Chapter Seven: Bed of lies

I could tell it was going to be a long dinner the moment Amanda showed her face. It was Nathaniel who stated she was part of the family and no one would have as little as a spoonful of soup unless she was in her seat at the table.

When the driver fetched her, Amanda came in with an aura that could be distinguished from the one I was familiar with. Her bitterly antagonistic demeanor bore the power of horror. It almost had me like a farmer who saw a cloud of locusts dangling in the sky. What did her friends do with the calm, collected Amanda?

I counted the topics that might come up tonight, prepping in my head the impeccable reactions and comments to each; my whereabouts throughout the past week, Nat’s emergency mission at Dearborn, Michigan, the state of Leo and Amanda’s…

“Art is highly subjective…”

Shared by definitely NOT an “arty-farty airy-fairy”

Creative Kiwis: "Write, Create, Innovate"

Art is highly subjective. If everyone likes it, its probably not very good. The best art pushes boundaries. In many ways, youre an artist, and a particularly bold one these days.”
from a NZ Herald “horrorscope”

“Be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid.”

MENU OF DREAMS

Bits of things that pop into this mind.

I cannot have you in the flesh

But I can have you in my head.

Imagining bliss, what a merciful gift. 

Is it a sin?

Taking you into my dream.

Creating every scene so perfectly.

Where everything is what I’d hoped it would be.

It easies the pain of not knowing your touch when I awake.

Dare I look you in the eye.

Knowing what I’ve dreamt inside my mind.

Until tonight.

When I decide,

what I’ll be having under the moonlit sky.

Eyes; what do they say?

Hi Kavya

Thanks for another follow(s) …and/or like(s)

I just realised my days are determined and lead down paths from the feedback by my readers and followers around the world, like you. So thanks for the input.

All your comments and feedback encourage (greatly), uplift and even inspire me to follow “this road less travelled”.

I love my days “interacting with you’ guys and gals”

Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams

Poetry, Art and Quotes

I see, I watch, I look, I roll,

I give comfort ; to my soul,

I blink, I wink,

I’m disappointed , I sink.

I may be shy , I may be expressive,

I may be anxious , I may be aggressive.

I cry and tear,

I water and wear,

I scream , I glare

To the world I stare

But nobody here; seems to care.

A twinkling me , gives a pleasant feel,

But look into me; are you real or reel?
