    Hide me…

    Scrunched in a corner thinking, “where is he?” Darkness all around yet I felt I could not hide. Afraid to move. Afraid he would find me. This was written for a Write On Edge writing: Compose a text–160 characters–that would either elicit or express fear

    (Un)Freedom

    To help keep me writing, I joined The Red Dress Club (TRDC) now known as Write on Edge. It’s been a while since I’ve done some creative writing. But this week’s prompt is pretty simple and quick. Since lil man is still sleeping this morning I had a little time to participate this week. This week’s assignment was simple: write a story of your choice. The catch? Write it as a tweet. Use only 140 characters – including spaces. Here’s my story: The challenges of life takes its toll. One day full. Next day dull. Just want to be free. No responsibilities. See the world & be care free.

    Why do I write?

    I’m writing this because of the “Why I write” prompt from The Red Dress Club and because I just haven’t written anything for TRDC in a while. I’ve been…. unmotivated. In fact, I didn’t even realize what day (or date) it was this morning until I turned on the “internet” on my phone and read some tweets. I’ve been writing since childhood, but I never really put much thought into why I write.   I write To open the drain To release the pain To feel past the fear To remember all I hold dear Not to tell But to remind others there’s more to life Than sadness and strife  …

    Sunny with a chance of…

    It was a beautiful summer day. Eighty-eight degrees with a light cool breeze. No humidity. No stickiness. Almost too good to be true. The weather is simply gorgeous, Rebecca thought to herself. Looking out her living room bay window she decided it was a great day to take the kids to the beach. She finished her last sip of tea, went to wash the dishes and clean up the breakfast nook. An hour later, she and the kids where packed in the car heading to the beach. “Which beach are we going to Mom?” asked Landee. “Bellevue. It’ll be nice there and not too crowded.” Then in his sweet innocent…

    Red Writing Hood – For Sale

    Stanky socks for sale Omigosh. There THEY are again! Why do I have to come home every night to them? After a long day of work, when I walk through the door, these stanky old socks are not the first thing I want to see next to the front door! As I look around for my husband the next question I ask myself is, “Why does he have to leave his socks here?” No one in the living room. No one in the kitchen. No one in the dining room. “Anyone home?” I scream. A couple minutes later, I hear the toilet flush in the upstairs bathroom. “Hi Hunnie. How…

    To my Valentine

    This Valentine’s Day is a special one for me as I have two Valentines this year. To the love of my life 14 years you’ve been here You’ve given me strength to bare All these crazy years Taught me to live and laugh To make me enjoy the days And understand the ways To share in the joy Of all the things I hold dear You are my knight in shining armor We’ve had our ups and downs I’ve had many smiles and many frowns Through it all you’ve put up with me You’ve fought through my insanity my highs my lows And all I can say is Thank you…

    Lady Bloggers Society Writing Challenge: TGI Friday!

    In an effort to keep myself blogging at each of my blogs I went searching for blogging challenges and found a few. This one is The Lady Bloggers Society‘s writing challenge. Today’s writing assignment is T-G-I-F – Why this week has been a challenge…so here goes. As I mentioned earlier, I have a few blogs. Pui Pui Photography (for my Photography business), Yippy Momma, and a Blogger one where I write poetry or anything else that comes to mind. Why so many blogs? I’m starting to wondering myself. I initially thought it would be best to keep things separate. Especially Yippy Momma and my Photography Blog because my Photography blog…

    Life

    For a friend…. Life kicked my ass today And every day In every way Some days Life kicks my ass Other days Life just laughs at me Life is the biggest bully I’ve ever encountered And I’ve been bullied by a lot of people But no one has kicked my ass the hardest than Life I try to ignore the insults and just walk on by Like my momma taught me I’ve tried to kick Life’s ass Like my brother taught me I may win a small battle or two But, in the long run Life wins the war Life doesn’t care about my feelings Sometimes I think Life just…

    Why?

    I wrote this for a friend who wasn’t able to express their own feelings to their significant other Why do you say you love me But show me only anger? Why do you say you want me But throw me away like rubbish? Why do you say I’m your one and only But seek comfort from other people? Many years have come and gone And yet I am still here Standing by your side Covering your weaknesses Accepting your habits Looking the other way when you falter Many years have come and gone And yet I have not left Standing here, my feet held still in my steps Covering my…
