One Liner Wednesday

Good Wednesday morning! I read on someone’s blog this week that they were having a challenge with the spell check function in WordPress. This funny e-card came to mind to share on this week’s One Liner Wednesday

Have a great day!

Forgettable

Forgettable

When you left
You took away
the morning sunshine
The verdant earth
lay dying and the sea
shrank from the coastline
 
A blanket of darkness
Obscuring and distorting
Enveloping my world
A maelstrom in fury
Whipping, lashing
Emotions hurled
 
Struggling to stabilize
Before drowning
in your wake
Unsteady, frightful 
Clinging to hope
Is this all a mistake?
 
As I wallow in this mire
I realize my error
I gave you free rein
To do as you wished
Taking everything from me
Was I insane?
 
Luckily, I saw the light
At the end of the tunnel
It restored my trust
Meanwhile I now 
only think of you 
if I absolutely must

Song Lyric Sunday – A Kiss From A Rose

As it is Mother’s Day, Jim Adams has prompted us to find a song about Mom/Mothers/Flowers for Song Lyric Sunday. This week I am choosing A Kiss From A Rose by Seal. It is one of those songs that puts me in a place and time. I happened to be visiting my mother in England when it became popular. So I have pleasant memories for this Mother’s Day!.

Hope you enjoy this version from the Batman Forever movie. The quality is better than the original official video.

 

A Kiss From A Rose - by Seal
Lyrics


There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea
You became the light on the dark side of me
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill
But did you know that when it snows
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen?
 
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey
 
There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain
Baby, to me, you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny
Won't you tell me, is that healthy, baby?
But did you know that when it snows
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen?
 
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey
 
I've been kissed by a rose on the grey
I've been kissed by a rose on the grey
And if I should fall, will it all go away?
I've been kissed by a rose on the grey
 
There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain
To me, you're like a growing, addiction that I can't deny
Won't you tell me, is that healthy, baby?
But did you know that when it snows
My eyes become large, and the light that you shine can be seen?
 
Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you, the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey
 
Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey
Ooh, the more I get of you stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey
 
Now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the grey

Lost

Lost

Little boy
What are you doing?
Are you hiding
from someone
or just fooling?
 
You are lost you say
as you look through tears
Let me help you
We’ll find mommy
no need for fears
 
You were playing
hide and seek
with your siblings
You forgot how to count
so, you decided to peek
 
No one was there
and off you went
calling out loud
not finding anyone
as if you lost the scent
 
It felt like forever
you were searching
No one came to get you
Scared and now hungry
Night time approaching
 
Voices in the distance
Brought hope to his heart
Parents screaming joy
Their boy had been found
Never again to be apart

Crosshairs

Crosshairs

I am innocent, yet
you raise your eyebrows
and shake your head
I saw you pull a face
thinking I didn’t notice
It’s what you do
never what I said
 
I am in the crosshairs
Second time this week
I looked the wrong way
or maybe said something
you didn’t want to hear
You are bad-tempered
and one of us will pay
 
Always an excuse
to justify your mood
it’s this or it’s that
How convenient! 
What is obvious
as always
it will end in a spat
 
Innocent but guilty
I never look for a fight
Yet I get to bounce
off your personality
zig zagging like a pinball
until I am dizzy
and then I’m trounced
