    When I look out the window onto unsuspecting pedestrians, their physical demeanor looking worn down and over worked. I can just feel their daily struggle  to keep up with this ever fading world as I catch a glimpse of their faces. Downtrodden. Their walk, slumped over and heavy.
    Around the cafe these days sights like this aren't uncommon. People lack inspiration and passion to live. The only thing keeping them going is the will to just survive. The lady bugs seem happier than the people coming in and out. They crawl around the window pane cheery, unaffected by the worlds political unrest, illnesses and depression that the average adult suffers.
    Girl with the brunette hair. Fingers flying over the phone that must have cost an arm and a leg which seem so disposable to trend seeking young adults. The wind blows through her hair ever so slightly and the sun glistens on her face. She's beautiful. I can only steal short lived periods of admiration for fear I might scare her away.
    Wearily she glances back and forth between her laptop and notepad. Her eyebrows furrowed and concentrated as she focuses on her lessons. Venti coffee, must've been a long day.
    Its funny how several people can be in one room, but yet no one speaks. No acknowledgement of each others existence. Enthralled with themselves and the technology they hold so dear. So careful not to disturb one another or be disturbed themselves. An indignant huff of invasion if other wise done so.
    I wish I had the descriptive ability to justly picture the beauty of the light shining through the cafe windows. I've seen such beauty in the writings of the talented.
I feel that there is so much more to achieve in creative... anything. I feel that I've been chosen to just be. No special talents or skill set. An empty human shaped canvas waiting for my colors to miraculously appear.
    The chairs along the cobblestone walkway appear to be lonely. Only each other to talk to, the traffic and passer bys to watch.
There is something magical about a cool, overcast day in October. The public seems to sleep on days like these. Leaving the streets and sidewalks empty as homes become more and more bustling and chaotic. Like little boxes filled with bumble bees.
    She packs up her things to leave. The phone call sounded urgent. As she feverishly closes her books and trots down the stairs, I am alone. I feel a sense of relief and sadness wash over me. Free to breath and look around as I please.
    Inadvertently making eye contact with ones on the cobblestone walkway as they make their way into the coffee shop. I smile, they only look away, embarrassed. How dare I see them off guard. Never go against the grain, the social state of affairs, or status quo if you will.
    I wonder if lady bugs have social rank amongst themselves or other buggy life.

    The streets have become busier now. The cha-ching of the cash register down below suggests that business is booming. I believe it is now my turn to be in leaving. Saying goodbye to a most beloved place of rest and thought.
    My path of the lady bug continues else where.
The Path of the Lady Bug
I wrote this in my favorite coffee spot while people watching and lady bug watching.
duh.
Loading...
Family or foe how could you ever know
when you love too deeply and trust too hard it’s easy to be in a hurry to find the best in people.
Crushed in spirit and soul in distress what are you to do.
Born in blood ha...
Means nothing to the worst of stones that walk around like people
Angry they throw their fists around to break more stone, just to find themselves eroding away at every blow.
Self-pity and resentment sets in.
You, an empty husk of a person desperate to move on
Obsessing, what if, what if, what if...
One that claws at love but when cracked open there's only mirrors past.
All you see is a little girl, the youngest of three...the childhood she never had, growing up too fast, no support, a free for all with her siblings even when reached out too. every "help me" was thrown away, a pest, a nobody worth helping, leaving her to take care of only herself whether she live or die, and she will live like this for the rest of her life. Never trusting anyone. Like seeing a group of scavengers begging for mother and father to drop and inkling of love and genuine interest, but only venom and harsh words were ever given.
Searching for some sort of fulfillment, trying to scavenge love anywhere that could be rustled up, even out of the most garbage of people.
Abusive love is all that was ever known, which is never love, just selfishness, confusion and trickery. Just a young sprout-ling, desperate for someone to care, heartlessly bruised, beaten and raped. But yet somehow it’s all her fault. Everything is all her fault.
People never change. Rigid bitterness at the ones who hurt you. Never moving or bending. You find yourself face to face with the ones made of stone, what do you do?
Will you just be more stone?
And even though life continues, that little girl ,all grown up now, just goes through the motions, too terrified to speak up, to share an opinion, to say no, to find interest in daily living, making love becomes increasingly difficult as she becomes even more terrified of doing something wrong. Her subconscious numbs her world.  
Wishing and wishing she could recover. Wishing she could feel and love as deeply as she used to. To feel genuine happiness and excitement.
Children Never Fully Recover
Our past always bubbles to the surface when no one is watching.

Okay, I'm noticing a pattern here.
But I don't want to stop
Everything seems farther now
Everything disappears

So I'm supposed to tell a story dear
one not so happy though
Tales of stillness and anger
The outside, the exosphere

The air is getting thinner in space flow
it gets harder to breathe
my skin turns to ice and snow
The wind stops our tomorrow

And the digital light seems to answer
taking my every code
all I see is dot matrix
pixel-ated complexity to me

Entire enterprise of existence
seeming to dissolve now
as my eyes close all I hear
Dithering jubilee of brilliance  

as the anniversary of recreation
begins
