Do You Know?

doyouknow

Do you know?

Do you know the unsaid?
The unspoken?
Do you hear the unseen and see the noise?

It’s like turning towards a setting sun,
Not to chase the warmth,
But to stay ahead of the darkness.

Don’t care…. A chuckle.
Yeah, you care.  You care.

Oh to feel that last hope for the moment slip away.
Chest collapsing.  Hope dying.
Thought you had it right this time….

Let’s give in!  Sink into that bitterness and smile at the comfort.
Slip into it’s smooth facade of acceptance.
Feeling enlightened yet?

What if your support had to collapse?
What if what you were standing on gave in?
Whose fault would it be?

Check with those voices.
The judges’ scores.
Truth?  Fact?

Is it worth carrying on your journey?
Just glaze over it.  A quick bandaid.
That’ll fix it……
Again.


Sometimes, hope can be found in knowing we’re not alone in how we feel.
Dedicated to the ones who needed it said.

Wait a Minute

easygoing

They had already traveled about a hundred miles, and the time now was about 4pm.  It was a lazy weekend day and they took their time waking up, making breakfast, and getting back out of the bed.  She had been hinting to the little list of things she enjoyed doing with him.  Riding with him was one.

He took her to the middle of nowhere, showing her random sights that they didn’t normally see in their city life.  The quiet stillness of an old barn and the stories that once upon a time ran through the deserted gas station, to name a few.

As they sat on the warm dirt road they talked.  No agenda.  Nothing and no one pursuing their time at that moment.  He asked her questions she would normally be too tense to answer, making her blush.  She shared random stories about herself and he divulged those small secrets about himself to her that he figured were insignificant to anyone.

It wasn’t until they realized how hungry they were; their stomachs seeming to start their own conversation, that they rose up off the ground and brushed themselves off to head back into town.

“Wait a minute,” she said from behind him.  He was about to swing his leg over the bike but he turned around and leaned against the bike instead.  She moved closer to him, her hand raising to run her fingers into his hair.  His right hand slid around her waist without a thought and he looked up at her.  No more words were exchanged.   They simply looked into each other’s eyes and said everything they needed to for that moment, last week, and later that day.

When It Comes Down To It. . .

saxintime2

The holidays are here!  Time to give and receive gifts!!  Wait… What?

You know it’s true though.  It’s not even a bad thing, but… What are you giving?  I’m not going to lie.  I do love gifts. *grins!*  BUT – as lovely as the unwrapped tangible item may be, what really means the most to me is that someone spent time to think about me and select something specifically.

Time… I think it comes down to time.  It’s the most expensive gift you can give someone. You can’t purchase more.  You can’t get a refund.  It can come in the form of a prayer or good thought sent out for you.  Physically spending time with you.
Listening to you.  Even putting thought into a gift for you to unwrap.

Time is precious my friends.  Waste it wisely.

Happy holidays to you and yours!!

The Tango

tango2-4000

 

Pulse steady; pumping.
Warmth of the retiring day blanketing over his skin.
Thoughts of fervor and flustered breaths…
Jolted movements and fluid grinds…
Clenched teeth to control peaking.

Air changed. Charged with her presence.
His eyes hidden by the brim of his fedora,
Gaze beginning at her slim ankles wrapped as a gift.
Traveling up, trimming her shapely legs.
Swallowing hard. Still… Regulating desire.

Time in fast-forward.  Had to touch her.
Behind… Lips breathe promises of pleasure.
Fingers tempt and edge her skin to the border of lust.
Her own breath caught; hanging in the air.
Then, like a key, sliding in; unlocking desire.

tango2done

Tentative touches to begin.
Slow…. Movements.
Testing the fluidity of their bodies together.
Twisting. Swaying. Grinding openly and lasciviously now.
Dancing…. Dancing…. Bodies in sync to the beat of their song.

The pace quickens.  The steps are harder.
Pushing her body from him, only to slam back together again.
She moaned at that, but that didn’t stop him.
He only pressed harder…
Pushing her body to a new limit.

She wanted a deep breath. He could see it.
“Hold it,” he instructed her breathlessly.
He felt the tension in them both.  Their bodies perspiring. Ready.
Their dance frenzied as he pushed his rigid body against her soft one.
Again…. Again….. Again…..

“Open your eyes, my love,” he crooned shakily.
“I want to watch you as this ends.”
And there, right there. Their bodies twisted and thrust….
Giving in to the whirl of their bodies crashing as he bent her over backwards.
“Let go darling….” he sang to her. “Breathe”

Tangled

BoundToYou4-4000

The cord that bound
Two lovers, destined
Tugged… Pulled….
Finding their way

Fate?  Chance? Destiny?
Following the string
One step at a time
Avoiding the cold world

Face to face
A tangled mess before them still
Unraveling slowly
Their hands; their lives, meeting….
Entertwining

“How long has it been
Since this storyline began
And I hope it never ends
And goes like this forever

In this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you”

Not Ready

KristyBlog2-4000

There are so many things I have yet to tell you still.  So many things I still want to learn about you.  I want to roll my eyes at you for sticking your crazy straw in my moscato.  Shake my head at you for making me laugh when I didn’t want to.  Hug you because I love you.  There was more to do.  Oh there was so much more, sis…

Kristy Ann Danick-Bloodwyne was my sister.  Not “just” my SL sister… She was a piece of the real me.  More than I even realized.  She was opinionated, and sporadic.  CRAZY… She was crazy…. Mercy.  She loved…. Even if she made fun of you, or, especially if she made fun of you…. She loved you.

KristyBlog3-4000

This woman… I will never know the full extent of the things she could have EASILY complained about.  She never let me ask her too many questions for very long before she switched to something to smile about and be thankful for.

She’d send me random snapshots of her various escapades in SL… God she probably spent thousands of lindens on random snapshots just to show me what she was up to.  I taught her how to use gyazo…. Her shopping budget increased from her linden savings, and I was privy to gyazo videos at that point, of her riding inflatable pool floats and dancing.

I’ll try, Sis…. To be more like you.  Thank you, for showing me how to be hopeful, and loving.  A pillar and backbone to your family.  God I miss you.  I’ve been working on this post for nearly 24 hours now, not sure still that I’m ready to post it.  When I received the news of you, I was setting up this scene to blog, not realizing at the time what it would turn into.  It’s still not perfect enough. I’ve added this tree, planted for you, Kristy, and have out some of the gifts you’ve given me, like the waterfalls and the ducks.

I’m just not ready…. Sis.  I’m sorry for taking for granted the days you were here.
I love you, Kristy.  I’m not ready though.

In Memory of My Sister: Kristy Ann Danick-Bloodwyne

“Although the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day”

-One Sweet Day-

BeGood

The deep frown on his brow gave away the fact that his thoughts had weight.  The kind that begins to weigh on you physically despite no amount of sleep that you get.

It was like he was a branch on a Christmas tree… One by one an ornament was being hung on his stem.  Eventually, each ornament made the branch sag.  Some of the ornaments were older ones with history and memories.  Some needed repair.  Some were brand new and shiny.  Others were heavier than others.  It was like being adorned with baggage.  It was supposed to look beautiful, but the branch couldn’t hold it all up.

He pressed the dial button on his phone and got the voicemail again.  Same greeting message, and he left pretty much the same message as well.  Each one he tried to word differently.  Say it differently.  Sound different.  Maybe being different would get through this time.

Closing his eyes, he saw himself.  He saw himself as all the words that echoed in his head.  Stimulants smoothed the image out if he let it, but he could still always feel what the image had to say like a branding on his soul.  Can’t he just try again?  Would his soul let him?

His conscience was laced with regret and longing.  The unspoken of his heart thumping on his brain.  Being misunderstood was beginning to feel like his sealed fate.
