Poetry Prompt Wednesday - SURE! Why not?!


You have a face
you have a name
but no!
I will not call you out!
You can dance around your own idiocrasy
Like a child
you saunter towards authority
looking for approval
to blame others
before you're caught demising
Your creations are like demon minions
placed in strategic corners of the minds of the weak
but, dear,
you simply misunderstand my placid nature
I sit
I observe
I note
and I reflect upon your actions
and like a cloud of dust
leave behind traces of your ways
and others begin to see
And soon you are lost
caged only by your lies
your confession is not needed
your actions are proof
You sinister being!
You bitch!

Wrote this one down in March

A few lines I jotted down in March.  I opened my comp book and read it and figured I might as well post it up here to allow those of you who choose to... judge.  Please respect my claim and don't copy in any way!

I stand upon the black-stained earth
a creation of my weeping
just like dark shadows that chase
surrounded I am with darkness beneath my feet.

Here is my first attempt at Senior Photos and editing.  I took a total of 267 photos on Thursday and here are 3 of my favorites of my step-daugher.  I have a lot more and will post as I edit.  I also have several of her boyfriend and a few of the 2 of them together.  I will post more as I go...

Senior Portraits

Today I get to take a stab at doing some Senior Portraits!!!!!!

I have so many ideas and so many tips and I am anxious to hone in on my skills.  I am WAY amateur at this photography thing, but do note I can't remember a time I didn't want to have a camera and shoot pictures of everything!  A gift and curiosity I learned from my father! (Love you, daddy!!)

The sun is actually shining for the 2nd day in a row here and I must - simply MUST - use it to my advantage for some outdoor photos.  Taking the pictures is the easy part... it's my editing skills that also need improvement and finding the time to sit down and solely focus on edits.  My own office would be GREAT!! (with a lock!!!)  Someday...

I hope to post the photos soon. 


Time keeps slipping away

Time keeps slipping away
Progession stays just out of reach
Depression sets in
I may need to adjust my meds. 


If there were no such thing as work I'd probably never get out of bed.  Lately all I want to do is curl up in a ball, snuggle with my pets and sleep the drama away.  RIGHT?! I guess taking my own advice - SUCK IT UP - is appropriate now, huh?

Looking at the problem makes me want to vomit.  Thinking of the problem makes me want to vomit.  Realizing I have no QUICK way out makes me want to vomit.  It's like someone put up a fence in front of my focus and goal and hid the ladder for me to climb.  It looks like I'll have to build my own ladder and being that supplies are at a low, it might take some time. 

So, what the hell do I do with the "spare" time I am given?  Bury myself into something productive and rewarding.  Do I take on this photography thing?  Pick up my pen and write again?  Obviously, I should!  Dear Motivation - WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!?!?!  You hid your face and when I find it... you better watch out!

Today I am full of simple ramblings.  Nothing exciting.  Same shit, different day.  It's time to regain focus and
