The Prisoner

I see the key has been dropped
Still I fear to leave my prison

One simply acclimatises you see
Though it goes against all reason

Thoughts of you all through my head
Do I dare to step outside

There’s a rage in the cage
This desire I cannot hide

Just a word is all I need
To transition to free

Imprisoned here in my dreams
I beg of you rescue me

Ice on Heated Flesh (A Duet w/Karin)

Ice on Heated Flesh (A Duet w/Karin)

Karin:

Now that I’ve been bitten by the collaboration bug, I love seeing how duets turn out. Whether it’s one that I have written, or others, it’s always fun to see the results of two people working together, especially when their styles can be very different.

Ádhamh graciously accepted my suggestion to try a Mondo form and I am really happy with how this came together. Smooth as ice cream melting in an ON or NC summer, smiles.

Ádhmah’s styles vary but he always “brings the heat” in his choice of theme, If you haven’t read any of his writing, I encourage you to head over there and check him out at: https://adhamhwrites.wordpress.com/

Here it is and we hope you enjoy it.

It is with pleasure that I bring you another duet with Karin. After completing our first one, she expressed interest in doing a Mondo. Naturally, I felt led to comply. ;-)

If you haven’t had the chance to read any of her work yet, you really should check it out. You can find her writing at the following sites: The Eclectic Poet and Eclectic Unconfined.

Kei’s Five Beautiful Things ~ 1

In this instant I am perfectly, completely happy.
#keisfivebeautifulthings

As balance, normalcy and living without fear have returned to my life, I’ve been most happy to notice the return of my joy in life. The simple happiness that a flower, clouds, asparagus on sale, can bring. I have been capturing them for my personal pleasure but thought I’d share them in this way once in a while.
What has never ceased to amaze me, even in the blackest moments of my life, is how one small thing, can be the thing that allows a better perspective.

Happy Monday all!

Aside ~ Entitlement

en·ti·tle·ment
inˈtīdlmənt,enˈtīdlmənt/
noun
synonyms: right, prerogative, claim
the belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment.
“no wonder your kids have a sense of entitlement”

~~~~~

No one inherently deserves anything. No one is entitled to anything. No one should take what they perceive to be their entitlement at a cost to another human being.

Only two-year olds are “entitled to their entitlements” in their tiny amoeba minds and…

Their temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want…

Don’t hurt, maim and scar.

Just thinking this afternoon…

Karin:

I’m so glad to share this. I love Ádhamh’s style and am so glad he asked me to collaborate on duet with him. We had fun with this one and I think it shows. I hope you’ll all enjoy how we made the most of being “caught in the rain”.
If you haven’t already, please visit Ádhmah’s blog at: https://adhamhwrites.wordpress.com/author/adhamhwrites/, you’ll be be glad you did.
Enjoy your weekend all!

She and I first crossed paths last year when she took part in a Halloween Challenge that I hosted. If you haven’t had the chance to read any of her work yet, you really should check it out.

We hope you enjoy this thunderous piece…

Holding you close just before dark
Some would call us mad or insane
Half naked in a public park
With our hair plastered from the rain
The heat had risen suddenly
What led us to take this chance
Holding hands when first drops fell
I whispered “Do you want to dance?”

You Are The Answer

who is this sleeping angel in my bed
what sweet thoughts curve your lips
where do your dreams take you my love
why do I find the urge to kiss you irresistible
when morning light illuminates you vulnerability
how could I not press my lover’s advantage

… to my every question
