And so this chapter ends

Not with me

But with him

My futile efforts

To win her love

Now ends with a ring

This minute era

Now memories cherished

But locked, key thrown away

The sun will rise

The moon will wane

The ocean’s tide

The April rain

Reminding me of sweet perfume

And eyes of a misty glaze

That one February day

On the edge of the great plain

Holds a place in my brain

Dark Places

darkworld

Getting out of that dark place was the best thing that could have ever happened to me, because now I have a direction in life and see more and more opportunities on the horizon, whenever they become available. Always having something to look forward to everyday, whether it be writing, photography, or filmmaking, gives me a sense of purpose in life, and eases my doubts and makes me happy.

I still know a few people who are in a dark place and would greatly benefit from a helping hand and support to get them going in the right direction. The reason one of these people is in such a bad spot is because they have had an abusive childhood and were brought up with basically no love and support. Getting that much needed love and care would do wonders for this person, as she would finally see hope and light for the first time and not want to go back to living that dreary, depressing, misguided life of her past. Her abusive parents are to blame for how terrible her life has been up to now, not having a solid home to stay in, going from place to place, not knowing where she’ll end up next, a perpetual leaf in the breeze, dust blowing in the wind. Imagine not even being able to sleep in a bed, but on the cold hard floor. I wish there was something I could do about it but at this point I can only hope that she will figure it all out.

Get Your Feet Wet

Pool Filter Underwater

Into deep blue
I sink my feet
The all day pain
Washed away
Clear blue
A refreshing fusion
Of science and nature

H2O

Summer Lounging

Simple days by the pool

The tanning aspirations

Soaking up the rays

Natural sun

Glorious blue

Pretty crowded

Noisy fun

A fine luxury

Wouldn’t have it any other way

Lounging

If only my pale white skin would go away

Simplicity

Share Your World 2016 Week #21

What is your favorite go to beverage?  Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)

Water or tea. I don’t like anything too acidic. Coffee is just bleh.

  • Can you change a car tire?

Never have so I wouldn’t know how, but it would be good to know how in case of an emergency on the side of the road.

  • Are you a listener or talker?

Definitely a listener though I can talk someone’s arm off in certain situations, usually when provoked

  • Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?

I can go without a cellphone but being without the Internet would be difficult because of having no contact with the outside world and missing out on important events.

Music = Rejuvenation

Music has always been the best way for me to cool down and be happy. Good music that is. It has the power to refresh your mind, to put things back into perspective. Many a times I’ve felt like the world was moving too damn fast and I just needed to slow down and listen to something relaxing, something to shut out all of the craziness and chaos. Yes, it’s not possible to shut out that chaos forever because that is how the world works, but I definitely need time to myself to reflect and think.

This particular piece I picked out has the right amount of ambiance and soothingness to calm anyone down, including the angriest people ever. Whenever I am to sit down and write, I need something to get me into a mode and this is definitely it. Just close your eyes, like I did, and let the music take you wherever you want to go.

The title of this post is a reference to a similar post I did a long time ago called Exercise = Rejuvenation (which accidentally got overwritten with a post about the 2015 State of the Union, unfortunately).
