10 for Tuesday = ten word story #5



“While keeping mom awake,

she runs marathons in her sleep.”

nighttime brings words spoken

only in the dark ~ etched in tears

by voices past and present.

each chapter bleeds the same ~ ~

line after line

page after page…..turning…..always…..until dawn



words begin to fade

the night air


as nighttime touches my skin,

my mind fills with desire

~ each heartbeat fuels a need ~

to be touched,

to be held,

to be wanted


the rhythm of my cries fall on deaf ears

~ always ~

on deaf ears


stagnant air

dark voices



at night,

my loneliness

speaks the language of fear

on a bridge ~

they stood quietly observing the city of lights,

as its reflection danced gently

in the river below

it was the end of the day,

all of the lamps were ablaze


the streets were slowly clearing ~

except for lovers walking


holding each other close…

buried deep beneath layers

soft soothing flannel sheets

toasty warm down blankets

never another to share

night after night


these voices inside my head ~

they ridicule

they whisper

they scream

~ always ~

i listen

i wonder

i cry

i wish


i speak

why can’t i do anything right?



night after night

the sky, the stars and wishes


each star in the sky

carries a bucket full of wishes


each night these buckets

overflow with hope


each morning these wishes

are launched

into the universe


they may reach their destiny


become the dreamer’s truth.

dragons, alligators and pterodactyls – Oh My!



all is quiet on the kingdom front ∼

a nice breeze, cool air

enjoying a relaxing flight…


all is quiet in the swamp tonight ∼

enjoying a refreshing dip…

maybe catch a midnight snack?


all is quiet amongst the Jurassic land below ∼

winging it about the clouds…


are those naughty T-Rex’s up to no good again?


I cannot decide – What do you think?

stormy weather


are here

brewing deep

inside my soul

wishing for some peace

peace will never come

until the day

arrives when

i find
