You

images-4

you hold me
in that space where there is safety
always
I count your love on pebbled beaches
my footsteps unsure
you balance me
I count your love on mountain ledges
huddled
scared of my surroundings
your hands reach out
I drift at times unknowing
you ground me
no doors that you won’t open
I trust
we harmonise
your voice
is love on my pillow

Unfaithful

I’m sure if I stared hard enough
passed Klein pin stripes
and ironed shirt
buttons peeled, the tie removed
a part – minute
infinitesimal in fact
gives a damn, some remorse
you were a cat on heat
you strayed

I
shudder

insignificant mumblings
spilled from a soiled mouth
that has been plunged
by her tongue
spitting out apologies
her lips not sweet as mine
gullible me
you hoped

I
laugh

in your chest
chambers, ventricles
the muscle
pumping blood maintains
a continuous beat
allows you to draw breath
together with wetted
lungs, yet your
emotions had run dry
for us

I
wonder

was there a forever after
as we walked hand in hand
‘I love you’ thrown my way
to satiate my insecurity
but you required more
lust over love, afternoon delights
of tasting
a different skin – a different salt
tired of the old – in with the new

I
cringe

take your pathetic and your
meaningless excuses
of a night
where booze imprisoned
your thoughts of me
unrealistic expectations
what you thought you needed
as you rode high on this harlot
of your dreams
it was only the once…?

 

goodbye

Purely Fiction!

Saturday Centus Wk 148 Perhaps

Saturday Centus Week 148  – The prompt this week is:   “Without you around, I sleep like a baby” 108 words including the 5 in the Title.

Perhaps because there is no snoring
no sniffling, moaning, grumbling
perhaps there is no waking me as you
get up for the loo
perhaps I am not woken from sheets
or doona being dragged off me
or talking in your sleep as you
sometimes do
yes
without you around I sleep like a baby
I wake in the morning quite refreshed
but I would miss the noises that you
make the little disturbances throughout
the night
for I know that this way you
are next to me
your body next to mine and
I’d rather have that and a restless
sleep
than be sleeping all alone

Total random rambling

I sit here at my desk in the study…it is 1.30am…yes I should be in bed and dreaming of winning the lottery…I would if I remembered to buy a ticket… or dancing across fields of green into the arms of the man I love..but I’m not…I’m listening to a compilation CD of songs..well of course mumsy it would be songs …you wouldn’t be listening to the ABC news broadcast at this hour (or any hour) now would you… punctuation will be pretty much non existant.. because well frankly I don’t want to do full stops and commas and question marks…ok a couple may slip in…so I use dots…(meditating mummy loves dots)..the 1st song is unchained melody..come on girls…because I dont think the boys would like this one…or be reading this for that matter…but us girls do..doesn’t it conjure up the most beautiful fuzzy feeling…it doesn’t (oops a ? slipped in)..well I tried…

this is a ramble post..as that is what my name is..and every now and then I break out of my make sense writing and do one of these…of course they have to be read quickly…why…because they would seem so ridiculous if you read them slow…anyway I digress…unchained melody…don’t you just want your husband….partner…boyfriend..friend with benefits? (oops another ? )…to be cusping (is that a word..where’s my dictionary) your face in his hands? (oops another one)…looking longingly into your eyes…telling you that you are the most beautiful creature that walked this earth…you don’t? (oops) what’s wrong with you?? (heavens more than I thought slipping in here)….

anyway where was I…have you gone away yet…gotten a drink…saying what is the point of this…for new followers I am sorry…I apologise for this seemingly terrible random nonsensical post…but this is me..pure and simple…so bear with me…I am trying to write whatever is going through my head and when I write and at this hour..well this is as good as it’s going to get (oops I did a ‘)

maybe I’m overtired..but I don’t feel it (punctuation has emerged …well it’s hard not to do)…anyway where was I…oh yes cusping..slasping…that bit…but moving on..oops I wrote slasping…what the dickens is that..I’m not correcting..it looks fine…

ok away from the bit if you have a loved one that does the clasping or slasping…I have had my moments in life without a companion by my side…and I survived…it can be tough but it’s do-able…it’s a time that all us females need to find ourselves…to take control of what we really want in a partner…to find who we are and what we want from life…and how to learn from our past mistakes…or from our past in general…and sometimes it may take a little longer than what we are hoping for…it’s not that you will never find anyone…but mr or ms right will come along…you will be glad that you had waited…in fact you aren’t really waiting..you are being sure that the next person that enters your life will be the right one…you are not ugly…you are not nasty…you are not too thin…or too fat.. or controlling…or possessive…you are none of those things…you are you…

and when your person comes along…you will see that…and they will want you for you…and be happy with who you are…so never change for anyone…I tried and it didn’t work…now I am me…and I was lucky enough to find someone who is happy with that..he is now a blog widower…but that’s ok (oops a final ‘) he’s happy I have a hobby….

its now 2am and I shall go to bed and dream

this was so random….
