Easier to say goodbye

Word of the day – Commit

Will you regret

This moment in time

You were brilliant,

I was fabulous

Together we were sublime

Was it real

Or an empty dream

Things were not

As things would seem

You walked away

It was too easy

you quit

It was easier to say goodbye

Than to give your heart

to me

and commit

A place of hope

 

A Place of Hope

 

How do you fill the void

Where in your heart

Love was blissfully employed

 

 

 

The home where we once shared

This place where as lovers we were together

Our hearts and minds momentarily paired

 

 

Don’t get too close though

What if

Teetering on the edge of a rocky cliff

 

 

We were scared

Petrified

why did we not allow our souls to be bared

 

 

It was easier to let go

Lose hope

Together we chose to no longer grow

 

 

We slipped down the cliffs jagged slope

Until all glimmer of hope

 

 

Was gone

Each day tinged a little with sadness

Feigning happiness with a mask of gladness

 

 

Travelling to a place of hope,

With my allies

Love and grace

Our journey to find a new happy place

Never lose hope

Forgive me, I’m turning into my mum 😍

Hi… I’m bewildered, befuddled, confused, confuddled. Yes a new word, a new word to explain and understand my prickly pickle

Lovely lady, J Blaide over a week ago you nominated me for the sunshine blogger award.

I was blown away, tickled pink, over the moon. Yes delightfully delighted. I set about my response in my mind. Life is crazy busy for me right now.

I moved that weekend, so it was a few days before I actually put pen to paper, or more to the point, finger to iPad.

I wrote, I answered my questions, I banged out 11 more question for my new nominations. I was on a roll.

All good. What’s the problem? Me. I’m the problem.

Firstly I think it is fairly obvious I’m new to WordPress. So my puzzlement begins. “Oh dear” I do not know many people on WordPress. 🤪 This is going to be a tad harder than first thought. That’s okay, that’s okay, I’ve got this!

Secondly a few days of spasmodic speed reading of blogs from people I do not know. How did I find these people? I searched a word and browsed what came up.

Okay I’m taking you back a few steps now. One of J Blaides questions in the sunshine blog nominations was,” do you view or read”. My answer was I view and look for a hook to grab me and then I devour.

JBlaide for the record I devoured your site. Awesome, love, funny, entertaining and fabulous. Congratulations wonderful lady. Very clever, you are. ❤️

Forward a few steps again, back to my spasmodic readings of unknown bloggers. Between my crazy week with work and planning a 3 week holiday, I read, searched, I loved.

All good, “ again, what’s her problem you ask”. Well if you can imagine my screwed up crying face. 😩😝😫😖

I can’t bloody workout how to put my nominated names into my blog.

Seriously I have been trying since last Friday. I can get the full site address name in, on checking other nominees, they only have the name. Grrrr. What am I doing wrong? I research. I learn about the LINK. Fabulous I’m on it. NUP.

I did get one up, yippee. However, on making my second link it replaced the first link. What the? 🤪 NO. NO. NO. NO. I had to walk away.

Now I will tell you the funniest part. You won’t believe me. No you won’t!

Do you know what I did when I left school? Computer science. Yes! I was in IT for many years. Are you laughing? I am. 😂😂😂😂

I pride myself on being very computer literate. So what has happened to me? Sadly, I may know this answer, I’m turning into my mum.. yep laughing again. 🤣

So please excuse my ignorance JBlaide. I so wanted to respond and be part of my new little WordPress world. If everyone, my fellow computer literate bloggers, can please bear with me, I will improve with practice or maybe after a few lessons. Perhaps from my kids. Hmmmm. It’s official, I have become my Mum. Asking my kids to help me. Hahha. I love it. Luckily she is one of the most adored and admirable people I have ever met, even if she can’t use a computer. I may possibly be quiet for a few weeks. Ask me why? I’m off on an adventure. 3 weeks of fun, sunshine& travel. I truly doubt I’ll get much time to write while I’m away but I will have plenty to write on my return. However, I will be reading all your blogs as my bedtime reading. I look forward to it.

Love and thanks

Xoxo

See me

I love this quote. I wrote the poem below at a time where this really resonated with me on a level I had not experienced before. I opened my iPad to Instagram and this was the first post that came up and it was like BANG

We don’t see each other

You are out on one limb

I am out on another

Worlds apart

How did we start

 

I do nothing right

I do, I say

You snap, you bite

 

A free spirit, yes I am, I am

You are black and white

Is our love real

Or is it just a sham

That I often weep

Do you really, give a damn

 

If I am black, then you are white

We see things differently

We sometimes fight

Are we really meant to be together

It seems we are bound,

With some magical tether

 

Your physical, yes it still pleases

Aesthetically, yes

your attractiveness, it teases

It’s what is happening in our souls

There is a missing connection

Empty holes

 

Let me go, and we shall see

Will my heart miss you

Or will it see me free

Maybe there is someone new

Someone who accepts the real me

A real love for you

 

You are holding on oh so tight

It could be time to cease fire

Stop the fight

Find our way or just release

Let go of inner turmoil

Find some peace

 

You will always be a love of mine

In my heart

A light will forever shine

I cry for you

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/sleeve/

#dailypost #saveouranimals #myheart Sleeve

I have a little ache

I’m holding it up my sleeve

I’m thinking of sharing it

Sharing it on this eve

 

I have a heart that breaks

Every single day

For another animal, another life

It is d day

with their life they pay

 

It seems I have no secret

Hiding up my sleeve

Something I have told you

An atrocity hard to conceive

 

It hurts me with a pain so deep

every day I weep and weep

 

For those without a voice

I wear my heart on my sleeve

For those forgotten

Everyday I grieve

 

I hear your cries, I see your pain

Deja vu

Everyday

I cry for you

 

God help you all

Forgive us humans

As we fall
