Grey and Blue Before You

A flat grey day
No hint of blue in the sky
No sign of sun



Illness and decay surround me
Constant reminders
Draining my life
Leaving me



Then I see your face
Your joy, your love
Revive my spirit
Bring me peace
Give me hope

Of a better day

Left Outside Alone 55 (x2)


Hi Chrissy, is Mum there?

Yeah, hang on.

Hello love, where are you?

At home. Why?

Well, if you don't hurry up there'll be no buffet left.

I'm sorry, I don't understand.

It's my Birthday Party.

Your birthday's on Sunday....

Yes, but Chrissy organised a surprise party. Why aren't you here?

I wasn't invited


Laughter and thudding music overhead.

Another of their famous parties in full swing.

Every other weekend everyone piled upstairs to join in the fun.


She turned up her stereo and defiantly sang along.

You can't hurt me!


Inventing her own friends, fighting the lonely tears, pretending she wasn't in her room dancing......

The Sun Doesn't Shine From His Backside, But I bet I Could Beat Out a Rainbow

When we were kids you were bullied.
I said I would wait and catch each of those responsible
as they'd caught you.
They met me en masse at the school gates.
It made no difference, they were dead meat.

Now you're being bullied again.
We're older, true.
Methods may change.
Nothing else ever will.

Bonus 55

Flying Visit

She'd told them many times,

"Nobody messes with my family..."

But they hadn't listened, no, they hadn't believed her capable of it.

That was good, now they'd never suspect.

Bending close she whispered,

"You shouldn't have hurt her ! "

He writhed, froth bubbling, eyes pleading then............glazed.

She stepped over him.

At the airport, she smiled.

First of all, sorry folks, I missed 55 Friday I was feeling a bit under the weather last week and didn't get around to posting anything. Normal service should resume this week, I hope!

I have to thank Akelamalu for bestowing this

lovely award on me, sorry it's taken a while to get around to posting it. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to pass it on, I'll check.

Last but not least, TC tagged me to put a picture of my desktop up. I can't do that but I can show you the background picture....

.....this looks very much like Heidi, who some of you may recall died suddenly on June 19th. I thought I had all the time in the world to take photos of her but it wasn't to be. This picture reminds me of Heidi and even though I know it's not her it's been a comfort while I've been trying to get over the shock of losing her.

Have a great week everyone!
