Your 14-2-17 Valentine’s Poem

Love is a word, it’s a verb, it’s a noun,
It inspires and scares, resounds up and down,
It tickles the fancy, It draws up the fears,
It wakes up the dead, and quenches the years,

Love is a word, it’s a verb, it’s a noun,
It inspires and scares, resounds up and down,
It tickles the fancy, It draws up the fears,
It wakes up the dead, and quenches the years,

Reduces grown men to tears, women to sigh,
Children will learn, but til then wonder why,
It bonds up a family, makes friends, It’s the glue,
If untended for, anger, hate, pain will ensue,

Powerful beyond measure, a torrent of feel,
The potential it wields, the fate it can seal,
Poems, movies, theatre, literature, song,
All but mere vehicles for Love to ride on,

Love emancipates, infatuates, renders enslaved,
Love Mystifies, intensifies, rewards only the brave,
Her coils ensnare, her songs they entrance,
And drunk up on love, the heathens will dance,

You’ll find it in whispers, you’ll find it in screams,
In wishes, in hopes, in nightmares, sweet dreams
Love heals the Ill, Love sleighs the dragon
Love carries the future upon its bandwagon,

Always fashionable, relevant, current and present,
Expansive and infinite, priceless, unspent,
Oft unappreciated, underrated, blind and unseen,
Searched for in gestures, expressions, looks, acts, in between,

But Come Feb fourteen, after 365,
What is unseen, forces industry alive,
All these musings above, you know they are true,
But…
They pale in comparison to what I’ve felt, feel and yearn for with You

Unstoppable…

You think you got me

You think you won this round

Well I have news for you

I am not so easily taken down

You’re not the first

There are many who’ve come before

The trick is patience

I got a surprise, for you, in store

Karma’s a bitch

Justice has a special place

And when she smacks you

She’s gonna be wearing my face

For me it’s easy…

I’ve seen many dark hearts like yours

You’re predictably predicatable

This here, is just the pause

The reckoning is coming

You do not think that I am capable

So know this, know my name

To you, I’m Underestimated…

Unpredicatable…

Unrestrainable…

Uncontainable…

As far as you’re concerned,

_

I am Unstoppable

Where’s the coffee? Pfft! Nope. Nespresso please….

Can you bring me my cup warmer, the one with the USB I can plug into my laptop…

Oh, what’s happening on the blog?

Really gotta get into this Pinterest thing… Oh look! A board on boards…

Put some Netflix on in the background…

…No not that one, that’s for the DVD player…

…Nope, that’s the media player…

It’s through the Playstation 3. I know, ain’t got the 4 yet…

Oh wait, I have to show you this Youtube clip…

Lol! And this one… Okay, One more!!!

Sci-Fi, CGI, Animation, Motion Capture, 3D, iMax

No! Wait! Sometimes it just feels like chaos.

Digital Noise

Let’s stop, because in among all this craziness there is actual power!

There is so much connectedness and technology all around us.

We can actually change the world with the power we have access to.

Home of Hope People! There’s a Kickstarter campaign on Thundafund.

Narcissus

Oh… It all makes sense now…

It’s a pathology, Shame for you…

Sorry about the criticism.

Well, maybe not so much.

Now that I know your name…

I understand…

You are lacking.

I actually feel sorry for you.

It’s a real pity it cost so much…

But on the other side life is good…

So it was all worth it in the end.

Because never again.

I’ve learned that you are a narcissist…

A textbook case…

Nothing special.

Just a textbook narcissist.

Won’t mean anything to you…

You are not able to care…

But you are truly empty.

A Lie; Material and Fake.

So spit your venom…

Slay your prey…

You are not as scary as you think…

I am free of you!


If you find yourself in a relationship with an individual whose day is occupied with an over-inflated and dangerously oppressive personality, who does not listen, accepts no accountability and wallows in there own self-importance, who needs constant admiration and seems to take pleasure in putting you down, look a bit further – I recently learned that narcissism as I understood it (vanity) is not narcissism at all.

Narcissists are actually an extreme personality type, a pathologically dangerous one at that, that could cost you more than you know. They are charmers and liars, and ultimately everyone in their realm are emotional punching bags and pieces in their game. They are power hungry and will leave you damaged in their wake, to such a degree that it will take you a long time to recovery. They are damaged people, who damage other people, and will never have your best interest at heart because they are disabled of empathy.

If these traits are sounding, even in their briefness, a little too close for comfort, it may be time to do some homework (there is alot of info out there)…

Identify and step away before it’s too late… Not much more to say…

Morning Break’d

Morning breaks,

It shatters really.

The birds twitter,

“Damn it’s Cold”…

(or so I imagine).


The family rumble crescendos with light,

The day ahead has smiles.

It’s the world through my eyes,

But damn if their ain’t an eskom line running across my tree

(after a Father’s Day which included 9 hours of power failure)!

Happy New Week!
Happy Monday!

Who is the Alien? – DS106 #TDC1616 Daily Create

I’ve really had fun with this weeks movie activity – with some belated posts coming to the fore… I find myself in the stars – Today on DS106 we had to come up with a repeated word poem – mine was rather planetary. And at the same time I had the below perusing in my head in relation to a plot/theme appreciation task that was on the card this week, so there it is, below the DS106 video of course…


Who is this Alien

Who comes to my planet

Who breaks into my home

Invades

Trespasses

And steals

She is a she

Like me

A Mother too

Yet she tracks

And kills

My newly born child

Who is this monster

Who returns to me

Returns to Slaughter

Destroy

And Murder

My progeny

She is pregnant you see

With one of mine

She will soon see

That a mother

Is a mother

Whatever the baby shall be

Back from the dead

Infused with me

She now is Queen

A mother again

But she wants to be

The mother of humanity

At my expense

And of that of mine

She will kill us again

To save her half

But what do I know?

I’m just a Xenomorph…

But really, who is the Alien?

DS106 Daily Create #tdc1612: My Heart, My Love, My Everything!!!

Because today’s challenge was all about sharing what made you happy…

Well wouldn’t you know it, on a day where I was actually wondering if people were picking up the real me through this blog, my DS106 fellowship provides me with the perfect challenge in which I get to share a part of myself that is the most important part… Yes, I’m a family man.

Is there anything more important, any title more profound, than Daddy?

Well there most certainly is, Mommy! Without my love; My Bela; there would be no place for me to be defined as I currently am. The true brains of this journey, she who has opened my eyes to a world beyond my wildest imaginings.

I am the luckiest guy in the world, I have a loving family, I get to wake up everyday and live love. It’s just the most important thing isn’t it? The ultimate driving force, the very definition of what makes a man truly great, the sanctity and the honour that comes with being the patriarch of a family unit. It’s where my success lies, and the security and preservation thereof is where my future flourishes.

It ain’t always easy is it? Life throws curve balls at you all the time, sometimes you are able to prepare for them, sometimes you are not, sometimes they come out of left field like a tidal wave set to wreck destruction upon you as you stand in its wake, sometimes it comes from those closest to you armed with malice and hate – Undeniably it’s love that gets us through those tough times.

The fact of the matter is that true triumph exists within the harshest of circumstance, and life is there to be lived no matter what. The inevitability of the greatest fear within the human condition (as in death) lurks around every corner, it can all feel like too much, but… because this post really is about the but…

Bela, your smile makes my heart sing

My post today, My World today

They honour you, they come from you

My hopes and wishes and drive for our future

They live within your smile

Alexi, my boy, we love you so much

Your growth into the little boy you are

The privilege of witnessing the man you will become

Everything we wished for on this journey of parenthood

Is fulfilled in the delight with which you exist

Ari, our littlest one growing so fast

We stare in wonder, in disbelief, in awe every day

We look forward to getting to know you

We look forward to you defining our big and little brother set

We look forward to the day you say Mommy and Daddy

Just remember that no matter what, say the words that need to be said. Don’t wait for it to be too late. Today for me I had a prompt, so again thank you DS106, but it really doesn’t need to be so. I went through that moment earlier in this post when I spoke about the dark times, that was important, because it is during those times that we most often forget to express our love, when it is needed to be heard the most. This blog really has been a saving grace in terms of maintaining chipper, by being creative, by sharing, but it is here that I realise that maybe I could have said it more often over the last couple of months. I mean… I feel it, I say it, I do it everyday, it is in my nature, but maybe I can feel, say and do it more… I know I’ll start (well I’ve already started) by saying it here…

I love you!

I love you!

I love you!

Those Magic Minds, those Kings of Screens…

Oh if only they had got it right,

Those Magic Minds, those King of Screens,

If only they had brought it home,

So I could rest safely in my dreams…

If Sydney’s mom on Alias,

Irina Derevko of the Derevko clan,

Had found redemption at the end,

I would have been a happy man.

It’s Sydney again, but she from Scream,

It should’ve happened in Scream 4,

The time was ripe for her gruesome end,

Could’ve broken the genre once more.

And oh Lestat, that Vampire fiend,

Tom Cruise had done his part,

Aaliyah too when her turn came,

Round two should have been some art.

But then the horror, Lestat’s not blonde,

And that’s just where it starts.

Queen of the Damned, You failed me!

You’ve really hurt some hearts!

Now let me talk of X-Men, a Comic Fan I am,

Decisions made aplenty here have gasolined this flame,

But two in particular I can’t get past,

Listen close and understand my pain…

My fellow SAffer, Gavin Hood, C’mon Man,

How could you get it soooo wrong?

Wolverine; Deadpool; Sabretooth;

You’ve fed this sad sad song.

But can’t blame you for the next travesty

Of Chipmunk cheeks Mystique,

A villain? No now a heroine cos,

Jen Lawrence must be with ethi-que.

I now wait patiently for her evil turn,

It better be fast approaching,

Coz now I’m dealing Age of Apocalypse,

Which within my brain’s been encroaching.

_

Just so you all know that it’s not just the current,

I will travel back in time, just to say,

Francis Ford Copolla, with your talented daughter,

You ruined that trilogy’s day.

And finally, for this poem at least,

Because this issue is ever expanding,

Let’s think on the sad song of LadyHawke,

The cursed soundtrack which needed dismantling.

_

Oh it’s hard to admit there’s more to get wrong,

Those Magic Minds, those King of Screens,

There is no foreseeable end to the vicious cycle,

No Safety assured in my dreams.

This is my Tuesday contribution to The Blog Tag prompts on which I am currently participating, a poem, well Duh…

But maybe, just maybe, had I been on the creative team behind LadyHawke I could have contributed greatly to ensuring that that music never got out of the vault, but I was post-foetal back then, and really, Michelle Pfeiffer would have fallen head over heels with me, and fought on my behalf to eliminate Rutger Hauer from the production, and we could have had this (with cool music):

Be Inspired

Bob QuoteWhatever Music you listen to,

May it forever inspire you!

 

If your music makes you wanna flip your hair

And bang your head against the air

Be Inspired

 

If it recalls your Wedding Day,

swaying together upon the floor

You in dress and he in suit…

(Or both in suits… Or both in dress…)

Who gives a hoot!

Be inspired

 

If it guides you upon a chosen plane,

psychedelic with plastic rain

The answers you seek before you unfolding as

Eyes aflutter, speech a stutter,

Be inspired

 

If it quietens and soothes your longing soul

And draws you close and makes you whole

If it works only to ease the pain and hold you sane

Be inspired

 

Whether it’s all about the melody?

The beat, the heat, the symphony

If it’s all just about the cacophony

Who cares, it’s yours, if it clears your bored, just

Be inspired

 

If you cannot hear with your ears of that which I speak

You can find it within, feel your heartbeat

It’s the words on a page, it’s in the smell of the sage

Can you feel it? Right! Now…

Be inspired


As required by prompt, I did write the otherday about how music had got me through some tough stuff, Here’s that post: http://soztheo.me/2016/05/30/madonna-music-madness/
