Disappear

Screams, so decrepit

Disappear into the light

Breathe, never again

Awkward Moments

book-3406206_960_720

A life riddled

With awkward moments

Passionate

Extreme

So many tales

Tears and laughter

Grief and satisfaction

Photogenic reminiscences of a life endured

Of love suffered

Moments of agony wrapped in splendor

Only awkward felt reasonable

Premature Love

heart-1948970_960_720

Oh how I wanted to love you

Long and lonely like a lost sunbeam

You floated by

Like a wish in the sky

I was blatant and early

You were shameful and  hollow

There were too many shadows

Not enough heart

So we picked up our scabs

Jogged back to start

Our premature nature

Soaked in a private endeavor

Now we’ve bled apart

Bitter Cold (Infected) – from Poetry Through Heartbreak

lavender-1891351_960_720.jpg

Frigid hearts and frozen tongues

The metamorphosis of time echoes

Like a dark and twisted sunrise

It lingers

Inside the dreams of the broken

I went to the crick today

And stared across the edge

I thought of you

And how I felt

My sigh so despondent

The trees stopped dancing

And then the nothing

it stood and stared back

Right into my core

Like a sketchy sigh

Pedigree and 500 Posts

post-milestone-500-2x

Apparently, I have written over 500 posts here on DAMSWriter. Wowee! This blog started out as The Daily Woman shortly after I got sober in 2006 and then become a few other things before I watched a video of Jeff Goins regarding branding.

So, I took a page out of his book and named my blog DAMSWriter. So, here I am over 500 posts later and still not where I want to be, but making deliberate steps to be where I want to be by pretending I am already there.

When I hear the word pedigree, I don’t think of family, or genealogy, or inherited traits. I think of dog food. Whether it is for pedigree dogs or not is irrelevant, but being called Pedigree implies that it is the best dog in town.

I want my blog to be the best blog in town. I want my books to be the best books in town. I want to have to wear sunglasses on an overcast day because if I don’t, people will recognize me. And hey, that is cool and all, but not when I am trying to go to Walmart to buy some soap (hey, famous people need simple things, too).

When I think of pedigree, I think of things that are so pure and pristine that even the biggest microscope could not pinpoint a single flaw in any of it. Bah, now that’s just insane.

Truthfully, I am having a hard time coming up with anything substantial to write these past weeks (if you regularly follow this blog, you may have had an inkling of this based on content) and I am pretending that it isn’t freaking me out. My mind is always turning and sadly, most of it is nothing useful. LOL, I am working on that, too.

Change the way you think and you change the way you feel.

I am giving everything to my higher power and going about my days. ❤ I have faith that everything is going exactly the way it is supposed to go. Because, if it were going any other way, it wouldn’t be my life.

What do you think of when you hear the word pedigree? Do you think of family? Royalty? Pristine things? Dog food?
