Scribblings Vol IV

The problem, you see, with this life of mine
Is it’s bloody challenging all the time,
Nothing follows the routes I’ve designed,
It’s like trying to turn water into wine –
Which (now I mention it) I wouldn’t mind,
In fact, that’d actually be just fine,
Cause though my woes wouldn’t be redefined,
At least I’d be splendidly drunk all the time.

If Cthulu comes for tea,
Don’t serve him calamari
For I’m sure you’ll quickly find
He’s not that way inclined –
in fact, if I were you
I’d leave off the sushi too
or he might loose his noodle
and use his chopsticks to do
something gruesome to you.
(Inspired by #microprompt ‘Find’)

Flattery does not soothe the soul;
It merely embalms a wounded ego.
One needs a more absorbing lotion
to mend the rends of intense emotions.
(Inspired by #TLPoetry prompt ‘Lotion’)

Your imagination
is what transforms
the impossible into
the improbable.

And your determination
is what will turn
the improbable into
the norm.
(Inspired by #DimpleVerse prompt ‘Impossible’)

Dear TARDIS, quo vadis
in such a hurry?
You’ll upset the equilibrium
in the space-time continuum,
And give me a dicky tum –
So just take it easy!

Our love is like a Russian doll
Or perhaps it’s like a Tardis,
For it seems that the deeper that we go,
The greater it is from where we started.
(Inspired by #IntrigueVerse Prompt ‘I Carry Your Heart With Me’)

They say beauty lies
in the eyes of the beholder…
But –
That which you can’t see
can be far bolder,
And more alluring
than the blurred and erring
surface of that person
would have you believe.
(Inspired by #DimpleVerse prompt Unknown Depths)

Sometimes, it seems
as though my dreams
are like whale song;
a long, melancholy sound
that drifts around
my mind,
Desperately
trying to find
a way home.
(Inspired by #lionsighs prompt Mind’s Deep Ocean)

Easy come and easy go;
Just let the inspiration flow,
It makes no difference where it goes –
What it discovers, what it shows,
What it’s flux may juxtapose,
If it’s discourse overflows
and forces your thoughts into prose,
Just follow where the story goes
and let your ideas flow.
(Inspired by #MadVerse prompt ‘Easy Come And Easy Go’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
