It was a

strange and frightening night as Halloween night came to an end.

The streets were deserted and nothing was around but this eerie orange fog that just swallowed up everything in sight.

Parked cars on the street were hard to see,it was like something was  coming.

But, what it was or who I had no clue.

What I would find or what would find me.

I watched from the crack of my window shade.

Hoping to catch a peek of what was to come.

Little did I know it had already had found me and was standing right behind me.

As I saw its reflection in the window, I knew my time had come.

As the orange fog swallowed me up and I was never seen again.

Until next Halloween when I became the fog and took my first victim.

Daily Prompt: Giant

The giant hole in her heart

waits to be filled with so many wonders.

She didn’t think the hole would ever be filled.

She didn’t search for the things, she knew would heal and fill her pain.

For she knew she would never find them on her own.

But, as time went by some pieces started to appear and she felt so much more than before.

Yet, the biggest piece of it all still remained unknown .

She doesn’t think it will ever be found and so her hope fades in and out every day and night.

The melody

plays on and on

and in that moment

I’m lost in the music

and my emotions are


As  the words fill my mind

and I’m lost in time.

My fingers hit the keys

and the words fly from my mind.

As the melody guides me to my next piece of work

The words connect me so much I start to change them

To fit the flow I need to feel like this piece is mine.

The melody flows through me like blood through my veins, it energizes me to go

On with my writing as I erase to find the right words that leave me with a smile on my face and, feeling so good I know the piece is good no matter what others say.

Daily Prompt:Rearrange

I rearrange my words in hope to write something great

And sometimes the rearrangement plays off into something amazing.

It’s like the words become real in front of my eyes and connect with so many people.

In so many ways I didn’t think possible.

As each rearrangement of words come together I wonder if they will be my next master piece of words that shock or surprise you’re soul.

Birthday to me.

A day celebrating that I lived another year.

It’s great to be able to have this blog and to be growing as a writer and as a person.

I appreciate all my friends and family for saying happy birthday to me and I’m glad to just have a day to relax and not stress out.

A day of sleeping in and not worrying, feels so good.

Until tomorrow when life goes back to normal and time seems to speed up and so much is going on around me.

But, today I’m in my bubble and I’m just enjoying the view.

You get is what you see

There are no big surprises going to pop out of no where.

My words are what they mean, there are no hidden messages between the lines.

Maybe sometimes I’ll take it easy on you but won’t step back from being me.

I’ll tell you right upfront that I’m nice but cross the line and that’s the only time you will see another side of me.

We all have layers but my layers won’t be a shock to you.

I will give you shivers when I’m around with just one word or one touch.

Daily Prompt: Smoke

Like smoke you came into my life unexpectedly.

You made it hard for me to see clearly, like there was fog always around me and I only had you to guide me through it.

So when it felt to hard to continue this path with you.

I had to fight my way out of the smoke that made me feel like I couldn’t breath or see.

But as I got farther away from you everything was so clear and bright  again.

The storm was over, no smoke left in me and for the first time in a long time I smiled again.

Daily Prompt:Transformation

The night you transformed into a white owl and flew away.

Was one of my favorite nights but,now things are different for you can fly away from things.

And in stuck here wondering my days and nights looking for you or some kind of hope.

I want to transform into something so I can explore the world from a new view.

I would love to be a wolf and run though the forest or be a cheetah and run so fast it would be so hard to catch me.

But, my transformation has yet to come and I’ll wait patiently until it’s my time comes my way.

Daily Prompt:Tiny

Sometimes it’s the tiny bit of hope that helps me see the light at the end of this road.

I walk with my bit of hope every where I go, knowing it will get me through it all.

No matter how big or small my problems are that little bit of hope can blast through it all.

Allowing me to smile and have just a little bit of hope that today will be great even though I feel like crap.

The season of getting sick is surely coming but my bit of hope will get me through.

Daily Prompt: Tiny



when I’m dreaming and I’m running all alone but then you come along  my protector.

At first I was scared of you my gray wolf but now I look forward to seeing you at night.

Your eyes shine in the moon light and I can’t seem to look away.

Your teeth are so sharp and white and sometimes you run through the woods with a silly grin on your face.

You’re my companion and I enjoy our time together. The forest is a big place but I know you will always keep me safe.

No danger is big enough to stop you from protecting me.

The dreams seem to continue on every night and I hope they don’t end.

But then one day I woke up and went outside to get my mail and I saw you on my neighbors sons motorcycle and I knew I had found you in real life.

As I got to know Sean I realize he was having the same dream as me and now finally together our nightly walks are always just nice.

Safe when holding your hand as we walk on the trail  that leads to a wooded area, I never sense danger or fear anything for I know I’m safe with you.
