Fatal attraction

Megha's World

“Mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together.”
― Lisa Kleypas, Devil in Winter


That insatiable thirst

which rises from the depth of my soul

and devours me like a wildfire

this incessant need

to be wrapped around your soul

like an unstoppable contagion

this is the fever which is catching on

I’m getting drawn in

I love your lies

and I can slurp your deception

till that last drop

which quenches my thirst

and satiate my parched soul

You can pretend it not meant to be

but I can see the swirl of passion

in the black of your eye

and like a laughter hidden in the trees

I can  find your fragments buried in me

that surge of emotions

my soul is tainted by the carnal desire

like a festering wound

A “How to” Guide to Finding Yourself

Phoenix Inspiring

This morning I was going through my poems in search of something and found this poem.  It’s one I wrote sometime ago, and thought it might be helpful for you in understanding a little about the “how to” of spiritual ascension–of self-discovery.

Mosaic Woman Structure

There’s no way to tell you

What I’m feeling inside

Hard to spread out truth

Where so much error lies

We tend to get angry



When we only have peeks at

The vast, wide perspective

How can I give you

What’s still in slow progress—



Beneath a steeled surface

I’m afraid you can’t see me

Misinterpret my motives

Scared you’re repulsed by

My scarcely lit votives

Sometimes I’m impatient

Empty and maxed

Others I’m fearful


Even taxed

A mixture of emotion

Melting pot of expression

Trying to make it

In the wake of destruction

I don’t expect anything

Not words…

Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


I want to be Holly Lisle. My goal is to finish writing a book and publish in 2019. Sounds huge, doesn’t it? Or maybe I am letting my shoulder devil speak too loudly. I can no longer listen to the devil. Instead, I am defying words of caution and heading where I have never been. I concocted a half-baked plan, stirred up a healthy dose of determination and know 2019 is my year.

I am audacious, shooting for stars. As Emily says:

We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies—

The Heroism we recite
Would be a daily thing,
Did not ourselves the Cubits warp
For fear to be a King—

Emily Dickinson, 1830 – 1886

What is your 2019 audacious goal?
Keep on writing.

A Heart For A Home

Come and read Sarah’s – A HEART FOR A HOME

Sarah Doughty

“You made a home in my heart
before I even knew you were there.”

You picked the lock into my heart and I didn’t even know you were there until you were already inside. I wasn’t sure what to think of that. Surely I didn’t open the door. At least, not intentionally. But could I really call you an intruder? Did I really want you to pick up all the things I’d already admitted I adored about you? Did I really want you to take every piece of you and walk out that door as if you’d never entered?

I’d much rather spend whatever time we have together than send you on your way and feel the hole in my chest you’d be leaving behind.

So, please tell me you’ll stay.
