It was always you

My Entry for a poetry contest held by opinionated man, click link for details,


It Was Always You…..

You left me alone still drunk from your kiss, I waited here for you, in the aftermath of our love, why do you haunt me from the Abyss,

You knew that I was drowning, I know that you felt it, but you left me alone in this puddle of confusion, Can’t you see the cross I bear, it was you it was always you,

Sometimes at night I can feel you like a warrior that has come to claim his prize, Your mighty sword has cut me deep, and the bleeding never stops, why did you have to leave your spell upon me,

It is maddening, these chains you put upon my heart, Why can’t I break free? Sometimes when I sit by my window, I can feel you there just like you never left,

The sun sits on my shoulders and the warmth engulfs me like the heat of your kiss, and when the gentle winds blow, I am once again swept away into your arms

No it is not a dream, I feel you, you are there, I know it is you, it was always you, I told you you could stay, and your kiss answered me that you would,

You whisper you belong to me, with your arms wrapped so tightly  around me, and your heart beating frantically, I feel as though I could faint, I begin to tremble, I know I can’t escape, nor do I want to,

Everything around us is still, but only for a moment, that brief second before the storm begins, the oceans in your eyes hypnotize me, the warmth of your body, along with the urgency of your kiss, I can not hold back, I am tangled in the web that is you, I know I am defeated I surrender,

And then suddenly, it begins to rain, but I realize, they are just tears, each one a reminder, of the love I have for you, You have gone once again, like a theif in the night, and left me with only this yearning……

Daily Prompt/ First time seeing a Praying Mantis Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.

It was the first time I ever saw a  Praying Mantis  I went outside the other day, and I saw something I had never seen before with my own eyes, I quickly called my husband, and he said, it’s a PRAYING MANTIS, Yes, of course, he looked like he was praying…. I ran inside and grabbed my camera, snapped a few quick shots, and then I put the camera down, and sat quietly and just enjoyed him for a few minutes, and then went inside.

I looked for him the next day, and he was actually still there, and the next after that, but a few days passed, and he was no longer there, I guess he was on to bigger and better things, but I was so happy he came to my yard, and I got to enjoy him for a day or so, and that was my first time seeing a Praying Mantis!!!   Here a few facts about this wonderful creature!

The praying mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer. The larger group of these insects is more properly called the praying mantids. Mantis refers to the genus mantis, to which only some praying mantids belong.

By any name, these fascinating insects are formidable predators. They have triangular heads poised on a long “neck,” or elongated thorax. Mantids can turn their heads 180 degrees to scan their surroundings with two large compound eyes and three other simple eyes located between them.


The space or line where the sky meets the earth. So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. It can be water, a city skyline, a forest, a wasteland, a desert, a sunset outside your bedroom window. Is there a particular horizon which speaks to you?
