One Beat

couple.jpgTime stood still
When we’re together
This emptiness inside, you fill
And I couldn’t get better

Fate may be cruel, unfair
Yet you break through it
With iron will
Faced it with good intent

Truly, you are beyond compare
I always want you near
Whisper my name softly in my ear
Take me to places I’ve never been

Dance together in the rain
Hold each other amidst pain
And whenever we’re apart
think that our heart beats as one

My Monthly Memories: August 2K17

mmm1

 

It has been about four months now since I landed a full time home based job as a Technical Support/Sales and it’s been about that period that I haven’t written any article in this blog aside from this monthly blogging event, #mymonthlymemories. A big shout out to a pretty blogger, Basant She of The Socially Anxious Extrovert for coming up with such an amazing idea of making a journal in one’s blog in at least once a month. I would be delighted for you to read other’s entries and more if you’d join us as well. For instructions, kindly click here.

Timing has never been this cruel. Every attempt of doing things right within my perceived time frame is not working for me these days. This is just so ridiculous and unfair. I am having difficulty understanding what the universe is trying to tell me.

Good timber does not grow with ease.
The stronger the wind the stronger the trees. – Thomas S. Monson

Truth be told, I am not a patient person. I despise having to wait, especially if it is something that could be done right away. I know we cannot outrun time let alone snatch back moments that passed us by. Our situation last week has been tougher than tough. It was as if all forces in heaven and on earth is in connivance to pin me down. It was awful. Every twist and turn of events, obviously, isn’t in my side. I’m on the verge of breaking down. I’ve never felt so dragged and exhausted, never felt so mocked and helpless.

I love those random memories that makes me smile;
no matter what’s going on in my life right now.

 

 

 

I’m not trying to be funny here, forgive me that this may turn out to be a rant o a way to vent my frustrations with life. Believe me, I didn’t mean to sound like that. I’m not begging for sympathy, I am just being kind to myself by de-cluttering my mind and detoxifying my soul. This is my blog, anyway. I would do anything I can to lessen my burden because my children still needs me. With God’s help and mercy, I know these difficulties shall pass. I just need to keep the faith, hold on, and keep on moving forward no matter what.

Here’s hoping beyond hopes for a wonderful and fruitful September for all of us. Cheers!

 

 

TANKA 25: Last Request

Burn for me will you
As fierce as your summer dress
Melt me with sweet caress
Entangle me now lest I perish
  Red color and numbness in my wrist


Here’s my entry for this week’s Tanka Poetry Challenge. In days of emotional and financial crisis, this is a great way to at least declutter my mind and relax for a minute or two. You may want to join in, for instructions kindly click here.

3Line Tales 40: Lights

Blurry images making me blind
Still, it beacons hope that once left me behind
Finding my soul, declutters my mind.

I’ve missed two Three Line Tales week, I feel sorry about it. And I’d hate myself more if I skip this chance to write something out of this fascinating photo prompt. Looking at it makes me feel a bit dizzy. Yet, I can’t help but tell a brief tale that came rushing through my head. My fingers can’t even keep up with my mind while typing at my keyboard. What a muse!

You may also want to experience the joy and excitement of writing a Three Liner out of photo prompts provided by Sonya of Only 100 Words. For details, kindly click here.

TANKA 23: Faith

Worries fog your mind
When crisis caught you off guard
Life beats you as hard
Until nothing left but empty heart
Faith lights your way, move forward

To cherish the memories we’ve shared
Everytime this season appears
