into something better.

    I leave you with this beautiful poem by Shel Silverstein.

    Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child,
    Listen to the DON’TS
    Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
    Listen to the NEVER HAVES
    Then listen close to me—
    Anything can happen, child,
    ANYTHING can be.

    As always.
    With Love,
