SACRED and PROFOUND LOVE 

Their breath baited,
Their eyes are still,
Their body nearly sated,
As they watch tonight’s kill.

Her curtains stitched to deceive,
The predator of her need,
Her virginal looks leave them to believe,
There is only innocence; no darkness nor greed.

But, as those curtains raise,
Her darkness relinquishes every spec of light.
Their fondest dreams left ruined and ablaze,
Her corruption obscures their sight.

The moral of this tale,
Lies exposed upon that tranquil stage,
Within the crevices of that pristine trail,
Resides darkness bursting from its cage.

I’m Not Perfect Campaign by Tammy L Wilkins

image

 

A wonderful young lady that I have got to know over the past few years online, Tammy – Louise Wilkins, is running this great campaign via her Blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts… and she has asked a group of us to participate!

For more information check out her Blog Post http://t.co/2XwwhlKJq4 

~~~~~

Definition of Perfect:
adj. Having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be….

My Words:

Hmmm I am so far from this definition…. and I am imperfect in so many ways!

As time is flying by faster each year and the body is changing rapidly as I head for the next big milestone age of 50, in not so many years to come… I am by no means perfect and never have been… I have always hated my body and at times my self quite a lot… I have been over-weight since my 20’s, suffered from depression and have been hurt a lot in life both emotionally and physically… People can let you down and we can let ourselves down too… but the one thing I’ve learnt through all my lessons so far is that we can’t control others, we can only control ourselves…

In my line of work though I have come across some amazing people who are facing much tougher roads… and some are much younger than me… SO I am learning as I get older to just try and let go and live each day as best I can because who knows how long we have to enjoy it!?!

And when Tammy asked if I would like to take part in this Campaign of “Embracing the Imperfections we behold” I was happy to… as it is a great idea to stop, breathe and try to appreciate ourselves for exactly who we are… Imperfections and all 😉

I also came across this beautiful Poem 20 years ago I would like to share with you all…

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Betrayal – No turning back.

20140408-170429.jpg

It was merely a dream. A delusional hallucination they often told her. It was a reverie in which she would gladly lose herself in at any and every moment of solitude…

She sat upon the countertop; one leg stretched out on the sodden marble whilst the other dangled in an indolent and limp state. Tracks of icy water slinked down the quiver flesh of her curves until they trickled from the tips of her dainty toes. With one glance into those heated eyes she’d fantasised about so often, she was intoxicated. He stood before her, clad in the only uniform she had envisioned. A God of his own world, the Master of his universe.

It was their chance. The time to finally connect the way they’ve desperately longed for. The one thing that would secure the pairing and change fate. It was their moment to…

Lover of the Light

The mouth-wateringly rousing words you utter
Oh how they make my heart shamelessly flutter

Soft caress of your fingertips upon my skin
Secure in your tender hold, love and lust akin

Just for this fleeting moment, you are only mine
Want, need and longing combined, our bodies gently entwine
I come undone by the three words you whisper once more
Eliciting such an intense emotion I’ve never experienced before

You’re my fiery, passionate ball of light
Whether in the distance or right before my doe-eyed sight
Your glistening flame continues to melt my carefully carved walls
Crafted to protect myself yet you insist on making me fall

You kiss with deep meaning and sensual delight
Steal shy glances my way each and every night
Touch with warmth and adoration created to rock my core
Slowly but surely, this is how you’ve made me yours

And yet, after all this time, my heart still flutters
By the same three words you so gloriously utter

Though now so far away, you express such strong devotion
For your love is still present through words across the oceans
