Another Mothers Day approaches 

It won’t be long now Mother, my dear,

Even though you’re gone and no longer here,

I love you so much and miss your smile,

The way you loved me all the while.
I caused you grief and upset your mind,

I never meant to be unkind,

I love you more with each passing day,

Same old me, same young you, love isn’t the same.
I miss you so much I want to be with you,

One last time to hold you and feel the love,

I’m so sorry I didn’t call round the day you died,

Leaving you alone to fear and cold, I died that day too.

Tabula rasa

Another beautiful poem from a blog newly found. If you enjoy reading it, as I did, please leave comments against the original post and not here. Thank you dear reader.

Everything I Never Told You

image

I always notice the dreamlike quality of
clouds, their soft layers of hazy beauty.

I often see daisies in dry bones.

I dance with skeletons, ignoring the witch’s
brew.

I stick my hand in the boiling
cauldron and call it comfort.

I pay no attention to the clock’s
incessant noise.

I’ve repeated your name so many times
it sounds like an incantation.

When do I stop hoping?

When does your name mean
nothing?

Do you remember dictionary?

I pile on the words trying to
reach your table.

For one moment, I grasp the surface
just as my chair folds but refuses
to collapse.

I pick up syntax from the ground.
Your form takes shape on the paper
only as you are walking away.

I walk toward nothingness
why would I strive for
that which can not follow
me into the grave?

I am becoming Light
a zero filled with luminosity
an empty vessel waiting
to be filled.
I surrender
to the Light of Love.

I look to the wondrous night sky

Beautiful poem and if you agree check out the original blog. As always please leave comments against the original post and not here, thank you.

Bituminary Park

I look to the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond;
perhaps I’m not as far away as they say,
maybe there’s no “there” there, after all;
something outside hides the way,
prevents me from hearing the call.

I look to the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond;
hope is a baby crying for candy
while suckling on mother’s breast –
nothing more;
fear and love war in my soul,
there is no victor,
but the battle takes a dreadful toll.

I look to the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond;
like an ant in a skyscraper’s basement,
my perception is dim,
nothing more than a whim;
faces pass in the crowd,
I smile, move on,
onward, never resting, till journey’s end;
and friendless on that last day,
I die alone…

Interracial Dating – How to Date Black Women Better

Women are all the same? I’m sure that women, like men, are all unique. As always please leave comments on this post against the original blog and not here, love my dear reader is in the eyes of the loved.

Black And White Dating

Interracial dating is very much part of the whole world now. Most men however make errors in judgment when making conversation on first dates. Well here is some advice for you when looking to have an interracial relationship with black women:

Black women are no different from any other women, contrary to popular belief that it is difficult dating them because of their culture. In reality, they are just every woman. They want someone to treat them with respect, want to be listened to, and they want to be cared about – but most of all, they want to be treated as an individual.Black women still are unique in some ways. They tend to be charming and open, be a little more caring and a little less wild. Well this is quite different from other race’ behavior where an not open mouthed laugh is all over the place…

Not a continuation of my story

Why is racism still an issue in the states? There are so many things written pointing to racist behaviour, not least the number of black unarmed young men being gunned down and killed by cops. Barack is not to blame for this, he has no control over the use of deadly force within police forces up and down the US. The fact that race is being made a scapegoat for violence and death by cop is proving that Martin Luther King day means nothing. Black history month is desperately needed to show how oppressed black people are still in the USA.

We have a lesser racist history here in the UK but nevertheless it still exists today. Why is that still true of so much of the civilised world? The answer won’t be found here as I don’t know the reasons for it. I’m just pleased that my mum was a radical for her time and passed her beliefs onto me. My dads family were openly racist and my mum told me not to believe they were right in their thinking but to think for myself.

If someone were to ask me about my friends and whether they were black or white, my only answer would be that yes I do have friends and yes they’re human but colour unknown. After all why would I have friends who care about skin colour when I don’t? Racist behaviour knows no colour so why should I.

The Sun enters the mystical and alluring realm of Pisces, the last stop on the Zodiac wheel, and the ending of the astrological year. Our journey through the deep Piscean waters can stir up a lot of old feelings while also activating our intuitive or even psychic powers. We’re less motivated to do than we are to feel, imagine, and dream.

Someone has finally put down what I have long thought, the only true sexuality is bi-sexual since that excludes no one from the dating pool. Please leave comments against the original post and not just here, thank you.

Peak Stupid

raining musesLesbians: if you don’t include men in your dating pool, you’re committing a transphobic act which leads to violence.

Let’s see how this works for other marginalized groups.

Straight men: if you exclude gay men from your dating pool, know that it’s a homophobic act and leads to literal violence.

Straight women: if you exclude lesbians from your dating pool, know that it’s a lesbophobic act and leads to literal violence.

Not quite as catchy.
