Love And Hate

I love dancing ballet, pointe, tap, and jazz.
And cheering and stunting and all that pizzaz.

Cuddling with my two toy poodles, Paris and Oliver.
And out with friends, shopping, movies or dinner.

Spending time with my family around the TV.
Watching movies by the fireplace, and me and mom drinking tea.

Eating grilled cheese sandwiches for a snack.
And chocolate ice cream curled up reading a paperback.

Playing in the surf, walking along the beach.
Wearing a purple bathing suit and eating a peach.

I hate traveling in airplanes and being alone.
And my brothers leaving for college and being on their own.

Having allergies that will not go away.
And creepy spiders that keep crawling my way.

Eating fish that is put on my dish.
And scary movies that I do not wish.

Being scared of sharks and snakes.
And hating the feeling of tummy aches and toothaches.
