Puppy Love

“Love me.” You beg,
With your big brown doggy eyes.
We are not so different,
You and I.

I speak,
My words,
Falling like pebbles,
Into a lake of silence.

No ripple,
No response,
They drown,

In your indifference

Just when I thought it was safe to come out of the water and nip back to Athens for the weekend AZZITIZZ, who I recently gave a shout out, bloody well tags me.
I am supposed to tell you the rules but, quite frankly it isn’t rocket science so if you can’t work them out by reading the post you probably ought to run for president.

1. Every time I say that I am not going to do another meme it turns out to be a big fat lie.
2. I can hop for quite an impressive distance across very hot sand (I found this out last week when I stepped on a wasp at the beach).
3, I have overcome my fear of cockroaches (killing dozens of the things on a daily basis at our holiday let is excellent therapy).
4. Every time I see a bride being transported to church I get an almost irresistible urge to run after her screaming “DON’T DO IT! DON’T DO IT!”
5. I hate listening to squeaky/ high pitched voices so Mickey Mouse annoys the hell out of me.
6. I REALLY hate clowns, I may have mentioned this before but it bears repeating.
7. Hell will freeze over before I do a HNT,
8. YOUR TURN .What do you THINK you know about me?

Now it is my turn to tag:-

Tina, A post, a post…If only to cock my leg on.
Pauline. Keep it in the family.
Puerileuwaite. Well overdue!
Myutopia, nice name.
Sugar Smacks. Should be interesting
Blancodeviosa. She loves memes as much as I do.
Squirl, I don’t visit her nearly as much as I should.
Top Cat, for being a cool cat, and an “awesome dude”

Let me in I beg,
Open the door.
Too long I have stood
Outside in the cold.

Slowly I am freezing,
And my heart has lost all feeling’
For the man whose children I have borne,
For the man with whom I share a home.

But your blank look is all I see.
Your mind is closed and locked to me.
Trapped within your lonely walls.
Unable it seems to answer my calls.

So we wait,
We two,
Together but apart,
As love turns to hate.
And petrifies my heart.

My blogging friend Queenie has very kindly seen fit to give me a rockin' girl blogger award. It was bright pink but another of my friends, Dan, helped me out by changing the colour to blue so that it would match my blog's colour scheme. I would have nominatedDan but as heisn't a girl I restrained myself. Someone who is a bit quicker than me though nominated his cat Lulu so I am now in very exalted company indeed. Now it is my turn to nominate five lucky ladies for this distinction:-
My first choice is Lime and not because I have a green button. On the contrary the green button was made because there is lime.
Second in my illustrious line-up comes my sister Pauline. Not because she is my sister but because her blog really rocks.
My third choice is the incomparable Logo who is as witty a biking blogger as you could wish to meet.
Fourth in my line- up is Blancodeviosa becauseI love her pics and poetry as well as her "don't give me any shit"attitude.
Last but by no means least, my fifth choice for a rockin' girlblogger award is Tina.
Now she will have to post.

If I could I would nominate at least another five
but I guess it would be bending the rules too far
so I will have to make do with naming them:
miss understood, sugar smacks, groovy lady,
Ann, Val and Ali.
I will get you next time or develop the know how
to create an award of my own in the autumn.
