At The End Of Time

We all dream of the end. The big house, and two cars, the dog, and two children running in the yard. Our partner beside us lounging on the veranda, watching the movie unfold before us. We want to skip the scanning, the awkward texts, the […]

*On Defrost*

*On Defrost*

I’m sorry for breaking you…
The clock stopped going toc.
We stared at the big orange sign,
signifying the distance to the edge.
I was hurt and so were you
but after the end, I pulled through.
Now I’m hearing the riddim again,
and you’re still ice cold.

Poetry 101 Rehab: Thaw.

50 Word Story

50 Word Story

Walking down the road, all alone, embracing the warmth of the setting sun, she kept kicking the stone. She knew there was no such thing as luck when she heard thunder crackle in the distance. Speeding up her stroll, she surveyed the surroundings, and soon enough she was home. It’s […]

Beauty

Beauty by definition is in the
eye of the beholder, you’re “be-you-tiful”
Beauty, the reflection in the mirror.
Beauty, that smile, that emanates joy.
Beauty, you are blinded by love.
Beauty is the kindness one bears.
Beauty is seeing light every morning.
Beauty is God’s creation, by nature,
stuck in shock, by the beauty.
Life, you, me, that is beauty.

Thank you Krissy for tagging me to share Beauty with the world.

My favourite beauty quote is

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

  Coco Chanel

P.S. I had to search for a beauty quote lol I didn’t have one on hand 😛

You're Invited…. to be HAPPY!

wow *clicks link to see what this is about* I love being happy :3

Am I wrong

Am I wrong

Is my gut right?
or, is my mind right?
or is it my heart, that’s right?
You’d think two would be at war.
Well you’re wrong.
My whole being is at war,
just for you…
If you know the answer,
please do share
because my body is in turmoil,
all because I care.

Poetry 101 Rehab

The prompt: Right.
