i know preY


 

My memories grow stale

Yet with nothing to compare

Brilliantly Boring, you see as a tale

I am alone, my species, so rare

 

I cannot date where I begin

Centuries fly passing

The world dictated where I have been

And my prey, never lasting

 

But I too, once devoured by bite

My predator minding his prey

Trance my being, and took us to flight

Days he spent using me to play

 

All I see now are shadows of dying

Each bite stronger, he perfected his kill

No patience for whine, dare to be crying

He demanded his routine, obedient, lay still

 

How everyday now, I too must bite

Keep surviving the way in how I must

Revolting now, to me a victim, beg or fight

Inside their characters, is liquid I trust

 

I have no sympathy, for your pleading, pathetic way

Be very clear. you are nothing more. than today’s prey

 

 

As I am sitting here

Alone with name

I crave for fear

At least a harder game

 

An Angel and fallen dark

Bitten and turned vamp forever

My neck tattooed a predators mark

Strong magic growing more clever

 

I misunderstand who I am

Searching my memory

For signs in tomorrows hand

Each of you my enemy

 

I have no sympathy, for your pleading, pathetic way

Be very clear. you are nothing more. than today’s prey


she was still as dead


 

she was still as dead

as she squatted amongst the mist

deep into the forest

wet from condensation

no sweat glands for the tropical heat

rain was just ending

animals were reappearing

she was ready, hours she had been there

slayers were her favorite sarcasm

so stupid using read tactics and attacks

she smelt two now that the air had less moisture

they were near

close enough to almost show off

this was always her favorite moment in her defense

just before the war

knowing already the outcome

she still capable of freezing every muscle

undetected and skillfully protected

she did smirk at the game she loved

being so wanted and needed

wanted to be killed was a compliment

how powerful and feared she must be

she knew she was and loved revisiting the notion

stupid slayers she could hear twigs break

under their attempted tip toe moves

waiting, yes, waiting

they were so close

she was so excited

no hunt tonight

they had once again come to her

just moments away now

 

 


My Weapon, Your Lesson


 

I am Changing, Why? Time is……

 

Another Vampire Feast

Yet you enter me at least

 

I will never let go

Your desire I now know

 

To show you I am wide

My secret hides on my other side

 

Only alone do I feel this pleasure

Hidden are my gifts of pressure

 

Fears undeserving far to long an

Love, immortal, is our song

 

Time I pray will rid of his kills

Turning slowly I can’t sit still

 

Now I was able to let you see

My weapons are none more than me

 

The source that is killing

the very one I find thrilling

 

Tis far greater to mock my mistakes

In my life, immortal, no saviours gate

 

Time I suppose will help me with skills

More techniques to learn, rules and kills

 

Come I will never let go

Your desire I now know

 

To show you I am wide

My secret hides on my other side

 

Only alone do I feel this pleasure

Hidden are my gifts of treasure

 

Fears undeserving far too long

Love, not immortal, is our song

 

Time I pray will rid of his kills

Turning slowly I can’t sit still

 

Now I was able to let you see

My weapons are none more than me

 

The factor that is killing me

Is the very one I cannot feel just see

 

It is far greater to beg for my mistakes

And in my life, now immortal not fake

 

Time I suppose will help perfect my skills

Techniques teach obedience whilst one kills

 

Rather choose to obey and respect

Distribute fear to begin I will Infect

 

Chase as effect to hunt thy prey

Just to judge their fear this way

 

You do not know what I can do

The silence you hear, is calm for you

 

Mistake me again for being kind

Reveals stupidity in your witty mind

 

Make no mistake I live in peace

I can watch myself even as beast

 

Time I pray will rid of his kills

Turning slowly I can’t sit still

 

Should you hurt just one I love

Or mock my being just look above

 

Search for protection as you look up there

Do know the prey you hurt with no care

 

See and hear the clarity I speak

As you only do know we will meet

 

What? Is it possible to respect your smut?

Do hope your joking, your finished and cut

 

You the type who laugh even now

encourage in sequel, will show how

 

Time I suppose will help perfect my skills

Techniques teach obedience whilst thy kills

 

You so perfect in all of each day

Run, start now, my love, my next preY

 

Until eve of Tomorrows Day

I must know why I change, what’s biting my way

 

Regardless mY weapon, will be your lesson.

Trust you may, come lets preY


I’m allowed


Just felt like posting.  Happy New Year to everyone – yes I am aware I have no readers but someone might stumbleupon me, rats, different site, you know what I mean!


For my hubbers


[kimberlyslyrics] sign out

By kimberlyslyrics

Officially I am just shy of 2 years here at HubPages. Even more curious.

See all 5 photos

I have possibly learned a few things, and it’s just in my DNA that I learn everything the harder way.  Learn just the same.

Irrelevant information as usual LOL.

My hub here is similar to the one I did a year ago. Helping those that are new by everyone voting their opinion. An opinion about HubPages and ourcommunity as a whole. I will keep the resuts up and the Hub current so we are getting the most current data possible.

I cannot compare this one to last years as the questions have changed a great deal.

My fault, I am growing, so is mycuriosity.

Clearly, the more people that vote, the larger the scale we can pull opinions from. Remembering that all results will be on a small scale.

Let’s get our scrubs on and start getting surgical with these 20 questions.

I’ll keep them as simple as I can so it’s not too time consuming

Thank you for participating. All I ask is to please be honest. This will not be for nothing, trust me.

Lastly, grab even one other Hubber please and ask them if they wouldn’t mind taking the poles. Thank You, Thank you.

OKAY let’s go.

Below s a comment box to answer the following question with preferably one word. What is the one element that keeps you coming back?

IE; forums, friendships, publishing, reading other hubs, commenting, viewing your own feedback, data numbers etc.

For me I would have to say reading and trying to remember comments is key, we do not live in these screens but when i read i feel more often than not, a connection, mutual goal, a new friendship often.

Only one answer per person, additional ones will be deletedUnfollow (21)

Exposure. Connecting with certain favorite writers (and people) I’ve met on other “user-generated-content” sites (usually the paying ones). OCD’ing over my “hubscore”/”hubkarma” ;). To vent. To rant. To inform and opine about NVLD and other “invisible” disabilities.

To vent.

To rant.

Oh yeah – said those. Worth saying twice. 😉

Because CERTAIN other sites are messing with “allowing” comments or not, based on the whole Googalrithmic bs and the changes it has effected.

Just to keep up with and add to the…er….”hub”bub! 😉

mind and spiritual awareness expanding. Many write on topics close to their hearts, it’s a privilege to read someone else’s ‘story’, and it enables me to see through some of the non-essentials of my own life. I know you said one word, but that’s simply not me kimberlyslyrics…. so, the fulfillment comes from the bravery and courage of every writer I read. Blessed be.

I know you very well? Why would you say this?

I had no idea you had been stalked. I apologize for the inconsideration. I swear I only used the “stalking” in the context contained in barbergirl28’s hub. As innocent reference to “FOLLOWING” another hubber.

The only hub of yours I have even read is the poll one right here. I apologize if it seems otherwise. I promise I had no idea you were really stalked. That is a serious thing for sure.

Lapse, I thought you had gotten my message on that hub link and am sorry you did not. I owe you a big apology as I panicked and assumed in error something other than what I see was a sense of humour, I usually have one. Not with this. Please forgive my judgement as I was way off and really feel stupid!

I’m glad I am posting this here so no one assumes anything based on my big mouth. This was terrible. I apologize and was wrong.

Lyrics Lessons Learned

  • First and foremost don’t produce never ending hubs that go on forever, the reader won’t last, and if someone can teach me how to do that, mega cash, mega mega cash I would want to give.
  • Stay true to yours and only your heart. Outside influences can always benefit but it’s your name, just stay true.
  • Do not hesitate on content matter from fear of what people will think. We are writers, and sadly opinions come with what we write. We are also creative and sensitive because most of us put our heart and sole in our work. Give yourself permission to take things personally, then move on.
  • If your getting heated up in the forums, right or wrong, walk. I’ve been banned I think 5 times, all justified, but it never made me feel better about the dispute. If anything I just felt like I was sent to the corner of the room told to face the wall for a week. ha. True though.
  • In every community, there is cliques – creating gossip, but they feel is true, having never asked you. It hurts. You instinctively want to defend your character. Don’t try. Its wasted energy and a battle not worth the potential consequences. Do something else, don’t even read, and surprisingly when there is no response the gossip dies quick. Let it go. Two wrongs don’t make a right, right?
  • Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn Read and learn
  • use the Team.  They are there for a reason but cannot help you if they are not hearing from you.  May be tough to believe but they really can be very helpful.
  • If someone is telling you really negative aspects about the site or team, they’re blowing off steam, let it blow off you.  DO NOT let it effect your work or day for that matter or creepier lead to a growing fungus of gossip.
  • HUBPAGES IS VERY FIRM WHEN ANYTHING COMES TO LEGITIMATE CYBER-BULLYING OR CYBER-STALKING.  IT’S THROUGHOUT THE NET BUT HUBPAGES DOES GO THE EXTRA MILE TO ENSURE IT DOES NOT DEVELOP HERE. BUT AGAIN REGARDLESS HOW TRIVIAL YOU THINK THE TEAM WILL PERCEIVE SOMETHING, IF IT’S EFFECTING YOU-LET THEM KNOW, BUT AGAIN YOU HAVE TO COMMUNICATE. KEEP IN MIND YOU ALSO MAY NOT BE ALONE AND COULD BE PROTECTING OR HELPING SOMEONE ELSE TOO.  THESE ARE CRIMINAL OFFENSES AND I AM NOT JOKING. Having said that, best I know we are clear from any such behaviors, thankfully.
  • The Team promotes flirting and skype-sex ha, had to do it.  I actually have a point and learned how important it was not to make assumptions when meeting someone.  At the end of any day its a virtual world, but we are real people and writers.  Words can really hurt.  I don’t purposely ever go out of my way to piss someone off [2 exceptions my fault] i am a good target-as early as 3 days ago i was again told “people don’t get you”  The best reason I can think of is I take very little seriously, am seldom serious yet write extremely serious issues.  That however is me, always will be, and if you look behind my elementary level writing you will clearly see a scholars heart. OK enough ugh
  • We create this community.  We do.  Let’s create.
  • Kimberly shuts up to stuff another 2 donuts in her mouth.

Clearly over 2 years I have many many Hubbers that inspire me, many to which are on my profile page.  But I would just like to shout out a few inspiring and courageous Hubbers for the newcomer.

These Hubbers depict what creates this community and are constantly raising the bar for creative content and conceptual ideas.  Check them out, it will be obvious what I am referring to.

Oh yes, and they also all are women, I figured I had to do something to help menarrow the pact and I will do the men in a hub soon.  Man or Woman we have agreat community here, lets keep helping each other and always be teachable.

Our Girls on the Block

criteria; helped or inspired or taught me. listened to me, supportive follower. Got my back when i needed it. often seen helping new Hubbers. Active in the Community and our events. not of major or great importance; elite status, time here, number of followers, author score, or accolades [unless anybody is passing some this way] nor if you are following me

OMG this hard to do without the boys, you have my word, because you should also know the positive effective you have had with me also. Thank you for your patience.

OK I’m still KimmyKimmy from the block – I use to have a little now I have not ha – No matter how I get, I still remember where I came from.

O that video must be put next;

Girls really just trying to say a huge Thank You and what I am saying thank you for are 2 really important things to me; Thank You for getting me through when I didn’t think I could and thank You for sharing so much Inspiration with me.  I keep growing thanks to you.

I’m still Kimmy, Kimmy from the block……..

Strangely, I haven’t read any of your hubs before. I found this one on the FEED. Cool ideas to have a Poll Survey. Your videos were well interspersed to listen while filling out the questions. For some reason, I did not understand: Did someone just say Team? in a snarky way? IPs can be traced on these polls by the team. And, curiously, it would be nice to be able to select more than one answer. Blessings, Debby

Interesting song. Being from the hills of MO I’ve haven’t heard of this one. The lyrics are different for sure. It makes a good poem though. So it is called “Not very long?”

Like I was saying on a different hub, if it makes a good poem it will make a good song too. Enjoy.

Kimberly I dropped by for two reasons! #1 to thank you for following my hubs and to find out more through reading your hubs. The Poll was Different so I decided to participate.

You have an interesting series of questions which I attempted to answer as honestly as possible! I will be reading more in future and commenting when I can! Keep up the Good Work!

Regards Mike (Aka Professor M!) ;D

I couldn’t agree more. Hubpages with no rules of content stuck in a box is the best part of this site, in my opinion.Thank you very much for participating, it really helps

My biggest fear is that people with talent will keep thinking they are going to become famous by writing all day long on hubpages. Because many of them will die sudden and ridiculous deaths at the hands of autoerotic pimp doggies while basking in the glow of their poetry so prestine.

But I am a follower of the true faith that rules the savage forces of art. And in that jungle there is only one law.

Talent is a vampire

Talent is a whore

Talent leaves you empty

Always wanting more

Talent made me love you

Talent made you leave

Talent is cheaper by the dozen

Talent makes you bleed

Talent is for talentless

Talent is for scores

Talent is not talent

Talent is nothing

If you have it, you know the score

Talent is a vampire

Talent is a whore

Talent is as meaningless

As words are to swords…

Well, as usual Kimberly, I got more than I bargained for when I opened the poll at the top of your profile page. Very interesting and it of course picqued my curiousity. Now what in the world do you plan on doing with your stats? LOL Thanks for having the heart of a scholar. Seriously. 🙂

I was touched by your thank you…

Holy cow – I have officially lost all conception on what a “hub” is! I narrowly assumed it was just an article – or maybe a poem. SLOWLY realized there’s pictures and video as well.

Not sure how (or why) to integrate all these media and fora – but wow, Kimberly – this is one mammoth, interesting and impressive hub! 🙂

I only found this as I did a search to see where I was on Google. Never expected to find me mentioned on someone else’s hub. Thank you for putting me in your list. I’m not sure how I helped or inspired or how I came to be on this list, but I certainly have your name on my list of inspirations.

I found this helpful, as I don’t have the time to, nor did I have knowledge of all HP has to offer (I work full time outside the creative arena). I’ve been a hubber for a little over 2 months, having published 18 so far. Would you do me the honor of reading my hubs and making comments/criticism and letting me know where you think my strengths lie?

I’m currently “interviewing” several publishing companies. I have over 100 poems I’d like to publish and have 2 novels in the works once that is accomplished.

As a newbie, or actually, a women once again returning to the creative world (in a whole new, albeit foreign, media!), I really need some guidance from someone other than a salesman who has his own monetary gains driving his faith in my works.

I’m reaching out here…. I’m definitely moving forward with my dream; I just don’t want to be misled or bled of money that needs to be well-spent!

(the sad story of) Our First Christmas Tree by Mickey Sr


                                     

 

Our first Christmas was the Christmas of a newly married couple of hippies who had been sweethearts for the previous three years in high school. I was not (am not) at all a very conventional sort, while my lovely wife has always been a very traditional homebody mom and wife. Now, I assumed, that first Christmas, that we would not be having a tree. I was not at all opposed to celebrating Christmas and I wasn’t interested to save money, etc – for me it was a matter of sorting through in my own head the ludicrous scheme before me. Chop down a tree and bring it into your house to celebrate the birth of Jesus . . ? . . it just struck me as such an absurd procedure that I couldn’t quite bring myself to participate (I kind of need a logical and practical reason for things – ‘everybody does’ or ‘that’s just the way it is’ just bounces right off of me).

 

Now, we didn’t have much; little money, no car, no decorations, minimal gifts for each other – but we did have three doggies . . . Dave, Ruth, and Larry. So, Christmas Eve I begin to sense my dear wife does not seem happy . . . this became observably clear when she began to weep. She wanted a Christmas tree. Apparently she had just been going along with my silliness, not wanting to be difficult, but now, at about 10 pm Christmas Eve, my darling was crying for a Christmas tree. So out I ventured into the cold dark night to give my baby our first Christmas tree.

 

Our last dog, and the best dog ever, Leonard.

 

Grandma sweetheart with just a few of her grandsons.

 

Just a block and a half away from our tiny apartment was a gas station selling trees, so I headed that way. Of course, everyone already had their tree and all the trees sales folks were nestled all warm in their beds – the place was dark and deserted. There were only three or four trees left, lying on the ground in a puddle, so I grabbed one by the trunk of one and, and, and was stopped dead in my tracks – the puddle was frozen solid and was not giving-up this tree. I had to walk back home and get a table knife (the closest thing I had to any manner of tool) and return to hack my wife’s tree loose.

 

. . . and hack and hack and hack. I was on my knees, with a table knife, no gloves, digging away in the dark trying to free a ragged old Christmas tree from an ice puddle in the lot of an abandoned gas station, for at least an hour. By the time I dragged that tree down the road and in the house I was spent – I got a cinder block from the side of the house, put in a corner and stuck the tree in it leaning against the wall. We stuck our couple gifts to each other, and to our puppies, under the tree and went to bed.

 

What giant a treat when we woke-up in the morning. The great chunks of ice frozen to the back of the tree had melted overnight all over our gifts and the floor and Dave, Ruth, and Larry had tracked it all through the rest of the house – except, it wasn’t chunks of ice, it was chunks of frozen mud that was now a great pool of liquid mud under our first Christmas tree and all over our presents and all through our house and all over our dogs. Of course now, we love our first Christmas tree and our first and only Christmas mud puddle – it’s one of our great ‘those were the days’ stories that remind us of who we are, where we’ve been, and how we’ve through all together. Merry Christmas!
