Flying in the Dark

Published June 20, 2014 by violetdragonlady

The black dog,

The demon in the fog,

The Dementor, that sucks out your soul

The darkest night,

The stealer of light,

The beast you cannot control.

Circling the drain,

The unseen pain,

The shadow that used to be you.

At the end of your wits,

In the depth of the pits,

Not knowing if you can get through.

Feeling a freak,

For being so weak,

Life is just a charade.

Thinking you’re dumb

For being so glum

Not keeping up, the masquerade.

No more acting the clown

When you’re feeling so down

But admitting it really stings

No more saying ‘I’m fine’

With a big glass of wine

The truth will give you wings.

I Guess the Dragons are still hungry

Published April 30, 2014 by violetdragonlady

So a while ago I wrote THIS about my insomnia. At 4am in the morning I am pleased to announce I still have it and not only that I’m bloody well sick and tired of it. Friday evening was the last time I slept properly (after a sleeping pill). Since then I have been awake all Saturday night till 10am Sunday morning, Most of Sunday night, most of Monday night (despite a sleeping pill) and now again tonight. A few weeks ago it was toothache keeping me awake and now it’s this Bloody itchy rash.

OK so I guess it proves I am a dragoness and I’m just shedding my scales, they look like scales, feel like scales and are as itchy as hell. The steroid cream has helped the appearance a little and reduced itching but…..

The Dragons must still be hungry, I guess eating sheep just isn’t enough for them, maybe I should go out and find some tasty virgins, although not sure I’d find any round here. The dragons must also be nocturnal, maybe they’re vampire dragons – or hunt vampires?

Not seen any sparkly vampires for that matter either, guess the dragons have already eaten them. Personally speaking I’d much rather eat chocolate than vampires or sheep (saying absolutely nothing about eating virgins). Trouble is both hubby (MasterofDragons) and I are chocoholics so we don’t buy it that often, and when we do it doesn’t last very long at all. Just wondering what the hell I can feed the dragons to put them (and me) to sleep. Just had a bowl of crunchy nuts (kelloggs cereal not the other sort of crunchy nuts)

Hoping the antihistamine kicks in soon so I can try to get to sleep before the birds start there dawn chorus, although having said that I normally hear them before I get to sleep anyway – perhaps a recording of them playing when I first go to bed might help.

I had started writing a blog on St Georges day about how awful it is to slay dragons, perhaps I’ll finish it tomorrow, perhaps being slain is the only way I’l get any sleep.

Sometimes

Published April 10, 2014 by violetdragonlady

Sometimes I cry

For the chances passed by

The opportunities missed

Wrong frogs that I’ve kissed

Sometimes I smile

Because once in a while

Things do go well

And I feel so swell

Sometimes I scream

In the middle of a dream

And awake to reveal

This nightmare is real

Sometimes I sing

But that’s not a good thing

As I can’t strike a chord

Except nails on a board

Sometimes I’m sad

About everything bad

Though I want to fix

I can’t find the right mix

Sometimes I fly

So high in the sky

I can see it all

And it seems so small

Sometimes I sleep

Just so I don’t weep

I wish I didn’t care

Because life is unfair

Sometimes I love

The clouds up above

The mystical shapes

Help me to escape

Sometimes you see

It’s hard being me.

And it’s hard to be you

I do know that too.

Love is love, on LGBT issues today

Samstar Speaks

I recently had a debate with a friend concerning LGBT issues today and wether in the present day we finally have equality.  I submitted that while there has been progress in recent years in recognising LGBT rights there was still a long way to go in order to achieve true equality. My friend on the other hand stated that ‘we’ now have same sex marriage and that sites like Facebook now recognise different types of gender identification, as a consequence we now have equality and the battle to recognise gay rights has been achieved. In addition there was little if anything left to change.  I strongly disagreed with this, while I am extremely pleased with the recent steps forward, I believe it is naïve to believe there is nothing left to change.

In order to illustrate my reasons why, I believe it would be useful to tell you a little…
