Stranded

Nightmare #109

I often think back to that day and wonder how things could have been different.  I remember the blue skies of the morning, the warmth of the September sun, and the cool breeze that flowed through the valley and into my car window to play with my hair.
It was perfect weather.  
It was the perfect day.

And what if I had made the slightest change that morning?
Maybe took the time to apply some eye shadow?
Maybe paused in front of the mirror just a second or two longer?
Perhaps if I had run back into the house for my earrings?
But, no, I was already running late.

What if I hadn't pushed that snooze button?
But got right up the very minute Katy Perry sang to me?
What if I had taken the time to pray?
To leave a note?
To send one last text?

Now, all I can do is replay all the what ifs and should haves and the maybes.
Going over and over in my mind how cruel time can be;
How being a minute earlier or just another second later would've erased me from that accident;
Would've removed me from that wreckage;
Spared me from this cold metal slab.

And now, I wander back and forth ~ stuck in this coffin of time ~ 
Aimlessly waiting for direction;
Wanting to go back but unable;
Trying to move forward but denied.

Tell it.
Write it.
Sing it if you  must.
Whatever the form, just share it with the world.

Sibyl Vane


"If this girl can give a soul to those who have lived without one, 
if she can create the sense of beauty in people whose lives have been sordid and ugly, 
if she can strip them of their selfishness 
and lend them the tears for sorrows that are not their own, 
she is worthy of all your adoration, 
worthy of the adoration of the world."

Up for Bid?


What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?

Concede and Read.

There is always a certain magic to our books...
A wizardry of sorts.
Like a spell that has been cast.

And when we read, it changes us...
Taking us to places beyond the imagination
And into the realms of wonder.

Embrace the words with your heart...
Allow them to resonate in your mind
To make you rethink what you thought you already knew.

And let these words burn deep into your soul
Feel their imprint;
Drink of the ashes;
And breathe in this new life.
