heart

he is once worn
and twice shed
she brings him out of the cabinet
on special occasions
like fine china
but he never breaks
he is just what she needs
never takes more
than she will give
she threads his needle
in the dark night
punches right through him
and leaves before the
stitches have healed
he sews his fragile heart
to his shirtsleeves
hers for the taking
but she will wrap it up
in her white apathy
and watch it bleed away

“It’s Halloween, on the street, you came looking for me”…

Hubble bubble,
toil and trouble…

They hauled her from,
a pile of rubble…

Her broken body,
no longer breathing…

Covered in dust and
wounds still bleeding…

For the longest time,
she’d been missing…

Disappeared suddenly,
after reminiscing…

About a man she met,
at a party long ago…

An opportunity missed,
at least she thought so…

She knew his name and
where he came from…

He’d charmed and entranced,
forced her heart to succumb…

And branded his face,
in the forefront of her mind…

Before one day deciding,
that she’d try to find…

The one who wove a spell,
upon her imagination…

And accepting the risk,
of total deflation…

But when she saw him,
she instantly knew…

That she had been,
such an utter fool…

As he walked hand in hand,
with a stunning goddess…

And in her minds comparison,
she was such a mess…

So she fled the city,
in a lonely taxi tide…

With her heart aching,
she sat in the back and cried…

But as the bright city lights,
began to fade into darkness…

The driver stopped and
ignored all her tearful protests…

Hubble bubble,
toil and trouble…

They hauled her slaughtered body,
from a pile of rubble…

“There’s still a little bit of your taste in my mouth”…

  • Careful what you wish for…
  • As wishes do come true…
  • Never speak of the one you adore…
  • Nothing good comes from this voodoo…
  • Once the Devil hears it…
  • Never again can it be taken back…
  • Beware he doesn’t make you admit…
  • All you desire, all that is Black…
  • Longing for the stunning, the one with mystical eyes…
  • Lust in your heart, will only lead to your demise…

“We may lose and we may win”…

So, in the midst of a busy week that has thrown up more questions than answers on a personal matter, this blog was nominated for an award. Nominated twice actually, which really made me smile and was quite humbling.

It is not the first time; you may remember that previously, the lovely Nina from http://wordsthatflowlikewater.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/inspiring-the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/  Nominated this blog for the “Very Inspiring Blog” award – which was really nice of her.

This achievement has now been followed up by both Richard from http://richardankerswrites.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ and Christine from http://crissyb315.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ nominating this blog for the “Versatile blogger award”.  Which again, is really nice and I am truly humbled.

Both these awards come with things that need to be done and I have to admit, I am pretty poor at these – however, the fact that these awards come from wordpress peers does mean a lot and whilst I have little of interest about myself to do any sort of list, I do feel the need to spread the word of others blogs.

The below are 10 blogs that I read and follow – and I would encourage you to try them out for size – these are just a snapshot as I follow a huge amount – so if your blog isn’t below, it is not reflection on you – more an opportunity.

Please leave a comment and let people know where they can find you – this could be an opportunity for all of us to build up our wordpress base? Not sure if this will even work, but don’t be shy – we all want to be read – even if we do not think what we produce is worth reading!

So, here is a snapshot in addition to the 3 above and in no order:

So, a song to leave this ramble – I watched an Eagles documentary last night and really enjoyed it, so have a few tunes floating round in my head – this one is a message for the weekend – “Take it easy” – no more words needed – well, unless you wish to comment!

Enjoy
