WOD
He caused a constitutional crisis
Raised legal,political and moral objections
She was considered unsuitable as she had two failed marriages
Edward declared his love for Wallis Simpson
And abdicated from the throne.

Can you keep a secret
Can you really not tell
Can you keep a secret
Keep it very well
Friends come round,they gossip and temptation calls
Can you keep it under wraps
And not"in these four walls"
Can you really be trusted
Are your lips really sealed
Nothing would you reveal
Can you keep a secret?

My perfect weekend
Wake up late
Read a book
Do a bit of knitting
Take a walk with the dog
Do a bit of sitting
Eat snacking food
Dream a lot
Write a poem or two
That's all I would do

Third entry
Why doesn't she leave him
I wouldn't put up with that
Why does she let him hit her
I'd give him one back
He wouldn't be overwhelming to me
I hit him with a pan in the darkness when he was asleep
Why doesn't she call the police
I'd have him arrested
A night in a cell would cool him down
Doesn't she know how to look after a man
What is she doing wrong
He earns all the money
Surely he can go out for a drink
I bet she nags him
If she nagged me I'd smack her one
He's a vicious bugger I wouldn't put up with that
Hope she doesn't come round me for help
I don't want any bother
Do you believe her when she said she walked into the door
Has she seen her reflection in the...

I hold the mask of the face you first showed me
Caring, attentive,considerate
I fell for the man who wore that mask
But eventually the mask fell away
And the real you showed through
Your darkness and your vicious temper overwhelm me
What do you see when you look in the mirror
What reflection looks back at you
The caring,considerate man
Or the real you

Poetry
Dawn Chorus

Good morning my dear how are you
Very well comes the reply

Watch out , watch out , the blackbird shouts
Next doors cat has been let out
Breakfast hunter is on its way

Have you been down to 25
The feeders have been filled
Sunflower seeds and meal worms
Number 32 has also got Trill

Harold's not got up yet
Last night he was very merry
27 left out stale fruit cake
I think she'd soaked it in sherry
Harold didn't realise as he partook his fill
With the hangover he's got this morning
I think today he'll be sticking to Trill

Oh quick let's get a move on
That boring pigeons coming
I wouldn't mind but he's very loud
with his constant coo coo cooing
He never changes pitch or ton...

But I told him there were no chances
He might have been burning hot

I wet my bed when I hear him shouting at my My!m,I know he'll shout at me but I can't help it when I hear him shouting at my Mum.
I curl up tight in a ball and put my head under the pillow ,but it doesn't stop me hearing him hitting her
I put my fingers in my ears when my Mum cries,but it makes me mad because why does she cry when she knows it makes him even madder and he tells her to shut up.
I get tired at school,my teacher tells me not to stay up late playing on my computer. I can't tell her I haven't got one cos my Dad smashed it last time he got mad.
My classmates don't want to play with me ,they say I smell of wee. I can't tell them its because my Dad says ...

"Who do you believe,me or her" I asked Dave ,my boss
Dave stood by my desk and looked first at Juliet and then me.
His face looked grey and haggard ,his hair stood on end and was a mess from him running his hands through it.
"I don't know who or what to believe anymore" he said tiredly.
Juliet responded quickly, "Dave,its clear cut,she made the mistake,the proof is on her computer,what more evidence do you want".
Dave couldn't meet my eye,he looked down at the desk.
" I'm sorry Anna he started to say
I didn't wait to hear the rest,I picked up my bag and walked to the door.
Juliet raised an eyebrow and smiled at me as I passed her by.
I turned to face her,she took a step back ,alarm flaring in...

I know I shouldn't question Lord
I know I shouldn't ask why
I know I should trust your path for us Lord
But the mountain seems too high

I know I shouldn't question Lord
I know I shouldn't compare
I know I should trust in you Lord
And trust you will be there

The path seems so hard Lord
I have so many fears
Are you doing it to test me Lord
I've already shed so many tears

Haven't we been through enough Lord
What lesson do you want me to learn
I've said so many prayers Lord
Haven't you heard

I know I shouldn't question Lord
I know I shouldn't ask why
I know I should have faith Lord
But can you tell me why

It hurts so much and I don't know why we have been chosen to go through this again

Hey you,I'm talking to you
Don't turn your head away from me you bitch
Don't you know who I am
I'm stigma with a capital S
What do you want to be bothered with them for with their claptrap words
HOPE -its bull**** what they talk about
I'll give you hope - hope I don't thump you one tonight if my dinner isn't on the table when I come home and this time the plate had better not be cold

BELIEVE - believe what? I'm the one you believe. Believe me when I tell you you are ugly and useless,oh and did I forget to mention fat
Look in the mirror and see then you will know and believe.
Believe me when I tell you you need me. You haven't got anything of your own I pro...

Why do you judge when you have no idea what my life is like
Do you believe I "ask for it,I deserve it,I must be doing something wrong"
People like you create stigma,people like you perpetuate misunderstanding
People like you "don't want to get involved"
People like you turn the other way
You don't try to understand the fear I live with
The feeling I have that there is no hope
You look on the surface and see what he wants you to believe
Look into my eyes and see what's really happening
Take a deep breathe when you are near my children and smell their fear
It isn't anger management he needs for he can control his anger
He just chooses when and where he directs it
Believe me...

Despite what he tells you
You are enough
Despite what he wants you to believe
You are enough
Despite the fear he instills and keeps alive in every part of your life
You are enough
Despite him telling you you are worthless
You are enough
Despite the physical and mental blows he aims at you
You are enough
Despite the control he asserts over you
You are enough
You are strong enough not to give up hope
You are strong enough that one day when the time is right for you, you will be able to take the first step and make changes in your life
You will be strong enough to reach out to the support that is there for you
You will be strong enough to overcome any stigma that comes if y...

As children we think the world revolves around us
We are the centre of everyone's universe
Moonbeams are ours to catch
As we grow we realise we are not the centre of the universe
But we live in hope that somewhere out there ,there is a special someone who will make us the centre of their universe and  they will become the centre of ours
Together we will catch moonbeams

The more I think about it the more I realise that life is a miracle

When I look in the mirror I see healthy me with hair

I'd like to forgive myself for writing and sending that horrible letter

I need more me time in my life

I feel more creative when I have me time

I feel at peace sitting in my chair when its quiet and I'm knitting

I notice that I turn to food to escape my feelings, from now on I'll try telling people how I feel instead

My favourite memory is my sons birth

I'm fascinated by how people are so creative

I would like to write about a short story because I want to change from always writing in verse

If I were to describe my relationship with myself in a few words or sente...

There were so many books. How would I find the one.
My breathing became shallow and my chest became tight.
I couldn't we what I was looking for,so many of them looked the same.
There were too many books for me to search each shelf in the little time I had.
Think ,Think,I urged myself.  I looked around and realised there was no ladder.
Mordreth was only a tiny woman,she would not be able to reach the book from a high shelf.
I quickly looked through the books on the bottom shelf.
Suddenly a cold wind blew through the room making me afraid,very afraid. I turned from the bookcase slowly and came face to face with Mordreth.
"Looking for something were you?"
"Something that doesn't ...

Tastes of Freedom

Freedom tastes of -:
Having a duvet day
Not answering texts
Pressing reject instead of answering calls
Walking out of the door into the woods
Choosing what food I eat
Spending money on me
Wearing what I want
Saying what I think
I thought I was free
But then guilt anchored me

In the winter of our lives
I want to dance the Tango with you
I want to dance it on the beach with the waves lapping at out feet
I want to dance it in the meadow with the flowers shedding their perfume under our footsteps
I want to dance with you on a mountaintop with the sun shining on our faces
I want to dance with you endlessly
When death comes to claim us I want there to be no sorrow
Only joy, joy that we can rendezvous in another life and begin the Tango again.
