i have had questions about why i cleared out my "friend comment" area... i just needed a fresh start. i am planning to keep it empty for a while. leave your pictures. i love your pictures. but i am going to clean out every couple of days for a while. it is up to you whether that hurts your feelings or not. if so, i am very sorry. message me privately and let's talk about it.
"You've got to have something to eat and a little love in your life. Everything goes smack back to that." - Billie Holiday
i did not sleep at all last night so if i act crazy feel free to tell me to step away from the computer.
the night holds on
to the dark warm.
i hear doves cooing softly in the trees.
their gray tones of peace and welcome
call my heart to be grateful.
i cleaned the "comment" house, showered, put on the scent of jasmine and my virginal pink lace panties. sigh some days you just have to be thankful for yourself.
Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames. - Rumi
i will be enough.
but not today.
“A flower blossoms for its own joy.” ― Oscar Wilde
“Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?” ― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
“Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”
there are no words beyond
"you will never be enough.
let me die
and sail beyond your reach."
so you did
and left debris
that returns periodically
to brush against my heart.
the wounds never heal.
the words are never unsaid
and remain prophetic.
yes i know this is a downer... but this week marks the 14th anniversary of my husband deciding he would rather be dead than live with me. i think i will be away for a while.
have fun and carry on!
my new poem "enchantment" has been awarded a recommended read! thank you saga!!!

To feel beautifully alive, read something beautiful, always apprehend in the flow of language the sudden flash of poetry ― Gaston Bachelard
haiku for the hump day
you said my soft voice
was healing in some sweet way.
your words are balm too.
slide your fingers
across my skin silk.
that breathy moan
is just for you.
"stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. stop waiting. this is it. it's here and you'd better decide to enjoy it or you are going to be miserable, wherever you go for the rest of your life, forever." ~ lev grossman, the magicians
she had a certain exhalation of surrender about her, as if she was a door waiting to be pushed open; but it was the darkness beyond that held me. ~ john fowles, the magus
