Attacking Life with Comedic Jaws of Sarcasm. Recovering Dating & Relationship Blogger - Made it to Step 12 When I Got Married.

Bloggie Poetry Day!!

Last year on February 2nd, Reya inspired us all to participate in the Silent Poetry Day. This comes, knock on wood, at an excellent time for me, since, knock on wood, everything in my life is going so incredibly well, knock on wood. I have never been so happy with the Big Three – Work, Home and Romance. The dogs are healthy. Gloom and Doom are in good spirits. My brother and sister-in-law just had a healthy “Baby Number 2,” and my other brother is doing well also. And Sherlock. Well, I just love Sherlock. So, just like last year, I’m going to post the lyrics of a song that applies to how I’m feeling.

So all of you, have a scandalous weekend. And, here we go:


Life is a moment in space, when the dream is gone, it’s a lonelier place.
I kiss the morning goodbye, but down inside, you know we never know why.
The road is narrow and long, when eyes meet eyes, and the feeling is strong.
I turn away from the wall, I stumble and fall, but I give you it all.
I am a woman in love, and I’d do anything to get you into my world and hold you within.
It’s a right I defend over and over again, what do I do.
With you eternally mine, in love there is no measure of time.
They planned it all at the start, that you and I live in each other’s heart.
We may be ocean’s away, you feel my love, I hear what you say.
No truth is ever a lie, I stumble and fall but I give you it all.
I am a woman in love and I’m talking to you.
You know how you feel, what a woman can do.
It’s a right I defend, over and over again.


Oh my. Did you just yack? Yeah. Me too a little. When did I get so sappy? I might have to go punch myself in the face now.


  1. Reya Mellicker

    You’ve painted up your lips
    And rolled and curled your tinted hair
    Ruby are you contemplating
    Going out somewhere
    The shadow on the wall
    Tells me the sun is going down
    Oh Ruby
    Don’t take your love to town

    It wasn’t me
    That started that crazy Asian war
    But I was proud to go
    And do my patriotic chore
    And yes, it’s true that
    I’m not the man I used to be
    Oh, Ruby I still need some company
    It’s hard to love a man
    Whose legs are bent and paralyzed
    That my wants and needs of a woman of your age
    Ruby, I realized
    Oh Ruby
    Don’t take your love to town

    She’s leaving now cause
    I just heard the slamming of the door
    The way I know I’ve heard it
    Some 100 times before
    And if I could move I’d get my gun
    And put her in the ground
    Oh Ruby
    Don’t take your love to town
    Oh Ruby for God’s sake turn around

    My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
    Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
    If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
    If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
    I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
    But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
    And in some perfumes is there more delight
    Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
    I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
    That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
    I grant I never saw a goddess go;
    My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
    And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
    As any she belied with false compare.
    ~ William Shakespeare
    (translation: beauty and love are in the eye of the beholder)

  10. LMNt

    Heh… when’s the wedding?

  11. Meghan

    I’m so completely happy for you and yet so utterly disgusted at the same time. 🙂

    You just worry about the happy part.

  12. Not So Little Woman

    hmmm!! love the lyrics and love that you are so happy.

  13. Fencer4

    You got so sappy somewhere around 1/17/07, since you asked. Enjoy it. Bask in it. Roll around in it and don’t forget to take a moment to commit the feeling to memory.

  14. Red

    You deserve it all!


  15. quentin

    That was you yacking? I thought you were just trying to make the high notes sound all throaty.
    Plus: William Shakespeare? I’m pretty sure he stole that Nothing Like The Sun sonnet from Gordon Sumner…

  16. Lila

    I’m gonna puke…quoting song lyrics is tedious.

    I’m glad you’re happy though, it’s a great thing for anyone. 🙂

  17. QueenofPreen

  23. Comment Mercenary

  24. Comment Mercenary

    And we’re back. I’ve broken in and I am holding these comments hostage. I will check back in with a list of my demands, including but not limited to a lifetime supply of white chocolate Reese’s cups and Mountain Dew.

  25. Velvet

    I’m willing to give you your Mountain Dew, but we’re gonna scrap on those Peanut Butter Cups.

  26. circumlocutor

    Nice work, Velvet.

    Can I post some poetry I penned in the sixth grade?

  27. Comment Mercenary

    You don’t want to scrap with me! I’m armed with… um… this and this. You can clearly see I’m not messing around.

    I am adding to the list of demands 2 packages of Orbitz cinnamint gum, 1 condom, $.47 in pennies from 1996, and one rodent of unusual size.
