I remembered dear Andrea. A lovely Michigan gal, once was kind to my young heart. I wrote into a notebook.

“Time has pass us by,
old wounds don’t hurt so badly.
Old sorrow had become the poet’s wealth.”

I am drinking wine alone in Paris, the city of love, the city of lights. I told the Paris moon, forsaken love. Leave us dreaming of things gone. I sprinkle more words to the notebook.
“I wish upon the rising moon.
Forget me not beautiful Andrea.
Once you made me smiled and
we danced. And you told me.
You were my only gal.
Now just promises made, never kept.”

Tonight I am listening to the French songs in Paris and I wished we attempted love. I remembered I returned to Michigan in 1978 and your father told me. You left and never returned. I wrote a note, I gave to your…

I am here….


I am here…

Loneliest man in the bar,

drinking alone.

He told the smoking cigarette and the empty whiskey glass,

you knew the ending at the beginning.

A soft hand touched his shoulder,

a kind face, a gentle voice whispered.

When you dance with the devil, you will lose.

Pretty face don’t mean kind heart,

she is gone and I stayed.

The dead heart need kindness and a friend.

Please Johnnie,

let’s drink some coffee at my place and talk the pity away.

I know men are foolish and I have forgiven you.

Can you forgive yourself?

He looked at her and he asked her.

No-one want left-over wine and a sad story.

Do you believe I am worth the time?

You deserve everything and more.

You deserve someone who shall never break your heart.

She smiled and she kissed his face.

She whispered,

love isn’t easy, love isn’t written…

My seasons

Keep it alive

“Embrace the seasons and cycles of your life – there is magic in change.”~ Bronnie Ware

This week partner GC and I give you the word Season as your weekend challenge.


Just like the seasons around me, I have my seasons too
They may coincide with the weather
Or it could be independent celebration of my inner spirit
Days and weeks, I’m sunny like summer
Then at times I reinvent myself, like spring
My autumn and winter come with interception and meditation
It is when I look back and analyze my past mistakes
When the time to come awaken again
There’s a repeat of seasons but not in any given order

Written for;Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge – Season, hosted by Sue W and GC

Sunday Poser # 77

Keep it alive

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

In your opinion, how far can a person go for a loved one? Or what can they tolerate?

In a recent situation with a friend, I came across this question. What can people tolerate from those they love. Can they take abuse, gaslighting, and disrespect and still love that person?

For me the answer was simple. I think mistreatment kills the love and respect someone might have felt towards their abuser/partner/ spouse. In my opinion, love can only exist if there is mutual respect. I’ve not experienced the obsessive type of love which comes at all costs. Have you experienced such love or know someone who loves despite being mistreated or physically or/and mentally abused?

Another way to ask this question would be; Do people love another irrespective of how they are treated?

Please share your thoughts in the…

Life Is Nothing But Moments

Be Inspired..!!

I was laughing with my friends today when I realised something. Life is nothing but moments. That fight you had with your best friend is just a moment. The time you were up all night finishing a project is just a moment. The night you watched the sunset with thee boy you thought you’d marry is just a moment. The championship that you lost is just a moment. The road trip you spent with your friends singing to throwbacks is just a moment. Every up and every down and everything in between is just a moment that passes with time. You may remember these moments and you may not, but what you will remember is the people you spent them with and the way you felt. The way she made you laugh, the way he made you cry, and the way they made you feel like you were on top…
