Far away bond


My fingers reach out into empty space
Eyes fixed on another place searching for the clue
To coordinate to be in a place
Where we can share our excitement too
A space where you might be
To expand the me to become two in that moment
So I can share your joy and see it reflected back in me
Of this far away interaction I am a proponent
Fate and faith come into play
As I join you on the screen and as a voyeur watch
Held by excitement bound to stay
Listening, building, feeling insecurities swatch

Character traits part of a discussion.

Last night I think our conversation became slightly skewed…because I was trying to work through the major character traits of our Eve and Rick….and was trying to work through the negative traits that impact on Eve and Rick and thus their actions and how that might impact on the story ….
We only really talked about negative…
Personalities are complex and what makes a person tick is complicated…but the balance of traits does change how people behave in situations…need to be a shrink to completely analyse…
Understanding needs, motivations and how positive and negative traits develop is an integral part of understanding a person.
So yesterday was talking about negative traits in isolation…..and anger, jealousy, greed, lust ,  feeling one cant do anything right, feeling unloved, feeling unsafe, feeling inferior, arrogance for example are negative traits that impact behaviour but are maybe  balanced by positive traits in our overall personality…
That’s how every persons personality is made…in everyday life we don’t analyse it …we accept how people behave….we are drawn to people whose basic personality resonates with our beliefs and views of the world, we admire peoples strengths and in those people we tolerate those things in them that might not resonate with us…even the annoying ways they may behave sometimes…. Think of some of the things that occasionally irritate you about your friends….
We love our friends flaws and all….because their strengths are the essence of them
Its human to hone in on flaws ..BUT its a persons strengths that we most admire
Negative traits can be overcome…..replaced by positive behaviours….hard to do…but if we understand …what our motivations are can happen…positive growth
But in times of stress and crisis it may be the negative traits that steer our behaviour… equally might be the positive ….honour,compassion,kindness,desire to protect others,
Its what causes one person to develop traits like curiosity, decisiveness,and adaptability, while another becomes thoughtful,observant and empathetic….that’s interesting….
First thing is morality….the way right and wrong is seen…
Then the meeting of needs…
For example if a person is safe secure and loved but craves the recognition and esteem of others then the traits of determination, efficiency and perseverance may develop.
When needs are not met anxiety and dissatisfaction develop and behaviour might change…
Core needs are important in life and if a need goes unmet for a long time ,anxiety can change a persons moral compass…
What a person will or will not do in any given situation depends on the the depth of the need and the persons ability to satisfy the need.

Positive traits include creativity, discipline,  resourcefulness, caution,generosity,patience, courtesy…
So the negative….or flaw is only a part….but they are the things that drive destructive behaviour….and can in theory be modified and changed.
Sorry this is an essay…just really concerned that the discussion last night was only part of the whole personality picture.
People and what makes us tick really interests me……and I do sometimes pick up on the negatives that I see…when people are demonstrating self limiting behaviour….

Ebb and flow of far away relationships


The tides of feeling ebb and flow

Fantasy, reality side by side grow

I shut my eyes and all I see
Is your smiling face looking down on me
It makes me want to run and find
Love and succour of another kind
But you are oh, so far away
A fantasy at the end of the day

I want to reach and touch your hand

In my mind I almost can, in this world, fantasy land
You fill my soul with song and light

Add a dimension that meshes just right

We share some parts of our lives

Though a full account will never arrive

I read your words and scour the lines
For meanings that are left behind

But you are oh so far away
Just a dream at the end of the day
This sharing brings some emotional pain
But equally an amount of gain

I accept the limitations of this world

It adds dimension sails unfurled

I close my eyes and all I see
Is a fantasy fading away from me


Feel the rhythm feel the beat
Sense the music adding heat
Threads of sound around, around
Those Vibrations shake the ground

Musicians play with all their might
Sending melodies into the night
Threads of sound around, around
Stir the soul, nerve endings pound

Bodies jostle ,writhe and shake
Dancing to the musics take
Threads of sound around and around
Mesmerised by the magicians sound.


A permanent smile on my face
When we meet touch base
Our interactions somewhere in space
My mind’s touch to trace
Your image ingrained
Deep in the terrain
Of the recesses of my brain
Your conversation and charm never constrained
When I think of you
I try and decide
Which way will our friendship go
Much better this I know
Just to let it flow
Keeping the goal in sight
Let what is meant to be
Naturally unfold for us to see

what is a girl to do?

Be it theatre ,concert or in a tent
When you need the loo
There is always a queue
You stand in line
Contemplate crime
Why does it take so long
When there is a throng
For women to pee
Its way beyond me
What else to do
When you want the loo
Behind a tree
People will see
Need to squat
Better not
Its so unfair
There is a gents over there
no queue
Whats a girl to do??

Ruminations on beliefs

I discovered a secret so true today
It made be stop and rethink my philosophy
We all need affection a connection
To be appreciated and to stop misdirection
Misdirection that maybe stunts our growth
That we use in our world to hold back our feelings
Or maybe to stop the status quo from unreeling
Our beliefs we can change with a fight and struggleIMG_20150619_200636
If we recognise they are outmoded are causing us trouble
We make excuses for not taking action
Because maybe morally it causes dissension

A view of Cyberspace Relationships


We met on a word game in cyberspace
We got on well we bonded and chased
We talked and shared our lives our schemes
Hard to remember it is a fantasy, a dream
For we only know the other, from the information they have shared
They will have kept secrets though their soul seems to be bared
We see their lives from their point of view
Not a rounded version from others too
We found an oasis from lifes woes and cares
We are indulging in a cyber affair
We share great intimacy its exotic erotic
But its words and pictures its only symbolic
It revs up our hormones and gives us a thrill
Feels so real ,our needs to fulfill
It floats us away on an idealistic dream
When we mutually cum its so good we scream
We find so much in common it gives us a high
We see the nice bits not the grumps or the cry
We have to balance this wonderful time
To avoid these friendships would be a crime
But the real world comes first has to be the case
Fantasy is just that, it has a place
Enjoy the moments the tingle and the fun
If your emotions are entangled,it’s time to run
Understand the rules keep them in mind
Otherwise heart break will find you in time
