Embedded (Less Is More)


Some things are said better without words.
Some things don’t have to be spoken to be heard.
I know this every time I look into your eyes.
You don’t have to say a word to get your point across.
I can’t deny this.

Hold on to me without laying a finger on me.
Follow me everywhere without taking a step.
You take my breath away just by looking my way.
They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

Never have I tried to sit back & watch, always chasing after something.
Never been one to wait, it’s always now or never.
You came to me & saw something I couldn’t see.
After everything I just want to hear you say anything.
I can’t deny this.

Hold on to me without laying a finger on me.
Follow me everywhere without taking a step.
You take my breath away just by looking my way.
They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

What you are to me will never change.
Once you’re in, can’t get you out & I wouldn’t want to anyway.
Tell me your secret, I’ll be your shelter.
Your love remains even when things are not the same.
Your ways are embedded in me like a tattoo.

They say less is more, but I’ll ignore them.
Because I want more of you.

Exciting Explorations


“I write to explore, not to excite.” – Stephen Quammie

After having a discussion with a friend of mine who is getting ready to publish another Ebook, I found myself stuck on this one line I said. I am always curious where one line will take me. Will I write something with ease or will it be an uphill battle?

I don’t really aim to grab anyone’s attention (yes, as a Writer I want to be read), I want to have a conversation, or a journey of sorts. I want my words to not only represent me, but to also be an extension of you. I don’t know you & you don’t know me, but on some level after scratching the surface, we aren’t all that different. I want to figure out what makes us click, while celebrating our differences.

You guys push me to be better. You inspire me with your vivid stories & gripping visuals. Looking at your world allows me to write & express things that are outside of my realm of knowledge or experience, but through connecting with you I am able to take on your joys & pains with you, in my own way.

Sometimes I’m not really writing about myself at all, I’ve just become the face of what someone is feeling because it’s easier to see & accept things from a distance. (Speaking of which, I need to get my eyes checked.)

I say all of that, to say this:

Life would be pretty boring without you. Thanks for being my muses.

Much love & respect,
Stephen Quammie (The Wandering Mind)
