that little spot between your shoulderblades is poetry

September 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

 

she probably couldn’t really write poetry to save her life
 
but she sees it
 
it does this kind of weird little shimmer and shake in the air
 
so she doesn’t really see it
 
more of the outline
 
as if it were wearing perfect camoflage, but then it shivered and moved ever so slightly
 
but whenever she whips out her pen
 
she remember that her tongue is so much less than silver
 
oh yeah
 
forgot about that little problem, didn’t you, lee?
 
she wishes she could forget
 
maybe if she forgot that her poetry reeked to high heaven she could write without being ashamed
 
without fretting over every line, every phrase, word, and syllable
 
and she could just write
 
then her journal would be full
 
and her chest would be empty
 
not heavy
 
carrying around all the things she’s too scared to put down in solid black ink
 
but this is who she is
 
a girl who can’t write poetry
 
who can’t decide on anything
 
who wishes she could lay in bed all day and stare at the sunwashed ceiling and the fantasies played out on the backs of her eyelids
 
who doesn’t wear makeup because its a hassle and doesn’t really help anyway
 
who looks in the mirror every day
 
who sometimes likes what she sees
 
and sometimes feels like crying
 
who still reads fairytales
 
but stopped believing in them, oh, about six years ago
 
who laughs hysterically at the ridiculous parts in romantic movies when everyone else is on the verge of tears
 
because she knows that doesn’t really happen
 
and even if it does it doesn’t happen to her
 
who hates walking barefoot because the world gets on her feet
 
who feels regret every day for her own stupid mistakes
 
years in the past
 
who still manages to smile in that crazy way that makes you want to smile back
 
who inadvertently turns chance meetings into lifechanging encounters
 
who spends all her time daydreaming
 
even tho she knows those dreams will never come true
 
who is waiting
 
who is standing still and running forward, forward, forward in a great big circle
 
b/c right now is terrifying
 
but the future makes her feel like passing out
 
and the past
 
let’s not even go into that
 
because the past
 
that’s where you are
 
or were
 
or something
 
and she knows
 
but she’s waiting
 
she’s waiting for something she knows will never happen
 
because she realized last saturday
 
that she was six years too late
 
six years too stupid

i want a boyfriend who will make me be adventurous
 
i am a deeply cynical person who hates getting my shoes muddy and the kind of girl who only does things when they benefit me in some way
 
i need a boy who won’t allow me to be lazy
 
i need a boy who will make everything so much fun that i can’t possibly think of a reason to say no…that i won’t want to think of a reason to say no
 
i want him to drag me along forest trails with a picnic lunch packed in rucksacks till we reach a time-forsaken clearing where only the fair folk tread
 
i want him to kidnap me and drive me along scenic roads to any number of quiet hamlets with their quaint shops and welcoming residents
 
i want him to read stories with me and dream of far-off places and ancient heroes together
 
i want him to drink coffee with me at a table in the local cafe, drawing pictures in my journal and delicately kissing the whipped cream off my nose
 
i want him to dance with me to warm piano melodies on a hardwood floor with sunlight streaming in through open windows
 
i want to adore the way his face turns red when he’s angry or embarrassed
 
i want to silently hold him when he feels the world is coming to an end
 
i want him to love me for the selfish, lazy, cynical person i am
 
i want to go grocery shopping with him even though he’ll have to tell me “no, we can’t get that” half a million times before we make it to the check-out counter
 
i want to cook together with him in the sunlit kitchen even though i am highly prone to burning things
 
i want to be able to tell him i love him every single day even tho i will never be able to tell him how much
 
i want him to make me learn new things
 
i want him to make me see the world in a fresh new way every time i wake up in the morning, just because i know he’s there
 
i want to do everything with him: every mundane little thing
 
i want him to remind me that i’m alive

Kim Da-Hyung 6.4

This outfit is inspired by what Da-Hyung wears in episode 6 of 1% of Anything.
 
I’m in love with this coral color, but feel that I couldn’t pull it off very well. Sad day.
 
I think this would be a cute and comfy outfit for traveling…on a train would be really cool…I like trains because they travel quickly enough, but they also take their time enough for you to enjoy the scenery…which is my favorite part of traveling.

Enjoy!

Lee ❤

What Do You Think? Would you wear this outfit? Can you pull off this coral color? What’s your preferred mode of transportation?

1% Sister 6.1

This look is inspired by an outfit worn by Jae-In’s little sister in episode 6 of 1% of Anything.
 
She actually appears a lot, but I find her character really annoying. This is the first outfit of hers that I’ve actually really wanted to do. Her actual shirt had a greater percentage of pink and was more off-the-shoulder, but I felt this shirt actually works better with the yellow accents.

Enjoy!

Lee ❤

What Do You Think? Would you wear this outfit? How often do you wear bold colors? Do like the bright yellow accessories?

Eun-Jin 6.2

Inspired by the outfit worn by Eun-Jin in episode 6 of 1% of Anything.
 
I took Eun-Jin’s basic look and added some matching accessories to make it look more purposeful. She does always look cute, though. I like her signature heart-shaped necklace. A lot.
 
And, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m totally in love with C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve…I use it all the time! ❤

Enjoy!

Lee ❤

What Do You Think? Would you wear this outfit? What do you think about the coral accessories? Do you wear your jewelry in gold or silver? both? neither?

Eun-Jin 6.1

Inspired by the outfit worn by Eun-Jin in episode 6 of 1% of Anything. Eun-Jin wears this outfit when she’s ratting out Da-Hyung and Jae-In.
 
I love the layering of neutrals that Eun-Jin tends to do…the look comes off as very polished and put together.

Enjoy!

Lee ❤

What Do You Think? Would you wear this outfit? Do you mix or match your neutrals? Which neutral nailpolish shade do you prefer?

Kim Da-Hyung 6.3

Inspired by the outfit worn by Kim Da-Hyung in episode 6 of 1% of Anything. Da-Hyung wears a similar outfit on her “date” with Jae-In.
 
I’m a fan of this lilac color, tho Da-Hyung’s actual vest was more of a pink color. I actually like the structure of this vest a lot better.

Enjoy!

Lee ❤

What Do You Think? Would you wear this outfit? What is your favorite shade of purple? Do you have any outfits that can transition from office to date?
