I broke all the rules for you …

“All of these lines across my face tell you the story of who I am…

But these stories don’t mean anything when you have no one to tell them to…”

♡ The Tale Of My Heart ♡

for the awards you honored my blog with!

I usually don’t do award posts on Broken Sparkles, but I’ve been showered with appreciation and love, and I couldn’t leave the gesture without expressing my gratitude, so here, “I broke all the rules for you”. All of these award nominations say I should share a few things about myself … it has always been awkward to talk about myself, but …

I love white roses, red candles, airplanes and blue colors

I want to live in a place where summer lasts forever

I dislike wrinkled bed sheets and people who don’t know what they want

I wish I had the passion to write poetry like Pablo Neruda

I collect post cards, a post card from a place I haven’t been to can make me smile for days, weeks

I wish I had a job that will keep me in different countries every month

The best time I ever had was on my first trip to Egypt

I love standing on the metro platform when the trains from both directions leave at the same time

The only man that ever loved me honestly, never heard me saying “I love you”

The rest about me, you can read between the lines of my posts

These awards mean so much to me, thank you all for being my blogging friends, “no story means anything if there is no one to share it with”! As for who I’d like to nominate … everyone who stops by here deserves an award, consider yourself gifted with “The most sparkling award”, “you all make me feel like a million bucks”!

The poem in this post came spontaneously, unexpectedly and for that I’d like to thank Sam for the inspiration!

Visit Sam’s blog Cerca Trova, it is worth your time!


Thank You, I’m Not Interested …

by Samer El Abed and Blaga Todorova


The Blind leads the Blind,
echoes and shadows collide.

The Ignorant leads the Ignorant,
innocence lapses with time.

The Criminal preaches Justice,
bullets color the indigo sky.

The Hater lectures love,
hearts blossom only when it’s dark.

The Holy man leads the Mob,
faith is no longer part of the world clock.

If that’s your gift of Freedom,
inhaling with agony drops of liberty.

If that’s your gift of Democracy,
caging the last breath of hope.

If that’s your gift of Justice,
replacing the light of values with shame.

If that’s your gift of Life,
marching over thoughts and reasons.

Thank you, I’m not interested …

Thank you everyone for reading and leaving comments,

I will be away for the next 10 days and I will return visits when I’m back!

Love & Peace …
