About bella685


First and foremost, I'm the blessed and proud mother of Katy, (my Angel Face and my One and Only). I'm a writer mostly of poetry, but also I've got a few short stories and other things that I'll attempt to share. I'm a lover of books, word games, trivia, things that make me think, laugh or inspire me, not necessarily in that order, with exception of the first two. I'm vastly deeper than a puddle, smarter than (most) 5th graders and loyal to a fault. I'm a trustworthy person who is friendly to all, an adversary to none.

I tend to be very shy and reserved, {maybe just a tad insecure}, but once past that, I have a warped sense of humor. While most of my writing is from personal experience and is an outlet for me to say what's on my mind that would otherwise be internalized, not all of it is.

As a way to honor the memory of my daughter, Katy, I dedicate all I write and post here to my beautiful, Angel Face, (her nickname from the time she was a baby). My love, until we meet again...may you dance like a ballerina, sing like an angel with those who awaited you and have all the cats your heart desires. Mommie misses you and loves you infinitely. 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

Back To Me

You caught my attention right from the start; It wasn't long before you captured my heart; Years later, we've been through so very much; We've not had it easy, we've had it quite rough; We've both been stubborn; there's no doubt; Until recently it seemed we could work it out; No matter the depth of my feelings for you, If you don't feel as deeply, there's not much I can do; There's...

I Shall Not Know

We had a connection from the start;  You stirred the embers in my heart; The longing I'd buried deep inside, I no longer felt the need to hide; But alas, we were not meant to be; so I gave you up and set you free; We both moved on and went our way; Tho' I've thought of you since that day; I've sat and pondered now and then, what would happen if we met again; The answer to this I shall...

Once Again

You were the sun that burned my skin because I trusted once again; Your words were like stars that fell from the sky,  Only you know how often you uttered a lie; With your smooth talk and promises, you had me believing; Though I realized too late you were only deceiving; But I can't really blame you; I should have seen from the start, You were only an actor, playing a part; When you...

A Different Spin

Broken heart yet again, same old lies with a different spin; Hopes and dreams kept on hold, after all that time it grew old; To think I'd loved you all those years, pushed aside all my fears; Of never having your love returned, another painful lesson learned.  ...

Recommended Read A Final Poem For Mommie

What is dying Mommie? Will all of me cease to be? Of all that I am and all that I've been, Is there nothing left of me? I believe in Heaven Mommie and think that's where I'll be. When you come Mommie, please try, oh try and find me.    I am not sure exactly when Katy wrote this heartbreaking poem and only found out about it today, (6/27/17). My mother discovered it in Katy's room about...

I feel you moving with me;  In my arms you slowly kiss me; In my ear, you softly tell me,  How much you really miss me; Then I reach for you, my sweet,  And find that you're not with me; It's just another dream of how it ought to be.   ...

A Birthday Tribute For My Angel Face

32 years ago today at exactly 5:16 pm God blessed me with a beautiful, healthy 6lb. 9oz, 19" long angel. I named my angel Katherine Elizabeth. She was called Katy from the beginning unless she was in trouble, (which wasn't often), then it was her full name. The look on her sweet face when she heard this was comical in the fact that she couldn't believe what she was hearing and would...

Now and Forever

I sat leaning against the stone pillar of the decades-old bridge, watching as the sun began to rise over the horizon, my legs dangling over the edge, my hand resting on the recently installed railing. No traffic would cross the bridge coming into the quiet backwater town that had been our home all our lives, and I concealed myself well enough not to be seen by any motorists leaving for...

I lie in bed at night, softly crying out your name; Because you touched my heart, I'll never be the same;  You held me very gently, with much tenderness and care, But you gave me only a moment of your love and life to share; Now that you are gone, forever from my life; I have no other choice, but to endure the pain and strife; I don't want any other; you are all I'd ever need; I wish...

When it's late, and you fall asleep, Know in your heart the thoughts I keep;  What I feel is strong and true, and my heart beats a rhythm just for you;  No matter what our future has in store, My love will be yours for evermore.           ...
