TruthBunny

a little insight can be dangerous

(False) bunny love

His affection always eludes me
But not for lack of trying
His endless chatter slips into repeated attempts
to open my soul and mind.

I confused his kindness with thoughtful interest
carefully crafted responses seemed to imitate compassion

But the conversations were constructed to placate, not to soothe
Words were never offered to comfort, merely to pacify and deflect
False consideration masked the true intent to manipulate

My foolish heart didn’t recognize what’s now achingly clear
His words, so full and meaningful when forming promises of indefinite companionship –
And yet, the same mouth spilling such kindness and promise
never hesitated when saying goodbye

The audacity to offer condolences and feign tortured grief
as if causing heartache could be easily forgiven
as long as it was bestowed with well rehearsed phrases
and offered with a promise of future false friendship.

Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award (Photo credit: It’s Great To Be Home)

A couple of months ago, I found myself diving head first and eyes closed into the world of  blogging. My ‘public’ literary contributions up to that point were limited to stale requisite business proposals at work or cryptic social media updates – ah yes, masterpieces that only a mother could love .. well, assuming your mom was also your boss or she actually knew how to use her Facebook account…

Nope, I was a total newbie to this groovy scene. Without any expectations (or even a plan), I decided to share my thoughts, inspirations and my heart.
Two months and a little over 20 posts later … I’m still finding my way and my voice. The best part that I never saw coming were the incredibly talented bloggers I’ve met in this short period of time!

One in particular. An amazing woman and a clever fellow blogger, shareenayoub, just nominated me for…

The Versatile Blogger Award!!

I’m not sure where to begin with my appreciation, but I suspect the best way is a sincere “Thank You” and a promise to keep earning this awesome nomination. Shareenayoub, I am honored and grateful for your support

If you haven’t seen her blog, then you must check out her brilliance:

This nomination is truly flattering … and a little scary because I’m also supposed to share 7 things about me that no one knows (and I had planned to keep it that way) …

Oh well, here goes:

1.  I’m a documentary freak.. My entire Netflix queue is filled with every documentary available at any given time. Pick a subject, any subject. If someone has made a documentary about it.. I’m sure I’ve seen it. (trust me, they make ‘em about everything from sushi to porn)

2.  I love to floss my teeth .. aside from sounding like I’m trying to impress my dentist, at least this factoid is a healthy one.

3.  I went to a fortune-teller/psychic many years ago and still try to recall if any of his predictions for my life have proven to be accurate thus far.

4.  I say a little prayer every time I see an ambulance roar by with its sirens blaring.. someone’s mother, father, sibling or child is in there and … maybe it could help?

5.  I miss school. Yes, a career is nice and pays the bills, but I’m a sucker for education.

6.  I’m a hopeless romantic that hates ‘chick flicks’. Okay, hate may be a bit strong… but let’s just say that I believe a good action flick is totally ruined when they insert a silly love story to attract the female moviegoers. Ummmm, no.  Let me enjoy the hot shirtless leading man fighting off evil (and yes, he should remain shirtless throughout) without the distraction of some random helpless chick arbitrarily inserted into the story for no particular reason than to distract him from saving the world… without his shirt.

7. I know almost every word to almost every cheesy eighties pop song in existence and will happily sing along whenever and wherever I hear one…until someone asks me to do karaoke. That’s where I draw the line.

Thanks for letting me (over)share.

Please check out these amazing, entertaining and equally versatile blogs – they all rock and deserve this honor:

1.  You’re Just a Dumbass

2.  Word Musing

3.  The Return of the Modern Philosopher

4.  I am Marcello

5.  Miles to go before I sleep

6.  Professions of a Paranoid Perfectionist

7.  Sex and the Shameless

8.  hastywords

9.  Prego and the Loon

10. HarsH ReaLiTy

11. Maggie Mae I just Say This

12. The Grimm Report

13.  A Place of Inspiration

14.  Reasonably Ludicrous

15.  thejournalfiles

Cheers!
