Podcast: Noble Blood

I must say when I first listen to this podcast almost two years ago, I did not think that this would become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. I was at work looking for something to listen to as I was cleaning. At the time, I was into the royal family for some reason. I stumble on to Noble Blood, and I have been hooked ever since. I have learned so much that I thought I knew, but as it turns out I did not.

My favorite episode is of course episode 12 The Ice Queen, I just love that story, and I think it should be turned into a movie. I think I also like is that the episodes are not that long. That is simply perfect, and the host is perfect. Her voice is smooth and soft, but with enough power to keep you hook. I think this should be show like Drunk History was.  The host is Dana Schwartz.

Poem: The Den

It holds everything, but not everything.

The secret conversation in the dark, the heart ache of two lovers drifting apart.

This place was special, yet I barely can remember what it looks like.

I just remember the things that happen there.

The way it made us feel as stood on its grounds.

It was not a home; it was just a room.

The room where the family would meet, the room where they would part.

It could not hold heat or air, yet it was full of it year-round.

It was not always there; it was something added on as the family started to grow.

It was the bed for some of us, it was the dance rehearsals for most.

The place that gave us hope, but also showed us everything is temporary.

It gave us grief, over the dead.

It saw us cry as we try to heal the broken parts of our body not could not quite heal.

It brought us to together as it was slowing tearing us apart.

This was not just a room; this was our room.

This was the den.

Poem: Finding Me

My mind is open, but it is not free.

My heart is broken, but it is not shattered.

My love is real, but no longer here.

My strength is weaking, but my soul is on fire.

My anger is real, but my hatred is gone.

My doubt is selfless, but my giving will never change.

I have tried all that I can to be me, but me is no longer working.

I do not know any other to be, but I know me is just not enough.

I thought I was going to be whole by now, but I am just as broken as ever.

Will my life ever change, will my love ever stop being ignored.

The answers are not giving at the best, but the rest is what we need.

I cannot give an answer to the you, but can you give one to me.

Is what I am doing in vain, but just my pain.

I could just be too open and broken to know, but I have to find the reason for being.

Poem: Pieces

My tears are dry.

My heart is broken, but my love is strong.

I need you around, but I need to move on.

To what I am not sure.

We fight so hard, yet we cannot love any more.

I used to think that I needed you, but true is I do not.

I want you, but I do not think that you want me.

You used to love me, at least that is what I think.

We need to have a conversation where we can talk face to face.

This will help me, but I know it is not what you want.

My heart is full of pieces, and they all belong to you.

They need to be put together, but that is something I cannot do.

I wish I could live in your eyes, and you live in my heart.

I know I hurt you and it was supposed to be for better or worse.

It never said when then line was to be cross.

I guess it is just broken for us to be.

Now I must put my pieces tighter on my own.

Poem: Rising

It is early in the morning, the sun has still not rose.

I am out of my bed thinking about my day.

It will be the same as yesterday.

My hope and dreams are gone. I am no longer me.

I cannot see the stars, even with my light being almost out.

The trees are no longer making a sound.

The wind is not my friend.

My life is no longer my life.

My friends are no longer my friends.

The dreams that I dreamt are floating away.

I need to find a new me or least look for the old me.

The one that gives me strength and the one that will be worth living.

My time is now, and my hope is forever.

The sun is down now, but I know one day it will rise.
