Renee Michelle Homan Heath

I say my name out loud. What does it mean. Is it me? Does it encompass who I am? No.

I am a Sparkly Girl.

I am a virgin.

I am a whore.

A mother.

I am a Sally.

I’m more Sally than my own name. What is it about her that I identify with? Her undying love for a king? The fact that she’s in pieces? What the hell is it about her?

I am more than my name. Only 23 letters, but their meaning is infinite.

Don’t define me, or try to contain me in those 23 letter. It’s better to let me run free. Try to catch up with me, if you can.

I’m a bombshell.

Bawdy.

Fun.

Broken.

Happy.

Then all at once, morose.

A force of nature.

Not to be contained.

Let me go.

Let me fly.

But hold my heart in your hand.

For if you do, then I will love you, too.

My name means selfish.

My name means nothing.

My name is not me.

I am a force of nature and the 23 letters that comprise my name, do not define me.

You jump, I jump. Remember.-Titanic

I feel sorry for the man that loves me. How strong he has to be. To put up with me. My moods. My sadness. My elation. My impulsiveness. How exhausted he must be. I’m a force of nature. Lightning and thunder. A storm that is unaware of her worth. He tells me of my beauty. Every day. He tells me how important and smart I am, yet I do not believe him. I still flit around like I could give a good God damn.

He stays. Why? Why does this good man stay? How he must get tired of loving an insolent child of 45. A woman that will never be happy. A liar. A wanton woman. Crazy beyond words. A bitch. Stubborn as fuck. But with a heart that loves like no other.

With a caring and calm hand he wipes the hair out of my eyes. He can always calm the storm that dwells within me. The chaos. The light that flits everywhere. Like a demented Tinker Bell.

He centers me. He knows me, this good man. He’ll be here forever. Why, I’ll never know. How lucky I am to have such love. How lucky I am to love him.

Tunesday and a Thursday Quote

Force of Nature

It’s been kind of a crazy week so I didn’t post music or a quote. Today, you get both. You may hate Courtney, but, well, I don’t. Never have. She’s a fucking train wreck. So am I. Who the hell isn’t?

The riot grrllll in me needs to thrash and break shit. So go on, take everything, take everything. I want you to!!!!!

And the sky was made of amethyst
And all the stars were just like little fish
You should learn when to go
You should learn how to say no
Might last a day yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
When they get what they want, they never want it again
When they get what they want, they never want it again
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything, I want you to
And the sky was all violet.
I wanna give my violet more violence.
And I’m the one with no soul
One above and one below
Might last a day yeah
Mine is forever
Might last a day, yeah
Mine is forever
When they get what they want, they never want it again
When they get what they want, they never want it again
Go on, take everything take everything I want you to
Go on, take everything take everything I dare you to
I told you from the start just how this would end
When I get what I want I never want it again
Go on, take everything take everyting I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything I want you to
Go on, take everything, take everything I want you to
Go on take everything take everything take everything take everything
