Yes, yes, I AM aware that I look like an idiot! I didn’t choose the garb or the flipping unicycle but they were the only things available (except for the playing cards) when I awoke naked and afraid in this strange place.
Oh well, at least the stripes are vertical. And yes, ya jerk I did consider leaving off the hat but its kind cold and it will help keep the chill away. You do see the fog, right? Is grey and damp and dark here
By the way, it took me hours but I finally broke out of the dungeon. I was fully expecting my abductors to be waiting to pounce but no one was around.
I have no idea where I am but there has to be some way out of here. BUT, just in case I’m using these cards in lieu of breadcrumbs.

The promise I had made myself to resist him
was as insincere and insecure as a granny knot
Already, I could feel the blush rising to my cheeks,
feel my blood simmering, my breath quickening
as his finger slowly swirled and looped
drawing invisible arabesques up my bare leg
he dared to proceed up beneath my skirt’s hem,
dawdling there on my inner thigh
devilishly defeating my defenses
willing myself not to clutch at his hand
and urge it higher still
I closed my eyes,
felt them pulsing there within their sockets
and took slow, measured breaths
as his fingers traced the patterns in reverse
his boyish grin and twinkling eyes
penetrated my hard earned armor
and made it impossible to resist him
released! no longer must he suffer in this living hell
his soul has broken free from his emaciated shell
his time on Earth is over without a single word
his spirit now is flying as if a wing’ed bird
as a phantom limb
I can only imagine
the warmth of your love
dancing beneath the moonlight
she is free, to be
I’m pleased to know that in this parallel reality
I no longer tend to fade into your background
in fact I am a strongly desired commodity
you may think its all smoke and mirrors
but i tell you people are downright awestruck
you are too if you were to tell the truth
though you don’t have the nerve to spill it
absolute, true and boundless
is Mother Earth’s love
she nurtures all in
a universal embrace
will you love her back?

Janey over at Cupid or Cats (if you have not met this very funny lady go check her out HERE )
put me on the spot challenged me and I’m going to attempt to rise to the occasion :).
The challenge is to write ten lines, four words to each line, each containing the word love and nominate ten others to join the challenge. Sounds pretty simple, right? Right?!
Always looking for love
Thought you found love
That love wasn’t True
You mourned love and
tried to “love” you
But what IS love?
What’s love to you?
To ever find love
you must define love
love may find you
Oh! And as far as the nominations go…you know I’m a rule breaker soooo..
I nominate YOU!
That’s right, if you are reading this, right now…
you have been challenged to Spread the Love!! Get right on that, will ya?!
