#NaNoWriMo

I have not been around recently for many reasons.  The main one is that I was preparing and beginning to participate in the #NaNoWriMo challenge! I was at the beginning of writing a fantasy novel and wanted that extra incentive to get it done or at least on the road to being done.  Knowing that you don’t always reach the finality of the book in this challenge, I knew I could at least get that push and “umph” to get it going and hopefully almost if not completely written by the end of November!!

Because of other things going on at the end of October and the beginning of this month I am now really going to be ducking into my writer’s cave and diving into my writing.  50,000 words by the end of November is no small feat so wish me luck and keep on being great the way you are!!!

Castle Home in the Sky

She had been searching for so long.  Only finding what she was looking for in her dreams.  Dressed in a beautiful flowing gown she stood on the cliff.  Looking toward her home.  Held in the clouds by anchors to who-knows-where.  Her beautiful castle in the sky.  Waterfalls cascading into space and time.  Birds flying over head, singing for her to come home.  As she stepped forward, a bridge appeared in mid-air and she slowly headed to her castle home in the sky.

What Can I Be Looking For?

What can I be looking for?

Through the mists of my soul

I take a walk through the fog

Wondering and waiting

For what I do not know

Stepping through the forest

The only light from the moonlight overhead

Sharing it’s mystical impression

Feeling so unreal in it’s perception

I am searching for something or someone

Not sure why or what for

But I continue to move on and glide through

Hoping beyond hope to understand

What can I be looking for?

Oh When It Rains

041419

When going through a point in separation and divorce, I was deep in myself and trying to basically hide from the world, family, everyone and everything.  I didn’t know how to keep the things I was going through to myself ,what I was dealing with, so I closed down because I didn’t want to pull everyone into my problems.  Especially my kids.  It was not the right thing to do because I ended up hurting those I love instead of protecting them and keeping them out of things.

So it started by me pulling away from everyone.  My parents, my boys and my friends.  There were only a couple of people I would share things with and still felt guilty doing that.  Those I confided in, my family did not understand why, but I felt by having someone on the outside, they would see things better than I or family could.

At one point I freaked and ran.  I couldn’t deal with the way things were going and the way I felt pressured from every angle to decide and act on what I was going to do.  It scared and petrified me because of the change I knew I needed to make. That action I took (by running) really knocked my family for a loop, not only myself, and hurt them as well.  This I am not proud of and have been trying to make up for since.

So yes, when they say, “When it rains, it pours”, it means so much more than the actual downpour of rain.  😉

Anyway, after that I vowed to not do it again. I have learned to deal with things, talk about things I am going through with my counselor and those I love.  As a matter of fact, I turned another corner by opening up about things that have been going on recently with my mom, sister and niece.  I have also written a letter to my boys to share with them, when I am able to be right there with them, so I can answer any questions they might have.  Hopefully I can share this with them very soon.

When It Rains It Pours, Case In Point!

The Love That Used to Fill My Heart

 

IMG_4449

The love that used to fill my heart

Is now just a lasting part

Of the past that have fond memories

For the way it all used to be

The first real love that filled me up

That I always thought would windup

My every joy and happiness blessed

I really never would have guessed

There would be a break in my life

To make me feel full of strife

But now I must move on

To other joys and loves beyond

This point I find myself now

For happiness to make I vow

To continue to learn and prosper

And never harvest or foster

The hurt I have felt up to this point

Yet to feel and anoint

Those around me with my joy

And never ever to destroy

**********************************************************************

I feel this is kind of corny but it is basically what I have been feeling and wanted to get out for now.

Vicious

fullsizeoutput_4a94.jpeg

Vicious

How do you control a Vicious person?

One that is wild and uncontrollable

That has no remorse for what they do

No sorrow or feelings for another human being

What do you do to stop a person such as this?

When the person is so Vicious they hurt someone

Hurt them with words and actions so brutally

That a person thinks all they can do is make themselves disappear

To hide from the world in fear that the hurt will continue if they don’t

How do you make it stop?

How do you make a Vicious, cruel person stop harming?

And turn them to a humane, remorseful, caring being

How?
