“What the hell am I doing here, I don’t belong here”…

Behind the façade…

The wizard stands…

Dazzling the world…

With his magic hands…

Delighting the crowds…

Using charm and sorcery…

Allowing them to access…

And indulge his fantasy…

As they gasp in wonder…

At what their eyes see…

Someone so powerful…

The man he wants to be…

Projecting a version…

How he wants to appear…

But in cold reality…

He is nowhere near…

Just a simple fairy tale…

That was never real…

He never really existed…

It’s all so surreal…

Because it’s all a show…

And if they only knew…

That behind the curtain…

Lay the real truth…

A fake and a fraud…

Hidden behind a mask…

Where his secrets reside…

And he can safely bask…

Within mirrors of smoke…

Protected by an illusion…

That deflects any notion…

And causes such confusion…

As this magician speaks…

Mixing words with voodoo…

Perfecting misdirection…

So no one can see through…

And reveal him for what he is…

Because they’d soon discover…

That behind his thin disguise…

He’s a creep like no other…

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

“I’ve given all I can, It’s not enough”…

Holding onto the gun…

Blue steel in his eyes…

His finger on the trigger…

Can’t escape from his disguise…

So deep under cover…

Into another life he was hurled…

This was always likely to happen…

In this darkened underworld…

His mission was out of sight…

He became a walking ghost…

Nobody knows his identity…

Known only as Deep Throat…

He had to infiltrate them…

Gain their trust and their respect…

Whilst slowly gathering information…

Then feeding back the intellect…

But now he stands here ready…

The loaded gun is in his hand…

Pointing at an innocent victim…

Who could never understand…

That he simply has to do this…

To prove to them he’s real…

This man’s collateral damage…

It all seems so fucking surreal…

But there is a higher purpose…

So much more at stake…

And he has to pull the trigger…

Even though it’s a Karma mistake…

It’s all part of his business…

Even the removal of a soul…

So many more before this…

It’s how he has to roll…

But now he has to focus…

Complete this transactional task…

He stands and pulls the trigger…

The victim’s blood adds to his mask…

He sees the men stood smiling…

Knows this initiation is complete…

They will all begin to trust him…

As he plots their downfall and defeat…
