Living Life Lifelessly – Alliteration Challenge

Another piece for the challenge for the week of July 5th.

The Haunted Lullaby

lifeless+girl

Battle brews beyond boundaries,

Heart held hostage,

Fear forms frozen feelings,

Winds whip wild whispers,

Same situation, same story,

Earning early endings,

Order of only one,

Living life lifelessly.

Vaulting Voices – Alliteration Challenge

A fun piece created for the alliteration challenge for the week of July 5th!

The Haunted Lullaby

RabbitChallenge completed!

Alliterations are awesome,

Totally try to top this,

Rather read really radical rhymes?

Words wander while we watch,

Creative catchy chorus,

Dazzling dancing dialogue,

Real resonation – reader reaction,

Building bridges burning boundaries,

Voices vaulting vivaciously.

We were asked to create an alliteration for the week of July 5th on the Beasts of Articulation! This was actually a lot of fun! It reminded me of a piece in the style of Chrissy Strigas who is a very talented writer with a unique style of creativity!

Hope you enjoy this fun piece!

#FieryVerse Poem Challenge – Broken Open

The Haunted Lullaby

Broken Heart Glass

My guard was broken open,

I offered you my heart,

But you took it for granted,

And now I want it back,

Even if it’s ripped apart.

Poem written for the #fieryverse hastag prompted by @Fieryverse on Twitter using the words “Broken Open.” If you are on Twitter, I’d invite you to participate in the challenges as they are a lot of fun.

#Heartsoup Poem Challenge – “Shells”

The Haunted Lullaby

self-destructive

Faded,
Broken,
A shell of your former self,
You betrayed who you were,
Now standing unrecognizable to me.

Goodbye, My Friend

In memory of a true friend…

The Haunted Lullaby

IMG_20140420_171710_438Rest in Peace to my friend Chyna – 1998 – 2015

My sweetest girl,

Loyal friend,

You were always there,

Sharing unconditional love,

Until the end,

Seventeen years is a long time,

But it surely feels like not enough,

I thank you for what you provided,

All that you did,

You helped me thru shallow times,

Always providing a guiding light,

My companion right by my side,

Laying with me each night,

Gentle goodness in your heart,

You and I are family forever,

Even in passing, that will never end.

I miss you,

I love you,

Feel no more pain,

Rest in sweet sleep,

Goodbye, my friend,

In the Elysian Fields,

I will see you again.

This morning, June 27, 2015, I laid my sweet little girl to rest. I have had her for almost 17 years. She passed peacefully. I miss her already.

This is the last picture I took of her on June 26, 2015. This is the last picture I…

Equality for All

The Haunted Lullaby

Courtesy of pinterest Courtesy of pinterest

Love knows no bounds,

Simply limited by the human condition,

Why are we afraid?

Living by antiquated rules,

Times long ago,

Proving attitudes can change,

Up to each of us,

Erase the hate,

Teach a better way,

Let go of insecurities,

Unfounded fears,

For a better day,

On June twenty-sixth,

We woke up today.

For my foreign readers, today, in the United States of America, the Supreme Court, which is the highest ruling court in our country that sets federal law, has ruled that homosexual couples are allowed to marry and have the same rights as heterosexual couples in every state in our union. It is long fought victory for individuals that desired those rights.

Unconditional Love

The Haunted Lullaby

Unconditional Love

I know the day is near,

Time for final goodbyes,

I never imagined it this way,

I thank you for the companionship,

What you brought each day,

Heart filled with unconditional love,

A shining light through the darkest of days,

I know my actions are right,

But guilt stands in the way,

I know I have to do this,

I want to say I am sorry,

But I know I’m freeing you from pain.
