Song lyrics to melt a girl’s heart

girl-asleep-flowers-cake

I’m giving a lot of thought to the issue of social justice and how it relates to gender equality. Girls are a long way behind boys in some countries. In fact many girls never go to school or earn a descent living. Can a gorgeous word ~ Vef ~ put them in front or not?

Perhaps I’m overly infatuated with the letter f .. Haha! I write and post articles on this blog to educate myself about how language can help solve the problem. I’m always reading books and finding unusual words.

So it’s wee small hours of the night and I’ve been hard at work trying to get everything organized before going to sleep. Listening to music is one of my greatest pleasures and I often dig out old classics. Wow! These song lyrics by The Cranberries are sure to melt a girl’s heart and they go like this.

Linger

If you, if you could return, don’t let it burn, don’t let it fade.

I’m sure I’m not being rude, but it’s just your attitude,
It’s tearing me apart, It’s ruining everything.

I swore, I swore I would be true, and honey, so did you.
So why were you holding her hand? Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you.
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong.
If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie,
Things wouldn’t be so confused and I wouldn’t feel so used,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Song is from the Album – Everybody else is doing it so why can’t we (1992).

My dream blog

Creatrix-dream-painting

In recent weeks I’ve got some distasteful comments about Vef (Venus flower) which I don’t approve. I have to tell you that I don’t allow negative vibes to bother her or me.
Oops! Did I just say her and me?
Yes I certainly did.

Okay I do talk about Vef as if she is a real person? Well that’s because she is and I am her mother. So if anyone would like to disagree they will bear witness to my extraordinary wrath and scorn.

I’ve existed for millions of years in hash environments where criticism is always dismissed as irrelevant. I am Vef’s primary caregiver and will go to any lengths to protect her from ridicule or harm.

I commenced this blog for a particular reason ~ a dream. Fantasy fiction is my thing ~ it’s as simple as that really. So enjoy these song lyrics and we’ll catch up again.

A dream is a wish your heart makes

When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep.

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true.

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re feeling small, yeah
Alone in the night you whisper
Thinking no one can hear you at all
You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don’t let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true, oooh, yeah.

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep.

You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don’t let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true
No matter your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true
Ooh, yeah, come true.

Sensual flowers are linked with romance

shelley-pressed-flower-art

Flowers are sensual. In a botanical sense that’s quite literally true – flowers are plants reproductive organs, after all. And we humans have always picked up on their sex appeal. Throughout history, flowers have been linked with romance and love. With their intricate shapes, colours, patterns, and scents, blossoms are in many ways the definition of beauty. Flowers are one of nature’s most beautiful ideas.

Flower of Life
This here, her flower,
open and moist
awaiting her lover
to fill her, bursting
warm wet flesh on satin petals unfurling
she is a tight bud of love and pain and lust
throbbing, pulsing
through warm veins of hope and trust
pouring into womb and sealing heartache there
with brush strokes she lays her heartbreak bare
for all the world to see
for all the world to be
a flower
where life begins
despite twisted and broken limbs
she longs for life
within her, inside her
she is life obsessed with death
until her dying breath
the flower.
 
 
Creative writing, Vef (Gender equality in language.)
