Do you see me

I look in the mirror Who do I see A stranger looks back at me Unanswered questions  Pop in my head Closing my eyes tight I repeat several times Who do you see Not today  I must be strong Don't break now Can't let the tears fall Don't let others down Take a deep breath Soon the mask is in place Feelings pushed back  A smile on my face Face the world Don't let on Hide the pain...Read On

Mirror

Hard to stand here? You bet ya.

You know what's funny? How easy it is to give up on something you cared so much about. You constantly tell yourself that you could never give up that something, whether it be a hobby, a loved one, or even yourself. The last is surprisingly easy though, a few blows to your ego and...                                                                                               ...Read On

A damsel who had prayed for a millennium

  Once upon a time, there was a pretty, pure and versatile damsel from an aristocratic family.   She had a graceful name – Huimei. Her virtue made so many magnates queue up for marriage proposals. She deeply believed her prince charming was on the way. Hence, she turned them all down.   Huimei had a glimpse of a young man at a very crowded fete one day. Thought Huimei to herself,...Read On

A very ill-tempered woman

Why should we get rage always? Why should we get rage with someone or something always?

She consulted a Zen Master for improvement one day.   The Zen Master led her into a room after he listened to her distress. He locked the door up and walked away without saying a word. She had lost her mind completely in a flash. She jumped and...Read On

Outrageous Road Rage

When did bad driving become a personal thing?

Why does someone's crappy driving cause me to froth and seethe like a rabid, discriminating jerk? I think I’ve got an open mind and do try my best to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but operating a vehicle is not a right. It's a privilege. Why do YOU abuse that privilege? Why must you subject me, my family, and the rest of society to your egocentric display? I’m now stuck...Read On

Holding on

Memories everywhere. I used to try and put them away or keep them safe, Not sharing. Such a part of me. Making me who I am. What my life has become. Doesn't mean I can't make new ones. I can share them all.   Never ending memories, I have not lost.   In a thousand different ways, never will I forget. Forever missed and always loved.  Memories I hold on    ...Read On

Missing him

My arms long to hold him Fingertips to touch him tenderly With laughter and tears  I miss him so I will not let the tears fall He asked me not to cry Until he could hold me close And make me smile He is my madman Owns my heart and soul So I wait to be together To let the tears flow Some days like today I miss him more  ...Read On

Let's dance

Hear the music playing Feel it in your soul Taken me in your arms  Look into my smile Hold me very close Sing to me the song The one that makes me smile Even when I trip at times Hold me that much tighter One dance or more The two-step or just to sway It really doesn't matter We let the music take us When you and I are dancing We hear it with our souls    ...Read On

Kindred Spirits, Distant Hearts. Chapter 26

“That's it then,” she said, with a great sadness. “Captivity.”

Benghazi. January 30 th 1942   Maria sighed sadly as she took one last look at the bomb damaged port of Benghazi. The final First Aid Carrier was waiting at the end of the jetty for her and her colleagues, the last of the German prisoners, to board so they could leave for the Hospital Ship moored outside the harbour entrance. “Come on then, we 'aven't got all day!” The...Read On

The Voices in My Head

My struggle with control

I first became aware of them when I was eighteen years old. The voices in my head began to clamor for control of me and it scared me. Metaphorically speaking, they carried pitchforks. They wanted to kill me or run me out of town. My voices had faces. Angry faces. Shouting faces. They had noses, eyes, and hair. Some had shaking fists directed at me. Others simply pressed forward invading...Read On

She waits

A full moon gave her light to the path she traveled. Shadows blended together to give her a warmth. Coming each night to wait gave her a comfort in the dark. As she looked at the moon. She knew the connection was true  With tears that sparkled like the stars above. She waited...  ...Read On

Eight Minutes, Thirty-two Seconds

Cassie twitched. She jerked to the right and, fingers flexing, clawed the metal-tipped armrests before her hands flopped limply onto her lap. Light infiltrated her closed eyelids; swirls of colour that expanded and deepened, driving away the dense shadows of sleep. Feelings – a jumble of emotions with no apparent source – ebbed and faded, leaving behind disjointed remnants of panic and fear...Read On

A Prince Among Writers

Loved by women and admired by men, A prince among writers lay dying, The slow betrayal by his body Robbing him of hope of the long life That in his youth he had expected, Finally to slip away in peace Enfolded in the loving embrace Of devoted family and friends After a long and fruitful autumn His passing celebrated in song. Yet though his body was decaying His thoughts enshrined a new...Read On

A Man Of No Consequence

A little man of no consequence Whose whole life was spent on the margins, His passing barely caused a ripple In the flowing tides of existence, And his substance was just a shadow Briefly noticed and then forgotten Like something on the edge of vision. He had a name, of that I am sure And he surely must have been loved once, If only by his mother and father, But even that is uncertain now,...Read On

A warrior

You have seen much With your eyes Many things have Touched your heart Dealt with pain Struggled with battles Demons and goblins Both in dreams and not Battle scars and wounds You hide them from view Your eyes tell a story Your heart can not lie You are a brave warrior A man of man coats The path you must take The journey is not over Weak you will not be Come share with me ...Read On

Fantastic Revelation

Wind thrashed through my hair. The currents lifting us. The glistening scales rubbed through my pants as I sat upon the saddle. I was finally free of man's expectations and exhortations. Flames seered through the bite of winter, and we flew onward. There our destiny awaited and nothing meant more, except the bond we shared. We are one, and as one we are many. From here to eternity, Man...Read On

Baby Steps

Today was a break At least that is what was told To stand on my own two feet I hold my head up high Not very tall Four foot and eleven But feeling very bold Ooh how tall I feel  As I push my left weight forward A simple baby step Knowing there will be more One step at a time Walking will come again As I did once before Baby steps  I push forward  ...Read On

Black Dog - Chapter 43

At the crossroads two women stood, silhouetted against the lavender and cream of the day's end. The moon lurked somewhere deep in the veils of black branches. Down the hill, Reverend Milton was putting a heavy chain and padlock on the churchyard gate, the sound carrying clear in the quiet. Olivia grimaced at their exposed location. It had to be here, at the crossroads. "Verity!" she hissed....Read On

Black Dog - Chapter 42

The ringing of the telephone dragged Olivia from the borderlands of sleep and she answered with a growled "Who is it?" A crackling pause, then: "Libby, is that you?" The voice on the other end of the line was faint, obscured, familiar from a lifetime ago. "This handwriting is near illegible, dreadful low class scribble..." the words choked off into tears. "Auntie Imogen?" Imogen gave a...Read On
