Is this Really the End?

I am just me, I refuse to change.

Do you not see what you've done to me My heart breaking into tiny pieces  From words that have been said  Once a friendship that never ceases A void is left where once was full  Of a love so gentle and pure  That was growing into the night  Now left everything unsure  I am worth more than what you've done  Making me feel smaller than a snail  You know how to hurt me so well You did it...Read On

Our Castle In Spain

The fairies new home

We built a new home Our castle in Spain A place in the sun Where it rarely rains   Surrounding it There is  a moat A moat so big We needed a boat   Within the water Lurking down deep Is our very own sea monster Protecting our Keep   With our trusty companion A tortoise named Neville Who once was an Angel But crossed paths with the Devil   We'll live in our castle ...Read On

The Light of Love

At last the light of this bright truth has shone On my dull and uncomprehending mind, That for my sake you have all else forgone, For without thought and ne'er a glance behind You gave your heart, and doing heaped upon My head such shame that I could be so blind. For sake of me you have your life redrawn, All other loves for me to dust consigned, And claimed this, not as loss,...Read On

Walking Among Daffodils

It was a day just like today, I remember,  The beginning of spring, a day of fresh beauty.  Vanished were the harsh and bitter winds of winter.  The landscape dull and heavy under a sullen sky,  And the very earth hard like iron, cold and dead.  But that was all forgotten now, just like a dream  From which we had awakened into a new world,  Redolent with hope and promise, lifting...Read On

Sir Harold the Earless Wonder

A rabbit with small ears and big brains saves the day.

Harold the rabbit had exceptionally small ears. They were so small, in fact, you could barely see them. All the other rabbits made fun of Harold. It didn’t matter to them that Harold could hop and nibble like the best of them. Or that he was smart. They simply could not get past his ears, small as they were. The rabbits had nicknames for Harold, such as “Stubby,” or when they were...Read On

An Angel You Are

Heaven and Angels.

We dream of you  Our little boy  Playing with cars  Trains and toys  But God decided  To take you away  From me and your mum  It kills us each day  But now we know  That you have wings  An angel you are  And have no sins  Our blessed boy  In paradise  An angel with wings  You'll be pure and wise  Beautiful son  Lost to me But one day  When we cease to be  We will see you again  And on...Read On

Love and Hate

It's sad how hateful this world is...

Eyes open to the sky, Rain pours down like tears from clouds dark as night like my eyes. Hair is drenched, Clothes are torn, but I am so alive even as I die. Tossed out on the curb, The cold is my only friend, freezing my heart slowing my mind. Voices stop shouting, Punches stop coming, memories disappear the bruises will too. This pain will not be here for long, ...Read On

Better Than You

It's inevitable, it seems, to encounter someone like this along life's journey...

Hello, I'm new here. I am better than you. I'm smarter and kindlier — Cleverer too! You're stupid - you're snooty - You're unworthy of my precious time. As for me, it's plain to see: I'm magnificent and sublime! While I am Secretariat, Or perhaps Seattle Slew, The rest of you, a sorry lot, Are destined to become glue. This may seem rather blunt, But that's just how I am. If...Read On

The Power of Praeyer

An agnostic praying mantis embarks on a strange quest for the meaning of prayer.

High up in a tree a large and important insect, known by all as the Grand Poopah, said in a deep voice: “Moses.” “Yes, Most Honorable Grand Poopah, what is your bidding?” said a somewhat smaller insect. “Oh, and by the way, feel free to call me Moe.” “Please lead us in prayers, Moses,” said the Grand Poopah. “That’s Moe, with an ‘e’ at the end,” said Moe. “And do I have to lead?” ...Read On

Don't Go Into The Woods

Magic Of Love

Picture Prompt One

I have a desire for every inch of you. I need the smell of your breath on my needing lips.  The taste of you under the covers,  And I can feel your voice running through every fibre of my being. It’s the whispering way you tell me you love me that makes me blush. You know what it does to me, causing you to reel in delight.  Telling me every chance you get, just to see my redden cheeks. ...Read On

In This Moment

Just Us

The soft caress of your thumb brushes along my hand, making my heartbeat thump hard. I blush, watching it move along the smoothness of my skin. You watch me, watching you and it makes you smile. Your eyes meet mine, pulling my gaze up to yours, I bite my lower lip becoming a little shy. You lean in, your breath on my skin. I can feel it tickle against my lips, making me release my lower one....Read On

Belief

Sometimes it's hard to be yourself...

I dreamed that all my wounds had healed, which freed me to move on. My confidence was coming back, I'd thought it all but gone. A smile, a laugh, an opening up, a glimmer of some hope, But my epistemic self still said I was a dope. Not sure if I was worthy, was sadly my belief And a brave face was the one I wore, despite the mental grief. Suppressing it, I steeled myself and closed my...Read On

The Four Seasons

A suite of Haikus, read by our own Daisy.

SPRING Dripping from the eaves, Snow melts slowly while it turns The hard sod to mud. ***** The dog barks hoarsely, He echoes in vibrations As the moon shines down. ***** Up through the green turf, Crocuses lift heads of pearl Into buoyant air. ********************** SUMMER Sunshine comes with force, As the days grow languorous With burdensome heat. ***** ...Read On

Alone

I’m alone and I yearn for you, I’m alone and I burn for you, I’m alone and I cry for you, I’m alone and I scream for you, I’m alone and I crave for you. When I’m alone I feel out of control, When I’m alone I feel lost in my own world, When I’m alone I can hear the screams, When I’m alone I can feel the pain, When I’m alone I feel as though this place we call...Read On

I Wonder

When I’m with you, there is a smile on my face. When I’m with you, I know I’m safe. When I’m with you, I know I can simply be me. When I’m with you, nothing can touch me. When I’m with you, memories are made. I live, I breathe, I trust, I take, I give, I do, All that is you. I often wonder what my life would have been if you never entered my life. ...Read On

Ramblings Of Forgiveness

Can You Forgive?

Things that are done can’t be undone. Sometimes things that are done are wrong, and can’t be forgiven. Sometimes things are done, but can be forgiven. When do we know which is to be forgiven? Sometimes we do things we know are wrong, because we are selfish, and want what we can’t even though we know it’s wrong. Do we care when we go after that one thing we shouldn't have? No, usually not,...Read On

Trapped

Is There A Key To Leave?

I've been locked up inside of this house. It's muggy and filled with toxic air. I go insane trapped behind these walls, No one to love, and no way to receive. For I’m thirsty for the knowledge, to figure out how to open these doors that hold me in the attic of my mind. ...Read On

Painfully Broken

Thanks For Showing Me I'm Nothing

You know what? I trusted you. I let my guard down because you told me you didn't want to be like my exes. You told me you wanted to be different. You made me promises from day one. You kept telling me to trust you, because you weren't going to hurt me like the others. You told me I was too good to be hurt like that. That J-P was a foolish man, and didn't know what he was losing, when he...Read On
