Its complicated
All confused
Where should she go
Obsession leads to controlling destructive behaviours
Mixed feelings shows no commitment
What is it about him she loves
Can she even tell?
Her best friend may know all about her
And love her with all his heart
But from her side love is not mentioned
Best friend he should remain
She should wait patiently
And not commit to a relationship
Cos it sounds like with both men
She is going to hurt and get hurt.

What he didn't know was that she was a student of phrenology
The depression in his skull showed he had an underdeveloped faculty in his commitment area
She kissed him and walked away.

Writing prompt.
The library is Ethan's favourite place To go when he wants to be alone. There's usually hardly anyone around and he can walk through the endless hallways filled with books. He loves the smell of all those books. As he gently let's his fingers go over the book covers as he passes them,he suddenly stops. He stands by the bookshelf.
Mrs Arden comes over to him " well Ethan what have you found today".
"Upside down " Ethan mumbles and points to the book.
Mrs Arden stands the book up the right way.
" I don't know what I'd do without you Ethan,you are so good at checking the books".
"Ten minutes more and then you can have a cookie"
Ethan continues down the hallway of books
Mrs Arden ...

My ship is tethered to your island
By ropes made out of joy
Our love creates the gravity that keeps us floating along
We float above reality,suspended in our own space and time
The clocktower calls us to worship to celebrate our love
We float along blissful and unaware
The pearly moonshine bathes us in moonbeams
And guides us on our way
We sleep wrapped up in contentment
Until the light of day

In an unsustainable world we are sheered off and sent to foreign worlds
Where the moonshine is as bright in their world as in ours
Tethered to the ship that guides us ,gravity pulls us along on our way
We float above the cloud line seeking mountainous tree filled slopes
Where we can mould ourselves into the landscape and get succour from their earth
Our clocktower sends a signal to others to follow our lead
Our mountainsides are dying and we must journey and evolve into a new breed.

Animal

My animal would be a cow
Cows are friendly and so useful
She would provide me with milk to drink
Dung to light a fire with
Warmth to snuggle up to at night
My spiritual animal ,a duck ,could ride on her back as we travel the world and we would be a happy band of three.

Storytime

She never understood why he was so incredibly distant towards her. What could she possibly have done to make him act this way?
She tried to think of reasons whilst she walked towards him.
He nods to her as he greets her and says hi.
They now stand in front of each other as she quietly observes him for a moment before answering.
"Would you like to grab a coffee before we go into court,we've got time"
"Okay" ,he replied hesitantly.
She smiled at him"my treat,I might even buy you a muffin for all your extra work on this case,you have been brilliant"
A small smile shows on his face,"thanks ,in that case ,I'll have double chocolate chip".
They settle at a table in a quiet corner.

Nighttime comes
Bizarre dreams
In my mind
A clouded sky
An empty cradle
A child lost
Stranded on an island
Balloons floating away
No birthday celebrations
Swimming in the sea
Turmoil all around
I fear I am drowning
A bear in a boat
How bizarre
Does it have a meaning?
Waking up
Tears in my eyes
Was any of it real
Is the child lost
Will it be saved
Is that a dream for another night
Does it have a meaning?

Golden beams
For a golden life
A life laid down in strife
Golden beams for a golden crown
Which has no head to bear it
The king has lost his golden son
He stands without a heir
Golden beams for a golden life
A life lost in a battle
Lands were gained,the enemy slain
But the ultimate price was paid
Golden beams for a golden life
A life laid down in strife

WOD
The sun beat down on the desert,the earth baked and was all adust
I knew I would be lucky to survive,my adust complexion began to cause me serious pain and my dry parched lips began to crack.
Water was nowhere to be found in this barren place.

So it came to pass that the forces grew stronger.  Clouds gathered and a sea of water flooded the land drowning people and animals in its path.
Meme had placed the child in its cradle and tried to swim to a safe place for the chosen one must be saved.
Baltimore tried to follow her but the only boat he had been able to find was a small sailing dinghy which could barely carry his weight. He was hardly floating on top of the water.
Meme became cold and tired but the fear within her kept her going.
She knew she would not be able to survive in the cold sea for much longer and headed desperately for an island of rocks.
She pushed the cradle onto the rocks and the child crawled ...

The carp swam down the river to his daily meeting with his fellow carps
They had a carp about the state of the river and how humans were polluting it
They carped about having to keep in the shade of the river so they didn't get caught by an anglers hook
They had a carp about how the anglers were getting crafty and trying to tempt them with more delicious tidbits and how hard it was getting to resist
They said a quiet prayer for Stan who yesterday had been caught on a hook and had gone to the great frying pan in the sky
They hoped that as he was so old and didn't have much flesh on his bones he would taste horrid and not give the angler much of a meal
After they had had a good carp they all sw...

When I look in the mirror ......
I don't like what I see
Is that old overweight woman really me?
Are those tired out eyes with bags underneath them really mine
Its been so hard lately they have forgotten how to twinkle and shine
Is that furrowed brow  really mine ,creases and a very deep worry line
My hairs a mess I really need it cut
My waistline has gone and I've developed a gut
But...... I put on a smile, comb my hair
Walk into the bedroom and greet my husband with a smile
And hope and pray he is going to be with me for a longer while.😢

We don't need Valentines Day and all its commercialism
To tell someone we love them
We could do it all the time
With a loving touch,a loving smile
A warm and loving embrace

Why wait for Valentines Day and all its commercialism
It may be too late
If your love is measured by the card,the present,the "romantic meal"
To me its not worth measuring
Say it ,make it known, show it
"I love you" is all it takes

As the life left her body her spirit began to transform
Ready for the afterlife
The transformation was slow but painless
Allowing her the time to accept that she would become a raven
A free spirit to soar in the wind

The guns were loud ,as were the screams of men
Charge, came the command
I felt myself blench
And took a step back
Then saw my fellow men go forward
I couldn't let them go alone
So I took a step and followed them

My life Mixtape
* Love me tender - Elvis - reminds me of my Uncle Keith who introduced me to Elvis's music. I love Love me tender and think it applies to everyone you love,you should love them tender and true.

* Call me Al - I love all Paul Simon's music. The beat,rhythm, lyrics and everything about this song and the video is upbeat and funny and makes me smile.
* The Boxer -Simon and Garfunkel - My favourite part is "In a clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade,and he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down or cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame I am leaving ,I am leaving ,but the fighter still remains". Isn't that like us ,we are strong no matter ...

I try to be a nice person
Always polite and fair
BUT.......
Sometimes,especially when I'm very stressed
The bitch in me comes out
I don't like her,she's not very graceful
Her eyes are glassy and her words show no wisdom
I have to struggle to put her back
She makes me perspire
My brow gets damp
I push her inside and try to stop her coming out
Its hard sometimes though

I am determined not to become a torn faded photograph in a musty box in the attic.
That's why we walk in the woods and play hide and seek
We bake cakes and make a mess
We play bingo and pass the parcel on birthdays and Christmas and other games where we laugh and make gentle fun of each other
We make up stories and songs everywhere we go
We dig and plant on the allotment and feed and enjoy the wildlife
We walk the dogs ,splash in puddles and climb trees( not me personally but my grandchildren)
We visit great grandparents regularly and enjoy the circle of life
We enjoy the simple things in life
We enjoy being together
We make memories that I hope will never be ...

Upside down.
I opened the door and stepped into a life where
*cancer is cured
* everybody cares for each other
*we all  get the services we need to support us
* there is no hate
* no child is hungry
* no child is abused
* the punishment fits the crime
* life means life,5 years means 5 years,you did the crime,you do the time
*the elderly are respected and cared for
* we share what we have
*everyone strives for a better world.

This challenge is amazing. It reminds me of  the books I so love by Philip Pullman -his Dark Materials.
Everyone has daemons,Lyra's is Pantalaimon, who settles as a Pine Martin.
My daemon is a duck,a pure white duck with orange feet and beak. She waddles along beside me and quacks to alert me when something is wrong.
Her name is Faithful, Faith for short. She is patient,kind and faithful,the best companion you could have.

Vague,unclear ,muddled
Confused and ill defined
That's why nebulous and I are two of a kind
I'm cloudy,fuzzy,muddied
My dreams are shapeless too
You can describe me as nebulous
And at this moment in time
It would be true

Dad sat staring into the fire
His hands trembled on top of the blanket I had placed around his legs
My heart was breaking but I knew it was for the best
Moving him into a home was not something I wanted to do
But I had to be realistic and face the fact that he needed more specialist care than I could give him
It was so hard deciding what he would want to take with him
My life as well as his was wrapped up in this house
How would I decide what to keep and what to let go
I knew he wouldn't want to take the pot poodles on the mantelpiece
They had been Mum,s favourites and Dad had never liked them
"Accidentally knock them off while you're dusting" Dad used to joke to me

Material things are nothing, people are more important than any possession you may have.
Treasure each moment with the people you love, make memories.
Tell them you love them when you can because one day they may be gone and that love and those memories will see you through.
Love always survives.💖
