“Writing is easy. All you have to do is delete the wrong words” – Mark Twain
While reading this blog, you will find uncategorized written pieces, that were once thoughts that wandered in the grooves of my mind… Some of these pieces are sad, some written in Afrikaans and some, you might even find hopeful in kind…
So… top up that glass or fill up that cup and enjoy the read… You might just resonate and find that little something you need…
Have you ever experienced that unbelievably, revolting and excruciating feeling that comes with being blind-sided by someone you love.
News that tears the heart, resulting in a sympathetic response with blood throbbing through every single part of your body. Your throat tightening up, making breathing hard as hell, along with fluid building up in your eyes – as you attempt to remain strong and hide the absolute shock that you are in.
What horrific happening can result in the activation of the sympathetic system other than being attacked by a lion? Well, adultery, dishonesty and disappointment for one. Which brings me to my next piece :
She’s flipping through photos, taken just the other day… She’d been missing him ever since he went away. Pictures, holding memories that she cannot replace… The feeling consumes her – it’s like floating in space..
He looks at her like she’s never been looked at before… His eyes filled with love, those eyes she forever will adore. She sits there breathing, soaking up the moment for a while… There it is… that ridiculously handsome smile.
Out in daylight she sees clouds drift by… She remembers his first “I love you” and blushes shy. The memories, pouring in like storming rain… In her life, his character’s role is the main.
Closing the album, the images burnt into her mind… That one time love, she was lucky to find. Inside her heart, a flame – that will never grow dim… She saw her true love in those pictures, she saw him.
Again, she sits there, her heart pounding as if she ran a mile… There he is, holding her hand… yes, the one with that smile.
