Friends

Friends

When I call on my friends they’re always there,

Helping me through sad times showing that they care.

I have many friends to share my life with friendships both long and short,

And when they’re not with me throughout the day I always give them a special thought.

I will always love and cherish my friends and keep them close to me,

They’re the ones who keep me safe and warm and as happy as can be.

Letting Go

Letting Go

Letting go of all my stress and worries, in second life today.

I’m logging out of my brain and throwing my cares away.

My feet are tired and aching my toes are numb, and I can’t think of anything to say.

This will be my downtime this will be my break I need to try to find a way to sleep, and let my body recuperate.

I think I’ve enjoyed second life too much this week visiting with friends, and the odd shopping trips too.

I’m going to go to sleep for a while now in my bed adorned with blankets of pastel blue,

And while I lay there dreaming quietly, my window will be basking in a bright and sunny view.

Summertime Blues

Summertime Blues

I came to the realization yesterday that summer doesn’t last forever, and neither will this lovely warm weather. Even though I had been sick lately and unable to really go anywhere except for the doctors and back again. I decided it was time, that I ventured out to the park across the street before summer was completely gone. It’s amazing just how much a park can change from the cooler months right into the warmer months when everything is teaming with life. I saw so many butterflies I tried to count them all, but there were just too many it was magical.

After maybe ten or so minutes of sitting on a park bench under a tree watching the butterflies play. I was approached by an elderly man wearing a rather well-worn bowler hat and coat. He didn’t say anything at first it was I who actually initiated the conversation, and the most interesting line I could come up with to say to him was actually in the form of a question. I turned to him and asked ” Aren’t you too hot in that big heavy coat love? ” to which he just replied with a single word ” No “

The conversation eventually started rolling, and he asked what was wrong with me because obviously he could see I had been sick. I told him all about my illness, and he explained how he had lost his wife to the same illness. I almost snapped at him and said ” Gee thanks for the reassurance ” but no I held my tongue and continued to listen to his story. He had told me about how he had been a soldier in world war two, and how this very experience coupled with losing his wife had really changed his views on life and given him a whole new appreciation on the values of life and never taking things for granted.

After the old man had got up and left I sat there in the park eating my egg and lettuce sandwich. You know his story really inspired me to write this blog, and he really made me think about my own life. I have had so much sadness in my life that up until now I never really looked at any of the positives, and it was this old man who taught me a valuable lesson. I am still young you see, and I suppose it is easy to will yourself to die when you are ill, but quite honestly I think from now on I should stop having a moan about my situation and focus on getting well again.

I don’t think any one of us really appreciate life for what it is, and with the way the world is today it’s easy to lose sight of the smallest details that are often the most important to focus on. What that man taught me was that life is far too precious to want to give it up we should be living it no matter how bad our situation is or how sick we may be. I suppose as far as my life goes it could be a lot worse because as the old familiar saying goes.

” There’s always someone out there who has it worse than you. “

She Rules With Love

She Rules With Love

She rules with love throughout the land to the raging sea.

Her powers exceeding those of all other gods,

Her beauty compared to that of aphrodite.

Her temperament her grace her elegance and love,

She commands the respect of many a god and goddess from heaven above.

Her wisdom knows no bounds her knowledge is quite vast,

She is the ruler with many battles won in her colourful past.

Many worship her and adore her so, but whatever her name may be nobody knows.

She has no want or need of a name or identity as such,

She has learned the art of remaining an enigma in history by never revealing too much.

She rules with love throughout the land to the raging sea.

Her fighting spirit thousands of years later still lives on in you and me.

Velvet Sands

Velvet Sands

My own little secret paradise I call it velvet sands.

Come let me show you as I take you by the hand,

And we can go for a casual walk along the shore

sweet sunshine romance and more.

Dipping our fingers and toes in velvet sands,

Our lip locked embrace clutching hands.

Pulses racing sweet scent in the air take me now if you dare,

Bodies crashing together like waves on a stormy sea.

Imagining in my head all the things you could do with me,

But a storm is brewing now over velvet sands we must leave now so take my hand.

Let’s return home and do what we do best,

Curl up together in front of the fire blankets caressing both our chests closing our eyes for a long relaxing rest.

We Need To Walk

We Need To Walk

Even though the weather day was mostly cloudy. I really wanted to go for a walk that’s something I am missing more and more. I did manage to walk out my front door and wave to my neighbour who was getting to car, she asked how I was because I had been poorly lately and we chatted for a little bit until she had to go work.

I’m laying here in bed and I am occasionally nodding off watching random youtubes and blogging. In fact, if I fall asleep now then you’ll never see this blog until I wake up again lmao. So let’s just stay awake and finish this daily ramble so you can have fun reading it unless you’re using this as a sleeping pill, in which case if I find out you are I will be very displeased.

I’ve decided, I don’t care how tired I am…..come tomorrow I am going outside and headed for the park. This summer isn’t going to last forever I wish it did but unfortunately in the real world that doesn’t happen. That is something I love about SecondLife you not only play a character, but you get to choose your location and your favorite season awesome huh?

I am getting so so sleepy somebody slap me, please! I need to stay awake I am almost there almost finished in fact I see the finishing line it’s right up ahead lol. I am almost done with another blog you know this hard work for me I am not a blogger…..so not a blogger but I love to share my thoughts my feeling my weird poetry, and I just know you all love reading it. Ok, so sleep has finally won me over I am going to take my annual afternoon nap and sleep the day away, and you my darling friends can take one with me too if you like. I have to warn you though my bed can only hold two cats and two humans no more than that, so before you get any funny ideas about jumping into bed next to me take my advice sleep on the bloody floor instead and don’t wake me!

Embracing Summer

Embracing Summer

I’m embracing summer with a wondrous force,

And I’ll have no need for thick woolen cardigans or anything wintery of course.

Instead, I’ll wear floral skirts and pretty dresses and bathe myself in a meadow of flowers and a gentle breezes sweet caresses,

Wandering barefoot the grass sliding between my toes glancing at my watch it’s almost time for me to head home.

The heat is receding the afternoon storms are almost here,

The skies are becoming less and less clear.

Running home quickly trying to beat the rain waiting for tomorrow when I can embrace summer again,

And as night falls the hours tick by and the storms are now past, I’m falling asleep on the sofa dreaming of embracing another hot summer day tomorrow.

It will soon be approaching fast!

Open Book

Open Book

All her life she’s lived an open book laid bare before the world.

Hopes and dreams for a bright future consume this little girl,

And will she ever find someone to love her someone who really cares,

Someone who will take care of her through sickness and health someone with whom she can share.

Living all her life as an open book has opened her up to pain,

But by the same token she knows that she must endure the harshness of storms in order to see the sunshine again.

Her secrets she keeps hidden beneath her souls sweet caress,

Safely guarded undisturbed stacked layer upon layer of torment and mess.

All her life she’s lived an open book laid bare before the world,

Many of life’s greatest secrets lay yet undiscovered for this tormented little girl.

Nature Walks

Nature Walks

Today is one of those days where it would be a crime to be seen indoors, unlucky for some like me who have no choice but to remain indoors for the time being. The weather can only be described this afternoon as being as close to perfect as humanly possible. I live across the street from a park, and today I wish I could just get up out of my bed and go for a nice long walk and take in all that mother earth has to offer, nature at it’s finest.

I actually wasn’t planning on blogging at all today. I had stayed up all night once again and has really taken its toll on me, but something about the nice weather has inspired me to write a blog about taking a nature walk well it’s really a walk in the park, but I call them nature walks, because as a child growing up in place teaming with lots of exotic wildlife my mother used to take my sister and I outside for nice long walks in the summer. I can distinctly remember being fascinated by all the different colours of the butterflies, insects and birds that flew from tree to tree and flower to flower.

Since I had been laying in bed for the better part of the day I had decided to get up for a short while eat something, and rummage around my box of Blu-rays and DVD’s. I managed to dig deep and find my box set collection of David Attenborough nature documentaries that had been lurking far beneath the messy pile. I don’t know what it is about that man’s voice, but he always puts me to sleep, and I don’t mean that in a bad way David on the contrary you are a wonderful tv presenter, and of course partly responsible for my impromptu blog today.

Tawny Skies

Tawny Skies

Why do you sit under tawny skies,

Sipping the last essence of your nauseatingly weak tea trying not to let the world see you cry.

Why will you insist on being so sad when you have so much to give,

Pull yourself together woman there are a legion of reasons why you should live.

What’s that you say you can’t go on your mind and heart are both confused what could be wrong,

So you’ve made a few bad choices in life and haven’t we all.

That is hardly a good enough reason to let yourself fall,

Now please listen to your head and listen up good.

Let this be absolutely clear, and well understood.

You have a myriad of friends they’re all waiting for you,

So log back into second life and stop being so blue.
