Let there be light

The Only Star

DSC_9494

Falling down through life
With nothing to hold on to
About to crash and burn
Not a thing that I could do

As the darkness took me in
A ray of light came through
Love and hope it spread
And took me right to you

Since then it has been bright
There’s no sign of despair
Sunshine in the meadows
Rainbows everywhere

Gravity pulls me to you
I’m losing self-control
Destined to be together
Unite, be one, be whole

Life revolves around you
Nothing else is up to par
In this galaxy of mine
You are the only star

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposites (Attract) 

A beach-ball and a childhood sweetheart; what more could a boy ask for?

Rainbow Request

I’m posting outside of a challenge today. Recently, I posted a photo of a rainbow as part of a challenge (Curves) and a commenter liked it and we had a conversation. It turns out he hasn̵…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners

DSC_3812

I spotted this pair of Przewalski’s Horses on a safari a few years back. This rare and endangered species is native to central Asia and is just gorgeous. Ignoring the vastness of the lush green grass around them, they found comfort in each other’s closeness; partners for life!

Living A Nightmare

I cry myself to sleep at night
Wake up at two, no sign of light
There’s still so many hours to go
There’s still many demons to fight

I try real hard but nothing takes
Memories break open the gates
Gushing in with an unseen force
Bringing my nightmares in their wake

I gasp for hope to no avail
Lungs faith deprived, all senses fail
Try to hold on to something real
Helpless, blinded, darkness prevails

I sense a glimmer up above
With all my might I push and shove
Knew in my heart you’d come save me
And fill my life with endless love

I rub my eyes, the vision’s clear
You’ve gone too far, no hope is near
These demons are now destiny
With that I shed a single tear

I stare into infinity
To see what life would really be
These scars that I have on my soul
Are your one parting gift to me

I only have dark thoughts to keep
Death’s quite a ways, waters too deep
With nightmares on ‘Play. End. Repeat.’
I cry myself right back to sleep

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve II

Original Image

I tried, belive me, I tried, but I couldn’t resist publishing another response to this week’s Curvy photo challenge. As soon as I thought of this photo, I knew I had to put it out there.

This was taken with a very cheap (but reliable) point-and-shoot camera and is absolutely POSITIVELY of my favourite photos.

I dedicate this post to those who don’t own fancy DSLRs; a camera sure is important to capture good photos but nothing beats the beauty of your vision.
