About lscotthoughts

This blog was born after I turned 50, with a little nudging from my family. I write from the heart, focusing mainly on Romance, inspired by my husband of 24 years. However, I also write to inspire, to create smiles, laughter or an uplifting moment to move forward in life. Humor is a big part of who I am. I love to laugh and I love those who make laugh. And lastly, you'll find some tears along your journey here. Life is not all smiles, but it's getting through the trials with the love of our family and friends that is most important. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you enjoyed and found something you resonated with...Lauren

Behind the Faces

“Be yourself” is
what they say
Let your mask
fall to the ground
(don’t be afraid)
watch all pretenses crumble

yet if they don’t like
what lies beneath 
be aware of the
curve balls of judgment

Where is the truth
in their words?
Each syllable’s tone
sounds compassionate

We could be tone deaf
or maybe we simply
hope for the best

(I’ve dropped the mask and have been hurt.
I’ve dropped the mask and
have been blessed with good friends.

I still believe in “being yourself” no matter what;
letting your heart lead the way and hoping for the best.)

Flirting Forever :)

He: You’re easy on the eyes
She: I have to say likewise
He: Can I have your number?
She: Only if you’ll remember
He: Will you go out with me tomorrow night?
She: It would be a delight
He: The night was amazing
She: You have my heart racing
He: Can I kiss you goodnight?
She: I was hoping you might
He: Can I see you again?
She: I’d like that, when?
He: How about us together?
She: I’m thinking forever

I posted this two years ago (Jan. 2012) and
thought it would be fun to share again.
So I hope you enjoy a little “playful” for your Monday.
Happy Labor Day! ♥
