New Poem: Solace

Here’s a new poem I wrote a few weeks ago. Photo taken by me 🙂

Solace

My solace is plague by the noise of your continuous lies ,

And in the prison they have locked me in,

I am consumed by my will to let your memory vanish.

Until they flood me with thoughts of unrealistic promises.

~~~

It rushes through my veins,

How can it be so empty?

when the burden feels so heavy.

How am I letting you divert me from where I was going?

~~~

Am I trapped between two guardians?

Or Am I trapped between two traitors?

I hold my arms out to stop them,

but they had already stepped back twice…Why?

~~~

Is my bidding done,  or am I being held like a puppet?

Jumping through hoops,

falling on rocks,

There are no saviours, just two destroyers.

Mosquitoes: sneaky bugs from the depths of hell

I love animals, but these bugs just keep dropping the ball on me! They’re sneaky little rascals who somehow find a way to get into my flesh, even when I’m wearing long-sleeve t-shirts and long pants. I get it, I’m hiking and invading their home, but what kind of mentality is that? I don’t suck the blood of every person who visits me.

It’s creepy. Seriously, it’s like these female mosquitoes – because male mosquitoes do no bite – are so keen to reproduce that they launch onto their prey as soon as it arrives; I am the prey in this case. They didn’t cover me in bites, but I’ve always had a reaction, so I’m not happy about the itching and swelling. I’m a Type O blood, and they say mosquitoes are mostly attracted to humans with this type of blood. I don’t have high cholesterol nor have high blood sugar, so those two can be ruled out. Perhaps, it’s genetics?

On a positive note, the bites have mostly disappear and it’s been 2 days, so they’re healing faster than I expected :p. Darn in-heat mosquitoes! Unless, I was actually bitten by a vampire?

Hike = lunch time for mosquitoes

I went for a hike today and boy, did the mosquitoes enjoy feasting on my flesh! It was peaceful and a bit muddy, but I had fun :). Tomorrow, I’ll probably be sore and scratching my bites, but I guess everything comes with its ups and downs. Enjoy these photos :). I’ll post more later!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

It’s time for a new photo challenge! This week is all about rooms. Your room can be a comfort zone, and it doesn’t always have to mean a space surrounded by walls. I know I feel safe whenever I’m in my room inside my house, but also when I’m outside with nature (unless my peace gets disturbed by cruel bugs). How about you?

 This one was taken while staying at a friend’s house

These ones were taken outside (as if you couldn’t tell :p)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-second story in Toronto and Niagara Falls

It’s time for another Photo Challenge! Here are some photos for your enjoyment:

 DSC02274

Rogers Centre is home to the Toronto Blue Jays. Basically, the team you want to use as a diversion, when people start talking to you about the Maple Leafs. But, I’m a Canucks fan forever :p! Ontario hasn’t changed my loyalty.

This photo shows you just how tall the CN Tower is.

This photo was taken in Niagara Falls. The photo is a bit blurry, but it gives a sort of fairytale feel to it 🙂

 DSC02787

Everyone who goes in one of these rides have a story; a wedding, birthday, spontaneous family outing. I love horses 😀

I was in my friend’s car and we took her two dogs to the dog park. I snapped this photo on the way. Dogs just love to stick their heads out the window. They get amused by the most simple things in life 🙂

Poetry: Reflecting Ways

57890_438831283479_3311115_n

Why do you wait to fall

to see where your heart belongs…forever

Why do you stand uptight

when you have to look down…never.

~~~

Visions of beyond

live by intuition

forgiveness can feel near

own up to being so fearless.

~~~

Make a way for your enchantments

or what you like

don’t be trapped by useless methods

just make everything alike.

~~~

Fear is undeserved punishment

reflect on sightings

drain thoughts

unlock  the power

pave your struggles with hope

and strength.

~~~

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

*sings* Come on baby, let’s do the twist, take my little hand and go like this. Now that we have broken the ice by singing to Chubby Checker, we can now move on to this week’s photo challenge. The Daily Post wants to know, “What does ‘twist’ means to you?”

Nature is a perfect twist maker. I love hearts and I often tend to find these shapes around nature

Sometimes, your hands and arms don’t cooperate when you’re trying to take a picture, but if you look at the bright side, the results can create a mysterious feeling! The second photo below is a combination of two photos. The background is very much the original and the people were taken from another photo (of the same set of pictures) where two people turned out looking like shadows/ghosts :p.

My random story of the day

Hello fellow Middle-Earthlings…wait, wrong world…Let’s try this again…Hello, fellow bloggers! Hope the week has been treating you great :). As you know, Snow White is jealous of me when it comes to animal interactions (ha ha just kidding). But, animals around here love to appear out of nowhere and do funny things. Like I’ve always said, the leftover food in the trash cans must be good here.

Today, I was walking home from work when I noticed two birds staring at the road. One of them was standing on a garbage bin and the other on the sidewalk. The former just stood on the bin, while the latter carefully started walking to the road as soon as the cars passed. Why? Well, there was food in the middle of the road. What amazed me was that he timed it perfectly, because he was able to walk back as the light turned green and the cars approached. Unfortunately, for his garbage bin friend, he didn’t bring it any of the road food for him.

Poetry: If you were

Image

If you were in my shoes

an opportunity for leisure

you would crawl

but not fall

your soul would thrive for calm.

~~~

If you were to dream

reality will fade

glued to a wall of unopened thoughts

unleashing the unknown

you would pass your route.

~~~

If you were to feel

let mercy wrap your emotions

find solitude but not loneliness

search for the chants of your desires

close your eyes and grow.

~~~

If you were here

would you smile or cry?

your sense of pride would blind

no dreams, just hope,

that may be enough, but for now,

you cannot see who I am.

~~~
