Nope, Can't Do!




A year ago, 
my life took a turn in a new direction   

I was no longer allowed to stuff the emotional hollowness 
with glitter and unicorns 

Glitter and unicorns are pretty and made me feel good, 
but they could not be a part of my life

A new way to fill up the emptiness 
was presented to me on a silver platter

All I had to do was to follow the directions, 
which I have with great tenacity

I still admire pretty things, 
but I don’t need them to be happy, 
especially the unicorns

I am full

I am loved


Our challenge this week was to write exactly 100 words about the word "forbidden" without using the word, itself!  Boy, that wonderful Jenny is full of fun and games, isn't she?  Please ride your horsey over to Jenny's place and see how my friends have shared their creative genius!  Just click on the logo below!  Thanks for stopping by!

Very nice. I especially like the idea of stuffing "emotional hollow" areas with glitter and unicorns. And yes, love is so much better!

Ah yes, what a delightful world life and love can be!

I don't like romantic love--I'd rather have glitter and unicorns. Other kinds of love are pretty good, though.

Gosh.

Gosh.

I re-read the 'emotional hollow' part of this great writing several times.

And I am still envisioning it.

Glitter and unicorns.

Darn.

Sometimes it's difficult when you try to live life without the, though.
