Anxious Are The Dead

You came to me last night.  It’s been so very long since such tenderness with a beautiful smile has sought me out.  I saw the love in your eyes. A love promised to so very long ago swearing to be forever true for always. None-the-less, to see you once more was a welcomed distraction.

It’s been too long. Seeing you there teasing with your eyes has resurrected a hollow heart.  I longed to speak with you, to touch you but the chance fate wouldn’t allow. Instead you faded into the crowd and I allowed it to be so. Perhaps I’m frightened of things that might be said. Or maybe I’ve forgotten how tender you once were.

I must apologize for that.

Here you’ve come such a long way to grant me your precious smile only to be compensated with the vulgarities of dreadful memories. Yet you appear once more before the conclusion and my souls elated,my senses quickened.

Thank you.

Oh my love how I miss you so. Life has been such a burden since I last saw you. Why can’t I dream of being in your arms while listening to the heartbeat that once soothed? These lucid images quickly become clouded making it difficult to focus on your angelic face. Chaos surrounds when serenity shines straight at me and yet I’m unable to bask in its glory.

If there is a next time, please take my hand. I want to feel some part of you, if only for a moment to prove your existence once graced this orb called home. You completed me and now I’m left here alone and broken into irreparable pieces imploring to be fixed. But the debris is so fragmented that is unlikely I’ll ever be a whole again.

Last night comforted a restless mind now that I know you wait for me. If truth be told, I don’t wish to hold on any longer. Life without you is torment and isn’t living at all. It’s too hard. With you, it was never hard. Contentment is pretend and it’s becoming more and more difficult with each passing hour. Soon there won’t be enough left of me to care.

You are gone, taken right before mine eyes. And life, well hard or not, life goes on.

Please visit again soon, my love. Yes, it is bittersweet but most welcome on this mundane journey. It is you that I covet. My husband. My lover. My best friend.

With all the love that I have…..

Since memory serves, there has been a pen or pencil in Shell’s hand as she composed thoughts, ideas, and dreams. Growing up in a small farming community, she yearned for adventure that wasn’t accessible in a place surrounded by wheat fields as far as the eye could see. Subsequently, she read and fell in love with books.

Reading made it possible to travel to far away lands, different time periods, and alternate realities. Those escapades that’d been unveiled, fashioned a longing for her to write.

Shell writes for magazines and blogs. Her articles are published in a number of magazines including Meridian Life Magazine. She’s written copy for Todayz Publishing Idaho Hunting & Fishing Guide, creates resume’s and cover letters for clients, and ghost writes diversified essay’s.

As an author and a poet, Shell creates captivating short stories and eloquent poems. She participated in this year’s 2014, NaPoWriMo challenge and discovered a hidden talent for poetry. Nearly tripling the traffic to her blog, she now composes poetry.

Her work includes, but not limited to:

  • Features with reference to extraordinary people and businesses
  • Adventures for the family
  • Historical expositions’
  • Educational editorials of health, nutrition, beauty, and travel
  • Short stories
  • Write copy advertorial for hotels, restaurants, campsites, recreational parks, museums, historical landmarks, and clubs.

“I’m a true realist who has learned no matter what you may want in life, you must work for it. Nothing in this world comes easy or cheap. Nonetheless, if you want it bad enough it’s all worth the effort.” ~ Shell Ochsner
