Slow Waltz

Crimson streaks
splashed across the mirrors
pulsing
flashing
calling to arms
the dead and waiting.
Overdoses and murders
suicides and rapes
we await
we dream
of a time when we shall reap.
Moving through crowds of uncaring
stalking through shadows
staining the souls
of those without.
Copper hued threads
spattered
unseen
mark you as my tormentor.
I screamed
I fought
I lost to you
the reality of this world.
I creep along the blackest alleys
toiling on hands and knees
peering feral
waiting to appease.
My hunger.
Your pleasure.
My malevolence.
Your desire.
Twined….
Unparted….
locked forever
in a slow waltz
through the halls of hell.

Quote-Day 3

Once more I would like to thank Kranti over at Sparklingthoughts for nominating me to do the 3 day Quote challenge.

I again was scrolling through FB looking for something that would hit home for me when I came across this one.

A lot of the people that I use to let into my life, though they said they were friends did not have my best interests at heart. They would rather tear me down and make me feel small about myself and my passions than support me.

I have come to realize that the people who love me/care for me/want the best for me are the ones I need  in my life.

I have surrounded myself with friends and family who only want the best for me. Who cheer for me and occasionally kick my butt when I really need it. And I am so grateful for them.

I have saved this quote to my phone along with yesterday’s so I am always reminded that those who love and care for me will always push me to be the best that I absolutely can be.

No drama. No negativity.

Happiness and success. We can all achieve it as we work together.
