Shell Casings

Promised asylum is what you offered,

Insecurity made it awkward.

Voices speaking in deprivation,

Believing it was even an option.

Presuming you were the fucking grail,

Pulling my long blonde ponytail.

Consuming my fabricated purity,

Assuming I was subsidiarity.

Ammunition for the betrayal,

Our minds have never been stable.

Bodies thirsting for it;

Trying to resist it.

Looking at me with suspicion,

Mounting me into submission.

Alluring wicked sneer,

Leaving me a souvenir.

Dominating and pulling the trigger,

Forcing me to shiver.

Bullets from your chamber,

Bending me over.

You’ll never be my savior.

Rewarding me with a powerful masterstroke,

Shell casings sailing with smoke.

Crossing the line;

Regardless of you, I’ll always shine.

The "About" me section is the first thing I look for when a blog catches my eye when scrolling through the discovery section of WP. Yet, it scares the living fuck out of me to have to sum up in detail this section of my very own blog. Why? Because whatever I write, you might be hooked or bored to tears. Actually, you're probably already bored to tears by now. So let me get to it then..... By the way, I used to have a blog called Fabulous With Glitches so some of this might sound familiar. Friends might describe me as the life of the party yet secretive. I tend to keep things inside that trouble me. I've been self-reliant all of my life and I don't like to show weakness or that something worries me. Holding back has led me to seek refuge here. I can write out my thoughts and feelings so that it frees up my mind. It seems like my mind is open 24/7 like a gas station and just never turns off the open sign. I grew up in the south and come from the typical opinionated southern christian parents. Well, they're very involved now in church. Growing up, my parents weren't necessarily "present" in my life. They were around and did the best they could I suppose. I'm grateful for everything they have contributed in my life. I know that it could've been much worse. As they say, I wouldn't be who I am if I didn't grow up the way that I did. Gritty is a good word to describe me as well. I've had to speak up and defend myself throughout my life. I'm confident and a bit headstrong. I have two cats and I adore them needless to say. Their names are Franklin and Farrah. Yes, I consider myself a crazy cat lady, what's it to ya? You will see pictures of them throughout my blog I'm sure :) Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by and peaking into my safe place full of random thoughts. XO

      1. My pleasure. I found your “About Me” message orphaned … under “Shell Casings”. Every blogging template is unique, but typically in the upper menu area – inside or next to the Heading Mast there is a separate area for Pages, including “Contact”, “About Me” etc. It may be easier to navigate through on WordPress using a PC.
