Damn: A Discourse on Profanity :iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 0 0
The 'L' Word
I speak my piece
into the empty air,
and God knows
how you hurt me.
And the silence is deafening.
I can't hear you
through the screaming
in my mind.
The touch of your eyes
caressing my skin
still lingers
in the air around me.
I know the taste
of your scent on my tongue,,
and oh!
how I miss it.
Dishes broken,
and furniture smashed;
in my mind,
I burn you in effigy.
I can't take this on alone.
I was so close
to the end,
only to see
the finish line
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 3 0
71. Obsession
You are my
sensually stroking my
and we go
everywhere together;
I have your back.
I'll protect you,
watch over you;
I'll make you safe
my precious,
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 3 0
70. 67%
67% of the time,
you make me feel safe.
But otherwise,
you terrify me
with your rages
and one of these days,
I’m going to be
100% sorry
I ever let you touch me.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 1 0
69. Annoyance
You irritate me
until I'm so desperate
to make you shut up
that I might just do
something I know I'll regret.
You should go away.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 1 3
67. Playing the Melody
You pluck my strings
with expert ease,
and I fall.
The song playing
in my heart,
an exquisite melody.
Come dance with me,
and we will soar
into our dreams.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 3 3
50. Breaking the Rules
Don’t tell me what to do;
I know how to live my life.
Why don’t you take a look
in the mirror?
Follow your own rules
before you judge me
for breaking them.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 1 0
36. Precious Treasure
Rubies and sapphires and diamonds –
Oh my!
But all that glitters
is not gold,
and all that sparkles
is not treasure.
So beautiful,
but in the end,
so pointless.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 3 1
37. Eyes (Wide Open)
I stretch my sight
to see the truth of you,
peering into
the abyss.
With eyes wide open,
I take a stand;
I light the way,
and watch each step
Take my hand
and walk with me.
My cat eyes
can see in the dark.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 4 0
73. I Can't (Keeping Up Appearances)
“I can’t”
are words that
I can’t afford to say.
I have to try
to attempt to fly
on broken wings.
They drag me down,
pull strands from my crown
and leave me a puppet on strings.
But I’m not allowed
off of this cloud;
I have to stay.
I don’t know what else to say.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 2 0
I Am Switzerland
I am Switzerland
I have
No problem staying neutral;
I'll stand my ground. 
And you may hate me
With all your might
While I stand between you
And your fight,
But you can't move me. 
I am a mountain;
And you can keep trying
To cut stone
Or you can accept
What is out of your control.

Those Who Came Before
Remember those who came before;
those who died to settle the score.
Remember all the things you love,
and give thanks to them and God above.
Thank their mothers and their fathers
that they raised such sons and daughters,
who would give their lives for all us strangers
so we can live away from danger.
So wear a poppy, bright and red.
Leave no mourning tear unshed
for those we lost and those we loved.
They fought and died for all of us.
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 1 0
Black tears
threaten to fall
from aching eyes.
A wave of despair
rolls in around,
and I can feel
the throbbing echo
of her pain
in my own chest.
Would that I could
pull it out of her,
and into me, for
I have borne it before,
and know the weight
upon my shoulders, my
uncomfortable, unwelcome
whispering relentless that
         tomorrow, tomorrow,
        it will all end,
       and you will be alone
:iconbeyond-the-pages:Beyond-the-Pages 1 0
I remember how it was
You and I were so in love
You say her name,
Think it’s a game;
But it’s not the same.
And I remember all the lies,
Took forever to realize
You’re not the one
And we are done,
Now I’ve got myself a new name,
And I don’t need to play your games.
Everything has changed,
I’m not the same,
So go away.
I remember how we were,
You gave it all up just for her.
Look at my scars,
It’s who we are,
And it’s not so far away.
Now it’s all turned into dust,
Everything left out to rust
And how could I
Just let it lie?
It’s do or die.
So I got myself a new name,
And I don’t need to play your games.
Everything has changed,
I’m not the same,
So go away.
And I don’t need your money.
I don’t need your touch
I’ve got enough
Now I’ve got a new name,
And I don’t need your games.
Everything has changed,
I’m not the same,
So go away.

Hello everyone. I know it's been a long while since I've posted anything on here, but I find it cathartic to do so and my life has been very hectic of late. I won't go into extreme details for privacy issues, but the bullet points are as follows:

1. My mother has been struggling with cancer for months now, and there's a good possibility that there's some in her bones. I want to scream and break things, but at the same time I feel numb. She can't walk without crutches and her leg is hurting constantly. She's also the kind of person who gets joy out of completing tasks, so it's very frustrating for her, too.

2. I submitted the novel I wrote last NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) to a publisher, and was offered a publishing contract, but I'm not going to do it; I did some more research, and aside from the fact that this company wants me to contribute 3,300 USD (which is like 4,100 CAN), they don't appear to have the best reputation when taking care of their authors. I'm still going to pursue publishing, but I can't afford to pay for it myself, and I want to go with someone who is reputable.

3. I have been working full time at a K-8 school for the last 3 months and I love it. There's never a dull moment, but the business comes in waves, so it's not constant. And the kids are great. I feel right at home.

4. I applied for and have been approved for an apartment. I'll be moving at the beginning of February, so I've got a lot to prepare for. This is my first time living alone. I lived in dorm for a couple years, but that was different. It's nerve-wracking, but exciting. I already have a lot of the things I need, and a lot of other stuff I can get from my parents. I think about 1/4-1/3 of the items I'll have to buy, including a couch and a chair, but those aren't the critical things. The kitchen things are the most important, so that's where my focus will be first. I also want to get a crock-pot/slow cooker. It will mean that I can throw stuff together the night before, and then just turn on the crock pot before I leave for work. Then, when I get home, I'll have supper ready for me. It's a lovely apartment, in a pet-friendly building, and it's only a few blocks away from my parents, so I can drop my dog off there in the morning for them to watch.

5. On the holiday front, I got some great gifts, including an old-fashioned mechanical type-writer. I love it, and I have no idea where I'm going to put it in my new place, but it will definitely be on display. It was totally unexpected, too, but perfect.

That's all that I have on my mind right now, but the cancer thing is what's weighing on me the most. If you pray, I just ask that you keep my mother in your prayers, and that whatever the problem be, it be minor and fixable.
