Down, Down, Down

Leaf-In-Water-Wallpaper-1024x640

The rain falls onto my window pane 
Painting pretty pictures in lines and droplets
See it fall and swirl around the drain
Then capturing a green leaf that is in its path

I imagine a voyage upon this leaf
As the water, it pulls me down, down, down
Where will I end up or how brief?
It doesn’t matter, as I feel the water take me

Close my eyes as I feel it drift away
Unaware of the danger that’s lurking ahead
All I know, I want to get away today
I will deal with the reality of life tomorrow©

My Message

message-in-a-bottle-wallpaper

Put my emotions in a bottle and set them free at sea

They washed onto the shore and you found them for me

You released me from my burden, handled with so much care

But realized it wasn’t healthy to keep my feeling locked up in there

Assured me that it was safe, a place that I was free to let my emotions go

Filled with apprehension, yet a freeing sence indeed, as I saw my feelings flow©

No Longer A Whole #2

No Longer A Whole #1

Two halves of me don’t total one

I know longer have a sum

Tallied parts, I’m still not whole

Lost and have no control

Look each day but don’t equal

To check again is needful

Hope somewhere along the way

That I will add up one day©

No Longer A Whole

elitefon.ru_27964

There’s a big hole in my heart, a piece that is gone
Didn’t realize it was missing, don’t know how long
I found it one day, it was on the floor broke in two
Saw a name on this piece, it was signed out to you

I gave you this part, you forgot that you loaned it
Tattered, bruised…Did you realize you owned it?
Drowned out my cries, forsaken and so hopeless
Lost to the sadness and will never feel wholeness

Light is fading from my eyes, see they are muted
Emotion is not here anymore, I have been looted
Coldness has crept in, and like a thief it is taking
And is just leaving behind a deep, painful aching

Searching for comfort, something to fill the void
Not sure I’ll find it, before my heart is destroyed
So I wander this life, not sure what I will look for
But I am so certain, don’t want to hurt any more©

Skin Deep

What kind of word is nattyWordPress? Argh!! 

o-TEEN-GIRL-LOOKING-IN-MIRROR-facebook

I used a thesaurus and found out it means some such thing about looks. Do tell me UK friends, is this word your doing? I suppose if I was dapper, dashing or dainty it would be a great adverb. But I quite hate it altogether! Change one letter and you spell nasty and that is all I can think of. Blah! 

So in an effort to go on with writing for this word of the day- here’s a go at it!

There once was a man so dapper, but he was only a good napper
And a maiden of considerable looks, but she only could read books
But life isn’t all about fashions, you should also follow your passions
So if you are tempted to be vain, remember it’s okay to be plain©

Imagine This

065b299139eadd5fbfa5f8308c0ec8a5

When life gets too hard I go to my special place
I look deep within this imaginary space

Time has no meaning and we walk up-side-down
There are no mirrors and no one can frown

Tears come only from laughing and giggling too
And most of the time that is all that we do

Who are the “We” I refer to, you want to know? 
Well, this is only where the most special go

Often they’re found in the darkest, ugliest parts
But they have the most beautiful hearts

Using their minds they create amazing dreams
There is nothing more lovely, or so it seems

Once in a while this monster will try to get in
But we put up a fight, won’t let him win

He knocks on the doors and tears at our walls
Says unkind things, to the weakest he calls

He has lots of  names, his heart black with deceit
But the one I fear most, the one I can’t beat

This voice calls to me often, attempting to lure me
Depressions its name, not sure I’ll ever be free©

Living Is A Choice~Birthday Reflections

Birth is not a choice we get to make, we are brought into this world 
Some simply come into this life to exist only for the sake of existing
Others will choose to make this world a better place, living it in full
How we embrace our course is up to us, no one can decide but you
Will you elect to be a person who conquers the world each day here?
Touching the lives of those you come into contact with, uplifting them
Bring light to the dark, laughter to the sad, love to the broken-hearted
Looking at the world, see the good and the beautiful, embracing it all
Birth is not a choice we get to make, but choosing to live is one we make daily!

Today is my birthday, and as I reflect on life and how many ups and downs that it brings. One thing that I have come to realize is that every day is a choice. Will I choose to get up and live life, making the best of every circumstance that I face? Life throws many things at us, it is how we react to them that can make or break us. So as I go into another year of life, I will again choose to keep living. It is a conscious decision, one that is not always the easier path. In fact, really never easier. But, I know that through this life, I will have an impact and I will make a difference. These are things that I strive for, I hope to obtain. What will you do with the life you have been given? I hope that you will shine on! ©
