Sleeping Beauty: The Aftermath

And when you awaken from that magic spell, 
Your heart unshackled, 
Your lips hurting like hell, 
Think of me. 
 I only wanted to share your dreams,
But that will never be,
And I don't regret...

Knowing you once,
A past life, fast times,
Your charming smile, 
Your bright grey eyes,
 Laughter of my life.
And I never thought
There was a price for happiness
 I was wrong,
 Pain and love are entangled,
Unravelled, two ribbons, 

But I won't regret
Loving you,

Goodbye Old Friend
I'll think of you fondly
My Own Way

A/N:  Hello Everyone, we have sunshine, its Friday - two good reasons to smile.  I hope you are having a fabulous week in your neck of the woods. My parallel universe is a little crazy right now, I have several events to work on.  Next week I am taking a break from blogging to rejuvenate and focus on my manuscripts.  I'll be back on the 24 October.  Have a lovely weekend!

24/10/11: Hello, I am here but unfortunately with my current schedule, I'm unable to blog today.  I will post Wednesday and Friday this week.  Hope you are all well!  Talei x


  1. This poem is gorgeous. And the picture, uh, beautiful.

    I'm so glad I stopped by.

  2. You go girl. Sometimes a mini-break is needed. Not a Bridget Jones mini-break (although that would be nice if Colin Firth was there)...but I meant time for writing. Have fun:)

  3. Lovely poem, dearest!! Have a wonderful weekend and week- full of sunshine, great writing and plenty of fun to get the juices flowing! (And plenty of drinks too!) *clink, clink*

    Will miss you though!

  4. A moving poem. Enjoy your mini-blogcation..I'm myself taking one in November and December...There will only be guest posts! Let me know if you'd like to guest post in either of those months :)

  5. Beautiful. It speaks to me in so many different ways. Have a productive week.

  6. Angela, much obliged - thank you so much!

    Jessie, cheers, lovely! I hope to get through a few chapters and I'm working on a new idea. Oh, and I wouldn't say no to a cup of tea from Colin Firth during my writing sojourn. ;-)

    Danette, thank you, darling. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It came from the heart...of sorts. Have a lovely weekend!

    Damyanti, a blogcation sounds fab, I know this is a short one - shall work on a longer one soon though. I would love to do a guest post, will email. ;-)

    Rosalind, thank you so much! Have a fab week too!

  7. The poem is so lovely and it seems like the poem is just going through her mind by the look on the photo! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Riya, thank you for your kind comments. I love the photos too - they're quite evocative on their own.

    Ps: I couldn't find a link back to your blogger profile. Thanks for stopping by! ;)

  9. Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem. Enjoy your blog break.

  10. That was a beautiful poem! I LOVED it!
