In the after-calm I hold her close, a rose flush fills her cheeks. Her lips look anxious & quiver, she sights the words she seeks. She asks “Am I still beautiful despite each every scar?” I reply “Yes, you are lovely just the way you are”. Words can be just that – as false as … More Sweetest Scars
I don’t believe benevolent beings look down on all we do. I don’t believe happy endings from Fairy Tales come true. I don’t believe we’re stronger from suffering we’ve been through. But babe, believe me when I tell it true that I believe in you. Though I don’t believe in Angels watching over us from … More I Believe
Well, when his eyes look upon her his mouth tells her “I adore”. His heart beating in his chest as it has never beat before. It’s a little like the last time but with that little bit more. In love for the first time (once again). Well, when his lips met with hers, came together … More First Time (Once again)
Condition: Used, confused, abused but beats strong still – will not fail. Will anybody buy his hurting heart? Reduced in our weary winter sale. And as for former owners, well, yes, he has had one or two. Yet he has never loved anybody before the way that he will love you. Prices reduced for a … More Heart For Sale
Don’t usually do intros prior to posting my poetry or stories but this time I’ll make an exception.

His long limp locks were greasy, his shuffling scuffed shoes were black. It’s hard to play it cool & breezy when you’re carrying a demon on your back. She still screams inside his head, hurt by those you love the most. Though their love life’s long dead he still feels fearful of her ghost. In … More Ghost of a Chance

We were also challenged to use all 10 if we could, so I did. So tired today. Running on empty – reckon … More APED #27 – Loneliness, Longing & Love.
She stands serenely on the same sandy shore, her beauty still puts the sun to shame. Smiles, seemingly says “Hope some more”, so shall we pretend that Hope’s her name? Hope still says that the sun hasn’t set, laughter lets me know there’s a chance. Soft skin still remembers me, won’t forget, the wind in her hair … More Sand, Sea & Hope For Me
Another APED challenge. This time we were given an image as our inspiration: Image Source: Ship Mary L. Cushing by William G. Yorke (via Wikimedia Commons) With the poem below, I tried to write the line to give the impression of the waves instead of them being a fixed length. I also used two distinct … More APED #18 – Carry Me Home
It was an accident; I felt it in spite of me. You had made it crystal clear that “we” would never be. Still when we collided, I felt it tear me apart and a piece of your shrapnel lodged deep into my heart. I didn’t mean to love you; said I’d just be a friend. … More After the Accident: What Now?
