First. Post. Ever.

I don't consider myself a writer. Maybe that's why I've put off posting anything on my blog for so long. A long time ago, I wrote a poem about a knight in shining armor. I lost that poem. But in trying to remember it, I wrote the poem below. It's a little bit silly and quite a bit sappy...two words that I could readily use to describe myself. Enjoy!

I used to dream of a knight in shining armor.
He would ride up to me on his white stallion,
Sweep me off my feet and into the saddle behind him.
Together, we would ride off into the sunset
To happily live forever.

I had a knight once, and his armor shone into my eyes.
The glaring light distracted me from knowing his heart.
He swept me off my feet, but I missed the saddle.
I ended up falling on my back, watching him ride off into his own personal sunset.
I hope he lives happily ever after.

I no longer dream of a knight in armor, but simply a man.
A stallion is not a necessity, but a bright and promising future is.
I want to be swept off my feet, into someone's arms.
Together, we will walk side-by-side into the dawn of our future
And we will work hard to happily live forever.
