I’m no paragon of virtue, vice is too much fun I’m never being chased, yet I’m always on the run I’m lusting over here, and preening over there Everything is to excess, consumption everywhere Don’t be jealous of my ways, you know we’re all the same We leave the mess for someone else, and go on with our games There’s a question in your eyes, am I proud of what I’ve done? I don’t have time to think of that, I’m too busy having fun! I might leave you sad and broken, I might leave you mad and crazy I might care for you anotherRead More →

Have you all met Alex? He was in a story I wrote once but at the end, he walked out of it. I was confused. Why didn’t he like the way I planned for things to end? “It wasn’t my story babe,” he says with a patient sigh. “So you’ve said, but-” He yawns, bored with this conversation already. “No buts. That’s it. You know this, get over it.” That’s Alex. I’ve written about him before here and in a lot of other places too. He’s one of the voices in my head, an imaginary friend you might say. “I am not!” he gasps. “PrettyRead More →

Days go by in increments Seconds, minutes, hours Still I’m here alone Staring at the flowers You sent them to appease A token of your regret For that thing you don’t remember The one I can’t forget You radiate such charm No one would ever know The real you that you hide The one that lurks below The face they’ll never see That haunts me in my dreams The monster that you are That loved to hear my screamsRead More →

  I was going to start this post like so… This is my impression of an interesting post… I was going to write something about how you need a hook to draw readers in, maybe something funny so I was going to have a funny meme… But then I came across this tagged ‘Do your best Batman impression…’ It doesn’t get much better than that… does it?Read More →

(continues from here) Luka had cooked dinner, my favourite chicken and pasta, and we were lingering over bowls of ice cream as we caught up on each other’s day. Nothing unusual, except the ice cream, we didn’t eat that every night. Luka was telling me about the testing he had been doing the last couple of nights how it had identified vulnerabilities that led to more testing and how excited he and my father were about it all. Yes my boyfriend worked with my father but that wasn’t how we had met. Luka’s dad and mine were old friends so we’d grown up knowing eachRead More →

(continues from here) “Why do you come here?” I didn’t startle at his voice. I’d heard him following me, heard him swear and scramble at a couple of the jumps too. Couldn’t deny I’d been grinning then either. What did surprise me was that he didn’t sound out of breath. “The view,” I said as I braced my hands on my hips and looked out at the city. “Why do you?” “The view,” he echoed and I turned towards him. “Uh uh, don’t look,” he said softly and I stopped. II didn’t know why I was following his order, the command in his voice. IRead More →

(continues from here) Five weeks ago… I climbed out of bed and stretched my arms over my head feeling pleasantly sated but restless. Luka reached out a hand and ran it down the side of my body to give my ass a squeeze as I grinned down at him. “Where do you think you’re going?” he asked in a lazy voice, doing a little stretching of his own making his muscles ripple. I let him grab my hand and tug me back down beside him then lowered my mouth to his for a lush kiss. Everything about the man was lush from his lips toRead More →

It was the qualm before the storm The cats were stacked against us We were banking up the wrong tree We’d put our legs in just one basket It took two of us to tangle And we’d really lost the pilot Up the creek with just one peddle There were no clowns with silver linings To add assault to injury We weren’t playing with a full duck And the elves had left the building What’s that saying? Just my luck!Read More →

Watch me cry my bitter tears Slowly washing away my fears I’m standing stronger than before Since you don’t love me anymore The words you said you can’t recall We were always headed for this fall The time for change has passed us by There’s nothing left to do but cry Cry baby, as I walk away Cry baby, I wont rue this day Cry baby, we weren’t meant to last Cry baby, now I’m in your pastRead More →

I love this prompt! Everyone’s singing Sympathy For The Devil and that’s totally my jam. Pleased to meet you indeed… Me? Let me introduce myself… hahaha. That’s redundant and maybe bordering on plagiarism. You already know me. I’m the little voice inside your head who tells you to eat the cake, drink the alcohol, spend the money, break the speed limit. All those little things you know you shouldn’t be doing. And what do you do about it, about me? You feed me. You give in to my urges. You eat and drink. You live to excess. All the while moaning about how life isn’tRead More →

I don’t have a usable passportand can’t afford to go globe-trotting anyway, so it’s lucky I have WordPress! I sign in and right there I have my ticket to the world. Apparently it’s spring in Canada! I read that in a blog. Of course that’s true in a lot of other places too as evidenced by the photos of flowers blooming. The other week there was a snow storm, people were trapped for days. I did see that on the news but  reading about it from another blogger’s perspective had a lot more impact. If I did have the right documents to travel, I’d packRead More →
