WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS SQUEEZE THEM

lemon drop martiniWhen life gives you lemons squeeze them then put into a blender make lemon drop Martini’s.  Life is always a party with a good strong Martini as they say a lemon a day keeps the batty people away. Slice them up for a warm cup of tea, perfectly soothing warming the soul on those cold nights.  Cool them down for a light bite of summer’s delight hanging out with linguini and shrimp. And let’s not forget those delightful dessert tangy tart taste of lemon bars. Anyway you choose to eat lemons are here to stay.

This short is inspired by a slice of sour cream lemon pie.

WHEN I WAS ALIVE

I lied, I said I don’t think about suicide but the truth is I do.  I think about suicide when I close my eyes wondering if I just stayed in this state would anyone miss me would anyone care.  Today was a good day I got bullied twice, once on social media when I posted a photo of me crying.

RED

The power of Red fills my head with hatred and dread. Unlike the color of azul a Noble blue that binds the soul with peace.  It’s not Red’s fault, she’s always been this way. Red is trying not to be so negative, so envy of her friend Noble Blue. According to plan, Red path is sealed with a kiss. Alone in her convictions, Red stands alone on the banks of Crossroads Benny beach waiting for a chance to make a new path to enlightenment. Off in the distant bobbing in the water, bottle but not any bottle. This bottle came a long way containing a message from an old friend.  This friend message reads; “Hear these words, Red you’re not as hateful or dreadful.  Even the coldest of hearts can be undone. Through these inspirational thoughts of love, compassion, empathy and respect can be represented in the hearts of the cold.  It’s never too late for change and growth.”

Love your friend Noble Blue.”

Red with a heavy heart gives way to a warm embrace of this message of encouragement. She wears like a dawn’s comforter, smiling in glee for even the harden of hearts wants to be loved. The life story of Red doesn’t end at the banks of Crossroads Benny, if Red can  learn the lesson and embrace change so can we.

🍸🍸🍸

This short story is inspired by the color Red and what it represent.  Some see Red as a negative, I choose to see Red in all it’s beauty. 

Until next time….

REMEMBER MY NAME

girl-1098612__340Today I am feeling lower than I can possibly go.  It’s shows.  My emotions are compromised and my strength my armor is slowly being chipped away.  With every frown or crossed stare I get from the powers to be, a crack appears on my armor.  If I stay here in this space, I fear there won’t be anything left.  It’s like that situation where you’re in a crowded room enjoying the scene then that evil force walks in sucking all the air and life out that’s how the current work space is.  Here it’s quite clear we all play by a different set of rules.  I should know this by now.  Naivety I hoped things would get better but with each inopportune moment is a slap in the face.  Yes they talk a good game but the truth is there’s no room for growth well if you are me in my position.  With all my experience the only thing I am good for is to sit here answering the few calls that comes through.

DON’T SAY A WORD

couple-in-black-hi

Today I need you to be quiet.  Very quiet, in fact I need you to be very quiet that you can hear the sound of my heart beating.  Thump, thump can you hear it?  Racing so fast you can hear a musical patterning emerge.  My heart beats like this in anticipation of what I am about to say.  Shhh, can you hear that?  It’s the ringing in my ear.  Nervously my reaction to the thumping my heart beat is causing because what I have to say is so simple but true and that is I LOVE YOU!

BLACK AND WHITE

images (2)Dream of colors that aren’t black and white, you’ll get a picture filled with bright.  Life isn’t as simple and neither is black and white. The two goes together like peas and carrots. Contradictory nothing is as simple or as diverse than most colors of the rainbow.  Red for instance you can use the primary colors of blue and yellow as well as secondary colors of green and orange to achieve red. Black is black and white is white there are not secondary colors.  Shocking as this revelation is black and white beautiful than most, forever together til colors do part.  I quite enjoy the views from the top in black and white.

🍸🍸🍸

This short is inspired by the simplicity of the colors black and white particularly in photos.

Be Kind

ROAD RAGE

road rage clue flamesDriving down this road hatred fills my eyes.  Seeing red, I can feel the flames burning inside.  Waiting for that one slip up to release the beast that dances within. Cool as the morning dew sweetly fills the air, still can’t stop this living hell I am in. The more I drive down this dangerous road the more I feel alive and ready to fight.  Lying in wait, to pull the pin to explode. Looking in the rear view mirror I see the road I left behind.  Plenty of rocks left in my wake to over take that turn.  It’s all in the past now as I look forward still reeling with this anger.  Coming to the stop light blinker on left turn, then another left turn pulling into the drive of the fortress of destitute, realizing another nightmarish hell.  Seeing that brick wall I’m about to come crashing into just accepting this is my fate.

HELP ME

girl-1098612__340I don’t know where I am in the grand scheme of things. My head feels like a merry-go-round spinning in circles a never-ending circle. I want to stop, I need to stop but I can won’t you help me.  Everything hurts, every words, laugh and cry is painful too sensitive to act too sad to be happy I need love to light the way.  I am a prisoner to this fate bleak drowning deeper into the sea of void sinking lower than Moby Dick’s occupants.  Not lacking in faith, wishing for a band-aid to cover the scab I’m slowing picking at, screaming in a crowded room with no one looking up not evening giving a glance I’m here with this demon.  A constant companion these days speaks to me in ways no one can comprehend.  Scared no, just concerned that my mind is no longer my own.  Fighting the good fight staying above water in the hopes that one day this dynamic dance will be done.

CALL ME NUTS

Call me nuts that’s okay as they say a nut a day keeps the insane sane.  My behavior shows a level of difference for I am not the same as all of you.  It’s in the mind, my mind running thousand miles a minute shuffling through every idea analyzing every thought.  It takes me time to catch up but don’t worry I will catch up.  In this world my nuttiness is normal, here in this world everything I do makes sense.  It’s only when I’m around this table do I see the dark.  My soul is intact, my verbal skills doesn’t lack the need to be expressive.  All my senses are alive and well thank you for asking.  I’m not sure if it’s the meds or just a good day but what ever this is I hope it stays.  I enjoy the feeling of controlled nuttiness.

SUPERNOVA

Exploding into the midnight sky burning bright flying high, supernova reaches levels intensifying the mind.  All of my senses engulfed by the flames, you stand there with this look on your face as if we’ve met before.  White hot radioactive embers burning brightly through this space lifting levels of an a high then sinking deeper into the depths of the void.  My soul set a blaze my light burning so brightly it’s blinding, the white heated embers reaching every level possible to let you know of the rebirth.  I alike the Phoenix arose from the ash, I’m alive.  Reborn just as in life I am birth, I live and I die. This is my exit goodnight and goodbye.

🍸🍸🍸

This short is inspired by the lust for life.  As we get older the illusion of immortality is fleeing.  You come to the realization that dying is apart of life.  In this world, in this space and time you are birth, you live, you die and you are still responsible for taxes.

Be Kind!
