About Daisy

Biography

Daisy prefers to share herself in the third person, because she feels safer that way. She is generally a very shy and anti-social person, who can fool you into thinking she is confident and friendly when she has to. She's not, really. She suffers from severe depression and anxiety, and when she's got the brain power, she wishes she didn't.

She does love her friends, and being in their company, but she prefers to wander in solitude through both desolate, lonely places, and those twinkling with fairy dust, sparkling lights, and sweeties. She loves giggling and silliness, and one of her favourite phrases is that there should be "More Joy in the World". She regularly attempts to make this happen by being silly and then going to her Favouritest Place in All The Land - bed.

Interests:
A winding path leads Daisy's imagination through a magical exploration. Sometimes she allows her senses to wander the Realms of the Otherworld, touching the stars with dreamy delight. In fact, Daisy would like to be a star. She says, "Daisies are the shadows that stars leave us so we do not forget them when they go to bed." At other times, Daisy falls to a hard earth with a nasty bump. She tries to find the joy in life, be it through her dreams, her fantasies, her photography, or her fishing, even when her hope has faded. "And the deep, swirling fog rolled in, saturating the air and ground with mystic portents and whispered secrets. When the clouded mists of grey-pearl veils are lifted away, will sunshine and rainbows be the result?"

One never knows where Daisy might wander - it could be to the beach for tiddly fish hunting, or to the moors for contemplation. It might be to her most secret heart's desires that she keeps locked away from the Ordinary World, or to the shop of Frivolity, Glitter, Stripy Socks and Gingerbread Men. She likes to be dreamily pretentious, uttering phrases such as, "For it is only in our dreams that the True Magic is manifest; I sit, I dream, and Magic kisses Hope and brings it life." She also can't believe anybody might have even read this far!

Topic: Verification for Copyright Change?
Posted: 01 Sep 2017 09:50

Yes, but it's done. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_flower.gif" alt="flower">

Previously approved pieces that are sent in for reverification go to the top of the queue, not the bottom.

Thank you. <img src="/images/emoticons/love10.gif" alt="love10"> It's worth knowing for other authors, then, don't change your copyright after you share! And thank you for being around, too! <img src="/images/emoticons/love7.gif" alt="love7">

Hiya. I just shared a poem on Twitter, and then wanted to share it on Facefeck (but without the copyright information on that piece). However, in unticking the box, it's apparently sent it in for verification. So does that mean I now have to wait for a mod to come online and be free to re-verify it (at the end of their queue), despite there being no change to the text or picture? *sigh*

Sorry if I missed it, but is this a new feature? I like it. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_smile.gif" alt="icon_smile"> I think it's a helpful thing, and will allow readers to vote without fear of reprisals, and authors not to worry about who thought what or not.

Thank you. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_sunny.gif" alt="sunny">

Topic: Poets with Mental Illness Needed to Submit Poetry to Rattle magazine...
Posted: 05 Dec 2016 12:35



Thanks for the heads up! <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_sunny.gif" alt="sunny">s

I've never submitted anything before. If I do, do we just send one piece, or can we send a couple? *gathers up nerves*

Hey Miss Daisy, no problem here...it's what I do...

As far as number of submissions, it says "Send up to four poems at a time"...

Regular Submission Guidelines
http://www.rattle.com/submissions/guidelines/

And Good Luck to you...once you do start submitting stuff, you'll quickly realize that most things will get rejected...no worries though, just keep sending stuff out...if you keep at it, eventually you will get something published. And that's the way it works for everyone btw...

Thank you so much for the reply! I should have read more, sorry.

One of the reasons I haven't submitted anything before is that Rejection and I have a tendency to punch each other in the face (Rejection has a faster reflex than me). <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_sunny.gif" alt="sunny">

I don't remember what or when it was, but there has been a time or two when I'd wished for that option, so I'll add my tuppence in favour of the possibility, please. <img src="/images/emoticons/icon_sunny.gif" alt="sunny">

Editor's Pick V-Sign to the Sunshine, Stripy Socks and Gingas

This musing only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Sometimes I feel that the world is a graceless place. Well, alright, I always feel that. For me, every day is a task that I cannot look forward to.

Editor's Pick Blackthorn

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Face in the shadows Where eyes burn black candles And wax in the water Has armoured the lips, A soul freezes hell With the loneliness cruel, And the silence is lost Where the knife of noise slips. The buzz and the hum Of the jostling friends Who are not friends in truth, Nor are saviours of...

Editor's Pick Where Tears Reign

Here tears reign, And Self cannot be pulled together When Self is screaming, torn asunder, Where empty shell is welling up whilst Eyes of others roll Against the failings of this Selfish child, So called because She cannot rule what Others hide and stow away. 'Midst the back streets of her mind, Her common sense is raging cruel To lash her weakness, Scorn self-pity And loathe the drama...

The sun does not set on This face of mine, Nor soar on wings of fire to me, Nor rush to greet me, Kiss me, leave me, Nor burn and scorch the skin from me. It is I who moves away Withdrawn From light and life All blazing bright and Cloistered in My rising run, The weight of spirit Left behind. In darkness seeps the weeping soul, The river dry yet Flowing slow, Still, from diamond drops I...

Recommended Read An Ode to a Sad Existence

I wished I was a flower underneath a great big tree, But then a dog would come along and shower me with wee. I wished I was a chestnut tree with lots of lovely conkers, But kids would come and nick my nuts and that would drive me bonkers. So I wished I was a schoolie living in the ocean seas, But a fisherman would catch me and then cook me with some peas. So I wished I was a beer that was...

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Languishing dreams where a heart grows still, Slowing tick of the clock drives distraction to Death's resurrection in Grey of the day Where the sun has lost hope and The curtains are drawn. Here I lie in the dark with the monsters of crowds, Where the gibber and growl of the wraiths howl...

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Smears of glowering grey Roll smudged across the violet sky, Dusk sinking to Twilight sinking to Star-studded velvet Roiling night. A whispered curse is a wraith in the pit, Phantasms flying across the soul Where emptiness weeps And the echoes of pain And the twisted limbs of The fallen oak lie....

This poem only available on Stories Space. If you are reading it elsewhere, it has been stolen. Blue so black, A velvet sweep away to deeper shadows empty; Points of diamond ice prick splendour Into this thin, still-born air. Breath is wreathed around my face, Silver sinking, mouth to ground; A glittering mist of moisture's stasis Beads the frozen earth with glass. Silence, heavy, Hope...
