Solace on Paper
So many tears cried.
Days drift into nights.
Feeling alone, even
abandoned at times.
Too many years gone by.
Dreams that will never evolve.
Growing older as the days grow
Not exactly knowing which way to turn.
Seasons change one to another.
Now finding some solace in the
writing I do.
Penning out feelings to paper.
Hoping my works will inspire.
For others to find where their happiness
Finding some solace, with this writing I do.
She stood there in front of the mirror.
Beads of tiny water drops inching
down her body.
She reached for the lotion.
Smoothing it over her neck, then down and around her buxom breasts.
her navel to her legs, working and smoothing down to her tiny feet.
Taking down a perfume bottle she mists her body.
sweet smell lingers in the room.
Candles flicker and dance in the darkness.
She slips into a black satin negligee,
which caresses her skin softly.
She pulls back the crisp red linens on the bed.
Now she awaits her seducer.
Obsessed With Games
What is this obsession men have with games?
My boyfriend will sit in front of our computer playing games for hours, when he gets bored with that he will go upstairs
to my son's room, and play games on the Game cube system. Not only does he spend hours playing these games, but he also has
to look up different game cheats on the computer. Then if he is losing, he yells
and swears like a wild man. Like tonight for example, he spent the good part
of the afternoon and night playing different games.
While I was doing all the work like the cleaning the house, doing dishes, gathering
laundry, vacuuming, and wrapping Christmas presents. My son is building a Christmas
village, so I tried in vain to help him with that. Speaking of my darling son,
he has also taken on the gaming obsession; he sits in front of the system for hours during the day and at night. Finally, I just get mad and force him off, which inevitably ends badly.
Today we had one such incident in which he was supposed to do a chore and didn't.
I basically told him that he had to do his chores and take care
of his meager responsibilities before playing his video games. After all he does
get an allowance for which he contributes very little in the way of chores.
He got very upset, nearly to the verge of tears because in his words, "I have to do
everything." The problem is that this year he is taking on allot more work in
school, as well as extra-curricular activities, he not used to the workload so everything seems overwhelming to him lately. The problem is he rushes through his schoolwork, as well as chores just to get back
to playing these video games. So there it is in a nutshell, I have two obsessed
video junkies in my apartment.
I am just glad I can escape into my writing and block out the noise, competition,
yelling and constant adrenaline that is flying around these two obsessed gamers.
