Love Letter #2

NaPoWriMo Notebook

How I Love your words!

Your fanciful, glowing, transcendent, effervescent words.

Pass the honey, wink words.

The I can’t breath without sighing, words,

wow!

Yea,

singing in the rain words.

Pablo Neruda could not have asked the time more eloquently words.

and when you listen,

Man

how I long for that too.

I can take on the world with words

and when you don’t

I …

have no words for that.

and I guess you don’t either

anymore.

How to spot a Vampire: Lesson #1

NaPoWriMo Notebook

Lesson #1

A vampire can not see their own reflection.

They can only use yours,

which they will drink dry.

Your laugh,

your sense of humor,

your humility,

your hope,

and before you know it,

it will all be gone.

A vampire will mirror you

and you will actually think you have met your soul mate,

but that was actually just your soul leaving your body,

dancing away right in front of you.

Next thing you know

You are gone

And when they look at you in disgust,

they will forget that they are the reason there is nothing left of you.

They turned you into their image.

And when you look into the mirror

and see nothing

You will know

You just spotted a vampire.

Love letter #1

NaPoWriMo Notebook

Your image never fades from my minds eye.….

Your silhouette, your smile, your awkward words made idealized.

Your strong hands calloused by holding your own heart too high.

It repeats like a scratch in my favorite song.

Imperfections only enhance your strength, and perception.

You learned to walk on broken shards that once was a beating heart.

You’ve learned what words to avoid and which to rinse, wash and repeat.

Because life is like that at times.

As the Moon always follows the Sun, I will follow you forever…

if only in my minds eye.

The Letter Not Sent

NaPoWriMo Notebook
Dear You know who:

I wish I could write you or call you and tell you how much you hurt me, but I won’t,  Because you would ignore it and all my voice messages and emails would become a joke.

I wish you knew how I felt, but you won’t because you don’t acknowledge my feelings at all.

I don’t want to hurt you, and I don’t want to hurt anymore.

So I am walking away.  I wonder how long it will take you to notice.  If you do, I will say “Oh someone must have hacked my facebook page, I noticed my friend count went down about 20 but I did not notice you were gone.”  Because that is what hackers do, cut facebook friends instead of um ….. I don’t know trying to find credit card numbers or something, Oh…. Crazy hackers.

But lets face it, you won’t.

And my heart will grow a little more calloused or …

Maybe it won’t.  Maybe I will go on living and heal.  You will never know.

One thing I know is, you will never know how much you hurt me, because I will never send this.  You will never know what a horrible person you are until someone who means more to you then I did tells you.  Probably allot of other people.

So there you have it.  Sometimes the best revenge is letting someone live out the rest of their life not knowing why everyone hates them.

Hugs and Kisses,

Betty G

Actually it is day 3 of my giveaway and

I already have my first bad review.  Which is awesome!  and no not sarcasm.  I have been writing for what…. since December 12, so less then 4 months, I really wanted to be instantly brilliant, but that did not work out, but I am okay with that.  Because not all publishers can start off with the Bible.  Thank you Gutenberg for making the rest of us look like amateurs.

Oh Boo hoo!
