Quote: Now I Remember


“I keep forgetting to remember why I can’t stand you & then it hits me. You have no style or tact.” – Stephen Quammie

Some people just rub me the wrong way & it becomes increasingly harder to ignore the reasons why. I don’t feel any better after saying it, I was being honest.

Have some respect for not only yourself, but other people & it will make things much easier for you.

Impaired Vision


You love games when I’m not playing.
You once told me that you would give your life for me, but not your body.
With the promises made what else is there to be said.
Your joke was my dream & everything in between was middling at best.
Sometimes we do crazy things & dare to call it love.
Is the absence of clarity even worth seeing?
Because your sight brings me a new kind of pain.

Is this what you want for us?
Is this what you want for yourself?
To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
But is it my love that you want to fall into?

Here is where I loved you, in the shadow of the day & in the light of the night.
As a star follows after the glow of the day, I followed after you for what good it did me.
Not for nothing, I’m just saying that I dreamed where you danced around & every move you made pushed me further out of view.
There’s always truth in silence & pain in delays, so I’m done waiting for you to say something for real.
I don’t want you to commit the sweetest sin, telling me everything under the Sun until I burn away like a bonfire made of all the tomorrows that’ll never come.

You can’t be so blind.
You can’t be so blind when you have it all.
To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
I can’t be so careless.
I can’t be so careless when you have it all.

To be honest, I could love you till my dying day.
You can’t be so blind & I can’t be so careless.

NOTE:
This was written in May 2012, but I finally found the nerve to finish it tonight.

Class Is In Session Boys


This is for the man-child that tips baseball caps instead of hats & thinks sports jackets are the new sports blazer. This is for the guy with one good suit & ten pairs of Jordan’s with a cap to match each one. This is why hearing Justin Bieber say “Swaggy” irks me.

Style is more than labels, it’s ageless substance. Class is not found on the price tags left hanging off your fresh kicks, it’s the priceless look on ladies faces when you stop in your tracks to hold a door open.

You can’t talk straight with that grill in your mouth & you didn’t comb your hair with that comb lodged into your ‘fro.

Man up or shut up.

“Fix up, look sharp.” – Dizzee Rascal

The Non-Conformist Friendship Party


Friends should not be put on a leash. When you have real friends you should allow them to meet. Sure some of them might not get along at first (or at all) but if they care about you, that common interest should be enough. Every friendship functions differently.

Why do some people like having Splinter Cells (groups)?

Splinter Cells are small groups that separate & operate independently of each other & each serves a particular purpose.

Whether that is done because you like having a “getaway” from the norm or because you have your own messed up insecurities, it’s not fair to your friend(s). It’s not fair to keep people apart because you feel that you will no longer be the center of attention. Look, no one wants to steal your spotlight, well none of your real friends anyway.

So I’ve decided that my friends & other people who think like them should be called “The Non-Conformist Friendship Party” because we like to mix & mingle with everyone. Friends, families & love interests are welcome to join us without fear of exclusion, judgment or griping about attention. We’re friends because we actually like each other. It’s not about race, money, creed, looks or labels.

At the end of the day it’s about trust & respect. We trust that we’ll be in each others corner & we respect each others decisions. Now we may not always agree or like those decisions, but we won’t badger you about it.

So what are your ground rules for a good friendship?

In honor of my friends that saw Avengers with me this weekend, Non-Conformist Friendship Party Assemble!
