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.
