Wordlust: The Vulture & The Fish



You can't slip
Heart can't skip a beat
Or the vultures will come in
Their sharp beaks
Gnawing at the weak
Preying on the meek
They use pretty words
Build pretty lies
Break bridges you've built
They wait in the shadows
Are up to no good
You can't slip
Heart can't skip a beat
Don't blink
The whores are watching
The whores are marching in
One, two, three, four
What you had is nevermore
Five, six, seven, eight
They storm through the gates
All you feel they tell you it's too late
I miss what I used to have
Do I have it anymore?
Do I possess it?
Is it within me?
Did it ever leave me?
Never even knew it was flying away from me
My little baloon of feelings
Love
Anger
Hate
Masochistic is this little game we call a relationship
You fell prey
Now I have to pick up the pieces
Or I can simply choose to walk away
Is that even simple?
Simply fuck it all?
Is that even possible?
You can't slip
Heart can't skip a beat
The vultures are watching
Waiting
Scoping out the lay of the land
There is something about this fish
I sit back and I watch
I like this fish
It swims in another's pond,
but I must have this fish
The vulture lusts
The vulture wants
So many other fish in this big stone pond,
but the vulture wants this fish
No other fish will do
This fish she pursues
You can't slip
Heart can't skip a beat
Nine, ten
I may never feel this feeling again
A pond all dried up
Void, desolate
Fish laid to dry out in the sun
Easy prey for the vulture
On pretty little lies we dine
So many other fish in this big concrete jungle
Yet the vulture wants mine

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
