flash 55 - cleanliness

~click to make biggerer~

How neat and clean are your home and house?
Have you rid yourself of every villainous louse?

If someone has infected your heart with a germ,
leaving your soul sick and your mind infirm;

if your days are rife with unending strife:

you must purge anything evil and demonic
with an immeasurable gin and tonic.

Devour or Despair

Devour or Despair

a broken blade lies buried in my heart
twisted, torn and raw
tearing my love from me apart

so being not leastwise smart
I unveil my ugly flaw
and seek demonic revenge

with sharpened claw and reeking maw
my angel I avenge
while on my enemies’ bones I gnaw

* * *

It’s hard not to lash out when hurt or angry. Most times I keep myself in check. I’ve caused bloody jagged rips in the hearts of others in the past, but the pain to my own psyche seems to suggest that the deeds were not the balm I needed. Still, I wonder if the calm is a worthy goal.

* * *

Moaning Maid

a woman lamented alone
her king’s heart made of stone
he left her to cry
and eventually die
so she haunted him from his throne

* * *

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Flash 55 - Blurred Vision

This is my pup. You aren’t afraid of dogs, are you?

No, I like dogs. Well, the four-legged kind anyway. The two-legged kind are a bit scary.

You know the solution to that is to quit drinking before you can no longer see properly...

Oh, I’ve always been real good about not getting beer goggles.

Monday Madness

You won't find many pictures of me on the internet [for obvious reasons] but since I've decided to do things that make me feel uncomfortable, I am doing as mindlovemisery suggests and posting an unvarnished photo. I never wear make-up and rarely did even in my disco days. I wouldn't suggest making this image biggerer. :)

the less i know

sapphire skies bring death
unbelievable silence
while blue eyes laugh

fingertips tingle along nerve
endings in excitement

sharks keep moving
looking for their next
breath in water

comfort is over-rated
skinned knees scab
kisses make better

words weigh more
than sticks and stones

mindlovemisery - PROMPT 16: LIFE LESSON

a man was paring a pear
at the local county fair
he lopped off a piece
that fell into the grease
and ended as fried country fare

Flash 55 - My Stinger Is So Strong

~ click image to make biggerer ~

It hurt so much 
when you put your stinger in me - 
You made me jump and 
wiggle and move 
like I never moved before. 
You left your mark on me and 
I couldn’t forget you for days afterward. 
I finally accepted you and 
found you could not stand against 
a can of Raid.

Flash 55 - Afterthought

~click image to make biggerer ~

Terra had no idea things would turn out this
Way. If she had known, she’d have done things
In a different way with more care to details.
Like she might
Insist on an alibi with upstanding citizens
Going into the deal or she would consider
Having someone else wholly unrelated to her
Take him out

Rabbit, Rabbit - August

~click image to make biggerer ~

May the Universe recognize your majesty this month, 
bowing before your august figure and 
showering you with abundant carats of good things.
