Clutching at straws

I clutch at straws. I am fine, I tell myself. I will be fine.
Do I believe it? Hell no.
Emotionally I am unwell, unstable, very, very much so.
I clutch at straws in the hopes it will all be ok, and I will get through it. Really though? I am unsure.
But it helps to try to remember, I’ve gotten through this before. I have made it out the other side in the past. This too shall pass, that is going to be my new motto.
And just for today, I will be kind to myself. I will do some self care. I will work on remembering to breathe, I will smile and I will say to myself, I am a survivor.
Always keep fighting! ❤

Bee’s Poem of the Day ~ Shades of Life

Sorry!

I have been off grit or off-blog for a while. Well, at least here. I am hosting “Love Is In Da Blog ~ A Music Festival” on, “The Bee Writes…” this month and last week my husband was off work and we were out and about. And I  have given myself a holiday from writing. You need that sometimes to fill your creative well. But I am back and hope all of you are well and if not have someone who cuddles you! Sending you love and light!!!!

Shades of Life

Love and light

Hate and darkness

Love and darkness

Hate and light

Love and hate

Light and darkness

So many shades of life…

Todays Prompt: Write a piece using the phrase;explicit emotion

tears spill

her eyes leak

as she sits

shivering

shaking like a leaf

it builds and builds

until

its a tornado

explicit emotion

written all over her face

anger, rage

fear, so so much fear

she grips the table

as her head swims

everything begins to blurr

she starts to remember

holding her breath

she starts to cry again

rage disapating

but that fear

the fear of knowing but not wanting to know

what happened to her

is so real

And she thinks

She’s going to die from it.

shirley

Shirley, our host wrote this poem, in response to thinking about her childhood and what happened to her during it.

3 things challenge

Todays prompt: chemistry, blanket, mailbox

wrapping her arms around herself like a blanket
walking out into the cool brisk air
she walks to the mail box
softly singing a tune
would it be there?
The letter from him?
would she feel the chemistry between them
When she picked it up
And read the words?
She skipped lightly down the sidewalk
And when she got to the mailbox
to her huge surprise
Instead of the letter she’d been expecting
There he was
Tall dark and handsome
Gosh he was so handsome
There he was
Waiting, and as they embraced
He smiled, she smiled
The happiest smile
On earth
