Shall I cower in the face of Darkness?
Let it take me by the hand into its bosom
Fall victim as the ones that have gone before
As it woos me like prey being drawn by the hunter
I am unable to be pulled back from its clutches anymore
They all say, “You must fight harder,” but my strength is gone
Darkness shall be my captor and I will be in perfect peace at last©
Is happiness an illusion, just a pure delusion?
Cards in the hand of a master, going faster and faster
Playing tricks on the masses, as time passes
Disappearing into smoke, leaving the crowd to choke
Fooled again by the trickster, his hands move quicker
So again this joy from me is gone, yet I live on
Causing my heart to disappear, gone forever I do fear
Fool me once shame on me, will I ever be free?
He waves a wand, then everything is all gone
Leaving us in wonderment, as the final curtain is rent
Is happiness an illusion, just pure confusion?
Back to the start we begin, leaving me to wonder again©

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©
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©
An enemy lurks and waits, pacing outside my gates
His battle plan is to destroy, but he offers up a ploy
Let’s sign a treaty, a pact, his objective is to distract
Call to battle, sound thee alarm, can’t allow to harm
To conquer this and succeed, strength’s what I need
Hold my ground, my sword, weakness I can’t afford
Who knows how long he’ll tarry, my great adversary
Blackness in his big hand, attempts to take my land
I must not give in but push back, courage can’t lack
If he was allowed to succeed, plundering with greed
Mind and body would be a loss, destined to be chaos
Depression is my opponent, must overcome, own it©
“Chaos is merely order waiting to be deciphered.”
― José Saramago, The Double
In a world full of chaos I am drawn to order and straight lines. They bring me a sense of peace and happiness. Perhaps it is because with life around me going every which way; the hustle and bustle of people is enough at times to make me withdraw into my anxiety. I look for things that are neat, organized and precise. To capture these things in a photo is amazing and gives me great pleasure. ~Mac

What kind of word is nattyWordPress? Argh!!
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©
