And the when Is it not the very question itself That marks the beginning of yet another end.         Prompt: Measure Advertisements Continue reading Short is the way


Dreams and Tales

I don’t want to believe in fairy tales again. Happy endings are but far away fantasies; Loving is a quickly fading memory; And hoping brings nothing but heartbreak. Until you… Surely a spell has been cast When our eyes held each other’s glance. For though fate has been unkind, Love was once again defined; Perhaps for the last time. Rekindling life itself, The waking has exceeded the dreaming. A silent heart’s wish granted Through each kiss – true love’s bliss. Continue reading Dreams and Tales


Life’s companion named Death

     Every so often I’d dream about being in an unfamiliar cemetery – like the cemetery invites me as a forgotten friend. There is one grave that I keep seeing each time and it always has such freshly cut lavender. The marriage of the lavender and the grave was so natural it was as if the grave birthed its own symbol of a fruitful and purposeful life lived. Continue reading “Life’s companion named Death”


Rumor has it

   You can’t do that! That can’t possibly be true! Sure we’re just a tiny bit full of your love tales and sweet romantic episodes but if your perfect match that we all secretly (okay, not so secretly) envy and want for our own were to end, what do we have to look forward to??

   Sure I may be over-reacting, or so you say, but please get your act straight and get back together already. We all know that you can’t keep yourselves away from each other. I think it is just one of those laws of nature. Continue reading “Rumor has it”


Maybe If then Perhaps

Maybe, just maybe
if I stare long enough into your eyes
I will see myself the way you see me
and perhaps I could love my self as much as you love me

If I continue to listen to your voice
as you sing and tell stories
maybe I will hear it
the echo of that which spurs you
to live life so fully Continue reading “Maybe If then Perhaps”


Adventure of a Lifetime

Daily Prompt: Too Big To Fail Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).

   I want to go on an adventure. Not just any adventure, I mean the biggest adventure of my life comparable to the great ones by J.R.R Tolkien or C.S. Lewis or Philip Pullman – anywhere that goes beyond the realm of this physical world. Perhaps even across time and space as the legendary Doctor does.

But against

b1ue5ky / / CC BY-NC-SA I love you against the world We are a match we made for each other We love at our own home Inside our hearts and our mind We are each other’s reprieve and respite Against the chains outside That the rest call Freedom It is a sad truth that love, including everything else human and personal, has become a social construct; or perhaps it has always been this way. Being able to define, in broad strokes, what conventional love is and being able to provide instances of its stark negative that is unconventional love … Continue reading But against
