You would think.

Today I decided to write first  and then check out Linda G Hills prompt for soCs  and find a place for the word prompt in my poem. Feeling ungoverned..


She has got the whole world in the grasp of both hands.

You would think she would be parading about with a  long procession  of New Orlean’s bands.

She has got a future so bright, it sets off her aura .

You would think  this would be enough to satisfy her disorder.

She  truly has it all.

Master of her destiny.

You would think she would be concerned with the ones who see the best in her shabby malarky.

Rave reviews flying about her  in great swirls.

Promises of a journey that  makes every oyster want to be that  part of a string of precious pearls.

She has got a future signed ,sealed and she has promised to deliver.

You would think one would satisfy her yearning for a sense of hedonistic pleasure.

You would think the world should  have tamed her – no  phoenix  bird rising from the ashes  to see  here.

Yet,  you see she is hungry , trapped , ogled at  and  even lustier.

There she goes strutting about  like she has it made.

What goes through her mind would probably make her   appear better suited to a romp with the Marqui de sade

There is a darkness in her that can’t be expelled 

I suspect she has tried to,

but she is constantly compelled.

Driven , fierce, ambitious and demanding to be heard.

She is that raven , gnawing at its cage with ideas of Freedom that can only come from the smartest  bird.

When will she feel her soul dripping in honey?

She knows it is not about the money. 

She can make a difference -she has already  stoked fury from her silenced foes.


Look  at her!

How she  always comes up smelling of Roses?! 

She always comes up  the winner in the race of life’s woes.

Pleasure her and watch her laugh – she will make you seem like the only light in her dark.

You will feel her undivided attention and you will feel you have been counted and made your mark.

You have.

She is conflicted


Mystified by her own maledictions.

She still thinks about singing out her unpatriotic  defections.

Twinkle Twinkle little star.

She is what she is,

as much as you are who you are.

*Feeling irritated.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “long.” Use the word “long,” any definition. Enjoy!

  1. Actually, I find that sometimes irritation does make us spout beautifully and release some tension like you just did 🙂

      • What ? No way! I’m dealing with weird emotions and I got a bit nostalgic last night and I emailed some one and I don’t know if I should have and well. I just wanted to let that person know how I feel and the person hasn’t answered. I feel a bit of a dick tbh. I really like this person – just for being the person that person is. I think I tried to cross a boundary and I feel like I stirred the pot and I don’t know what to say. I don’t want to message loads of times and come across as even more pathetic and the weird thing is my phone has sent 4 big thumbs up signs along with my message. Unless I did it in my sleep but I haven’t been drinking or anything. I know I am married! Gaz is feeling a bit lost at the moment and I am trying to help him. I am doing well volunteering and I have applied for a loan to do my Ma in Creative Writing in Oct 2016. I need to keep my mind busy. I can’t just chill unless you sedate me. ha ha! In fact I am sedated and I still have to do 101 things. I never feel good enough. I do think positively most of the time but I have my moments. So that is what this is all about xxxxxx

        • Aww darlin-self doubt and self recriminations are part of the human condition, but one of the shittest parts of our humanness 😫 My emotions have led me to act on a whim (knobbish is my preferred term!) plenty of times-oh yeah, scrap scrap that. MY WHOLE LIFE!!! Actually I was knobbish and fell out with my psychologist on Friday! so you’re in good company hun! I too have struggled with self esteem which was on the floor low, that’s something I’ve let go of now though, apart from times like yesterday when I’m interpersonally sensitive and feared rejection from you. That was daft! But not your fault or or mine- just a product of faulty inner psychological crap that we conditioned by. The issues you have today are are not forever issues, just today issues. You’re not a dick-you’re a beautiful human with beautiful soul 💜 Have you had a response yet? You have a lot on your shoulders caring for Gaz, he’s a lucky guy to have you and I’m sure he is brimming over with appreciation 😁 The MA sounds FANTASTIC!!! You will kick ass at that, it’s your destiny 🙌 Xxxxx

      • Go enjoy your break. I needed to get shit out of my head and Blogging was the best way I know how to – oh and I had an epic gym session. xxxxx

        • Blogging is tres bien for that, and glad you felt released after the gym. When I used to go dans le gym when I was very emotionally poorly I used to get all obsessive over the numbers on the machines! Totally!! I was counting the seconds, calories etc so the anxiety over that (and my obsession with even numbers) ruined the party for me, duh!!! I am glad I’m calmer these days, I’d probs really enjoy it now 😁💜💙 Take care, massive hugs xxxxxx 😘


      • I know we go through these self doubt moments. Not heard anything and maybe I won’t. Maybe this person doesn’t care as much as I did. That is just how it rolls sometimes. It is what it is. I can’t force someone to talk with me or do anything. I can only try and sort whatever it is I tried to start. That is not to say that that person would want anything to start.But as a human I guess I pre empt shit . I understand your comment. Sometimes when your mind starts doubting you add two and and two and come up with 20 (in my experience) . You are so right, life moves forward and so do people. Maybe I was being top harsh on myself and it really isn”t THAT big of a deal! I am a lucky lady to have Gaz… He is my best friend. xxxx

  5. I can related to the “you would think” theme. You would think I’d have more faith and less worry. I’m slow, but I’m working on it. We’re all works in progress. More peace and hugs!
