Hearts Ache and Flourish

WordPress was the first outlet which allowed me to write and connect with a range of people from different walks of life.  The journey has been beautiful and I have made great friends through my writing.

In the past few weeks I started shared my writing on Instagram and I am loving the vibe and various connections made with people from near and far.  It fills me with elation to write, share and meet people with the same passion.

I love connecting with my readers, so please follow me on Instagram and Facebook or drop me an e-mail curlymiriblog@gmail.com 

If you have any requests, suggestions or feedback please do not hesitate to contact me.

This piece relates to an experience I had of when I loved someone who was once mine but he fell in love with someone else.  I do not regret loving him or this experience.  There is always a valuable lesson to be learned.

This piece relates to my first love.  He was once mine but he fell in love with a stranger while we were at a party.  I guess my naive state of mind believed our love was real and would last forever. I do not regret loving him or this experience. There is always a valuable lesson in such experiences.  In this instance, do not fall in love with a Hanson lookalike.

I attended the funeral of a sweet 8 year old boy who fought a courageous battle with cancer. I can't make sense of why children are taken so soon. The parent's eulogies were uplifting and spoke of a son who never complained throughout his treatment, who in the end comforted them in their pain. This boy lived a full and meaningful life and has left a large footprint in the hearts of many. His strength of character is admirable and motivating to the human essence. Young man you have given me hope for my own path in my life, thank you. • I became overwhelmed with emotion at the cemetery when I glanced at his mother who displayed an immense sense of grief. I closed my eyes and in the distance I could hear her deep whimpering and it broke my heart. • Love your loved ones with all that you are. Say and do all that you want to do. Life is precious.

Love, Desire & Pain

Here are my latest pieces of writing.

You can also find me on Instagram and Facebook.  Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Purity

I wrote this after thinking of the the very first time I saw and touched snow, a beautiful memory.

Shatter

Sometimes you can’t help who you love, even if that love has the ability to destroy you, it is the only way you feel you can survive. That feeling inspired this piece.

Love & laughter,

Thursday Treats

A special entry of Thursday Treats inspired by my recent engagement to Mister.

I’ve always envisioned a wedding reception beneath a canopy of trees, sitting among our loved ones laughing, dancing and enjoying great food and music.

Samoa or Auckland are the two destinations in mind.  We have an upcoming trip to Samoa in August, so we’ll be on the look out for potential wedding venues.

If we choose Auckland, I would love a winter wedding with a vintage inspired theme.  This would be my dream dress:

Bridesmaids would mirror the vintage theme accordingly in my favorite color, pastel green.

No wedding reception is complete without a vintage dessert table filled with an array of decadence.

Mister would look handsome regardless of his attire.  We looked at a few Groom options and his pick was a classic black tux.

Baby’s breath brings back so many memories of my childhood, my favorite choice for wedding flowers on tables and as a bouquet.

If we choose Samoa, the tropical weather will mean a change of dress so we’ll keep that option open.  An exciting part of life, can’t wait to be your wife my Mister.

He said:

This is not your home.  It is mine.

You have a bad heart.

If you were a good person you would allow me to do whatever I wanted in my house.

Bring over drunk women at 2 am.

Allow them to break glasses and commit adultery in the bathroom.

Disrupt your studies.

Oh, that’s right you’re trying to better yourself for us.

But why?  You’re useless.

You can clean their mess in the morning.

Let me talk to my friends kindly and treat them with respect.

As I talk to you like you’re a piece of shit.

She said:

I once believed your heart was pure.

There was a moment in time when you adored me.

You would whisper words of love that would nurture my soul.

Gentle and kind.

Loving and true.

I looked up to you.

My heart is good.

I am enough.

I just wish I was enough for you.

Eleven

I was only eleven.  His welcoming arms and tender embrace felt so safe.  Going to the beach was our favourite pastime.  We would walk hand in hand along the shore in search of pretty shells and slimy seaweed.  I looked into his eyes in search of kindness and in return his beaming smile made me feel like I was loved.  I guess that’s why I felt special when he would visit me in my bedroom each night.

At first, we would talk for hours then as the evenings grew colder he would lay with me beneath my covers and touch me.   I was taken aback the first time he kissed me, his lips stale with the stench of cigarettes accompanied with the sweet words, “It’s okay, I love you.  I just want to make you feel good.”  I did not hesitate as he made me feel complete.   He wanted more so he started to caress my inner thigh and in between my legs he would lay and the pleasure I felt made me feel like I belonged to him.  He made me promise not to tell anyone, especially our family.  Telling me that if I let anyone know about us that our bond would be broken and no other could ever love me the way he did.  I believed every honeyed word that left his lips.

I yearned for his embrace each night.  No one told me that what he was doing was wrong.  I did not feel that being loved could ever be wrong, even if it was by my own uncle.  The years passed and our relationship continued.  He would bring girlfriends around to family brunch on Sunday.  In my jealousy I would threaten to inform my family, but he said it was to ensure they would never think anything was going on between us.  I believed every saccharine word from his mouth.

I left home to be with him when he moved to another town.  I was overjoyed when I became pregnant and thought he would share in my joy.  No.  This moment of happiness was removed in an instant.  He slapped me across my face and beat me until I could no longer bleed, leaving my baby without a heartbeat.   Didn’t he love me?  Didn’t he want me?  Did I not give myself to this man every night for six years?

Tonight, I shall return to the deep blue of where we once walked hand in hand.  No longer will I collect scattered shells or delight in his shameless paradigm of affection. I will remember the sweetness of being a child, innocent and untainted by a love that has torn the core of my being.

I will be free.
