REMORSE

Standard

REMORSE

I’m so sorry

I know that is not enough.

I could apologize again, and again and

Even if you forgave me, I could never forgive myself

For what I have done to you.

How do I beg forgiveness from a spirit as loving as you?

You must have felt I was not proud of you, that I didn’t love you

Anymore.

I betrayed your love for me, I know that, now.

I never deserved to have your love, when all I ever did was

Cause you pain, hurt you…

Why…why couldn’t I have treated you better?

You are gone, yet your spirit  surrounds me…

Mocks me…

I tried being the friend and lover you so desperately needed.

I killed our love…

I killed our love…

I killed you…

RAINBOW WARNING

Drunk with wonder, people gazed at the shimmering rainbow that cut a swath through the clear blue sky.

The beautiful colors, a sign…a false flag to lure populations world-wide into complacency.

After forty days of jubilation, humanity was vaporized.

Q1 – What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

The chore I cannot stand to do is floors. I don’t like sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming. I’ve said before, I’d rather wash 1,000 dishes by hand, every day, than do one floor. Ugh! I do like doing dishes, though. 🙂

Q2- What was the last URL you bookmarked?

Does bookmarked mean saved to favorites? Does that mean moving an email to the archives folder? Not sure what bookmark is. I save some stuff to read later in the archives, and save to favorites so I can find places I visit a lot. I put in archives last, a story a blogger is writing in serial form, until I have time to read it. In favorites, I put the location of another challenge I’m doing, so I can refer to the rules again when I need them.

Q3- Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?

Right now, my back is killing me. I’ve sat in this chair way too long, and need my heating pad.

Q4- Would you rather have a two bedroom apartment in a big city of your choosing, or a mansion in the countryside, in the state or country where you currently live?

I don’t like apartments. I don’t like shared walls, and noises from the neighbors. So, guess I’d take the mansion, but really don’t want a mansion, as it would be too big for the 2 of us. I wouldn’t mind living away from the city, but not too far, for easy shopping. Actually, I’d like to live in the woods, but near a good road leading to the city, for when we need to go to town.

That’s all for today! Thanks Cee, for the fun questions! 🙂

QUADRILLE # 3 – BUBBLE – “WITCHES BREW”

Standard

“WITCH’S BREW”

Sully, sully bubble and blue

A crash of thunder and lightning

A witch’s stew

A cauldron of sprue

The full moon says it’s frightening

Come, let’s not misconstrue

The crone’s home-brew

The noose is slowly tightening

Sully, sully bubble and blue…

For you?
