    Submitting for today's #lunaticc challenge, via #writersbay ...

    Over the past few days, I've been dealing with nausea and vertigo. The vertigo causes a swaying feeling within me, as if I'm on a boat, despite the fact that I haven't set foot on a boat in years.
    The cause is a combination of medication issues and the recent turbulence here on the forum. I sometimes (unintentionally) take on the emotions surrounding a situation, which then manifest themselves as physical symptoms. As things have settled down here, the symptoms have slowly started dissipating too.
    Since there was very little I could do about it, I did what any writer would do, when they can't do much else. In other words, I wrote about it. Thank you for reading. ♥️

    *I look forward to getting back to reading/reposting soon. Hopefully within the next few days.

    Boy, you got me reeling
    Like I'm spinning in space
    Swaying back and forth
    E'er since I first saw your face
    Caught up in this motion
    I don't know what to do
    Going nowhere, yet I'm moving
    Ever closer to you
    Don't know how it happened
    Guess you caught me off guard
    Feelin' like a lunatic
    Life is hittin' me hard
    Babe you got me rockin'
    Like the waves in the ocean
    But it's time to cool it down
    I need to quell this commotion
    You shook the ground before me
    When you stepped on this Earth
    You showed me your true power
    So I'd know what you're worth
    No need to get it twisted
    Don't pull the rug from beneath me
    You gotta know by now
    I prize the love you bequeath me
    Never mind the past
    Let's move together in time
    Come find me in the beat
    Of every word that I rhyme
    You can be my rock
    'Cause you're so steady and strong
    And I can keep us grounded
    We won't waver for long
    You got me straight up syncopatin'
    In this unchecked syncope
    Gettin' vertical with vertigo
    Between you and me
    Come on, let's shake it loose
    We'll be together, yet free.

    I'll never tire of your attire
    For you bedeck me in desire.

    by Carolyn Glackin
    Let your love be my one and only adornment
    And that will be enough
    Let me be draped exclusively
    In the ornate finery that is you
    Let your kisses cover me from head to toe
    Like a sparkling gossamer gown
    Shining and resplendent
    And as soft as eiderdown
    Let the fiery heat of your passion
    Enrobe me with its sultry glow
    As that would be the finest garment
    This skin could ever know
    Decked out to the nines
    Oh how your ardour makes me shine
    Silky satin, so sublime
    It all withstands the test of time
    Never cold and never bare
    Despite the crispness of the air
    Your loving arms are always there
    They give me comfort, like a prayer
    Thus if I could choose one accoutrement
    I wouldn't mind the hue
    Style and fabric wouldn't matter
    So long as it was you
    So dress me in your love, my darling
    And I'll dress you in mine
    We'll revel in love's wardrobe
    Our sacred union, so divine.

    I guess I'll go now, fade away
    I'll bid adieu, I've naught to say
    Words are scarce when times are tough
    Please let me go, don't call my bluff
    The time has come, this now must end
    Please understand, I beg you friend
    You're burning bridges, I'm mending fences
    And there shall be no recompenses
    You've filled me up with sad saudade
    I should have known, I overstayed
    Sweet chantilly, linen, lace
    Forever strewn about your face
    And nothing dearer can e'er replace
    The truth of you, your saving grace
    You're building castles in the skies
    With rosy glasses o'er your eyes
    And here I stand as I surmise
    I'm better off without replies
    So goodbye kitchen, fare thee well
    Goodbye house of untold hell
    So long bedroom, I'll miss you most
    I'm there no more, I'll be a ghost
    Arrivederci, bon voyage!
    I'm taking leave of this montage
    The scene is set, the curtains drawn
    Goodbye old friend, adios, I'm gone.

    Gotta love that artwork, right?! That's one way to leave home, I suppose. ��

    UPDATE: I had a misunderstanding about Joey's previous correspondence and it turns out that he did not have his first procedure yet. What happened was that he and his mother were hit by a car while en route to the hospital and as a result of the accident, his hand was badly broken! Now he has to have an additional surgery tomorrow to correct that! I can't even believe this! Despite that unfortunate occurrence, Joey was in good spirits, just like always! What an admirable soul he is!!

    Also wishing a joyful and blessed Holi for all those who celebrate the festival of love and colors!! ❤������������

    Hey out there everyone! Hope one and all are feelin' fine! I wanted to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to all the love and support y'all so graciously poured in all day on my previous post for mi amigo Joey of @poetrydelivery!! I appreciate it so much!
    I heard from Joey earlier this evening, and he has made it through his first procedure like the champion that he is, but this is only the beginning and he has several more procedures to undergo as of yet, so please do keep the prayers coming on his behalf.
    One other relevant news pertains to my followers and my ability to follow in return. Firstly, I have always truly appreciated each and every one of my followers and supporters and I'm very thankful for y'all! The problem I'm facing is that the system maxes out at 10K. In other words, I've followed 10K members, and it won't allow me to follow a single one more. I do humbly apologize for that, because I really don't want anyone feeling bad or discouraged that I didn't follow back.
    I'm actively seeking a solution or at least some way around this. Perhaps I'll check through my list and find some old, inactive accounts that I can unfollow in order to follow current accounts.
    Thank you for your patience regarding this matter; and again, thank you very much for your kind support and presence!

    Several years ago, right here on this phenomenal forum, I had the good fortune of meeting a rather wonderful individual named Joey, of the @poetrydelivery account.
    Joey had turned up on one of my posts on that fortuitous day, and right away I became aware of what a warm and friendly, humorous and kindhearted individual he was/is.
    In fact, I often tell my querido amigo (dear friend), that él tiene el corazón más grande alrededor (he has the biggest heart around). I'm not kidding when I say that either, he truly does; and he also puts his whole heart into everything he does, including his writing.
    Joey pens a wonderful variety of short pieces and quotes; some of which are humorous, many are insightful, some are romantic, but all of them contain the essence of his good heart.
    He is also a wonderful supporter of so many of us throughout the forum, and he always has a kind and encouraging word to offer when commenting.
    If this world was inhabited by more people like my querido amigo, this crazy rock we're all spinning around on would be a far better place, I can tell you that for sure!
    At any rate, I suppose I should get to the point before I digress any further. So, here it is... Mi amigo Joey has gone through a tremendous amount of physical trials and tribulations in recent years, and he's had to undergo many corrective surgeries. On this very day, he is once again being admitted to the hospital where he'll patiently await his turn for another corrective surgery. In all, he may be in the hospital for up to a month.
    With all of that said, I would like to request your prayers and encouraging words for a very dear individual who spends his time selflessly encouraging so many of us. So please feel free to leave your comments for him on this post and don't forget to tag his account (once again it's @poetrydelivery), because it will help boost him and carry him through his time in the hospital.
    I thank you wholeheartedly in advance, as it means a lot to me too, that you would lend your prayers and support on Joey's behalf. ♥️♥️♥️

    Amigo, tienes esta cosa, ok? Eres un poderoso guerrero y siempre triunfas!! Esto ni siquiera es una cosa, en comparación con usted!! Te tenemos en esto, y también Dios! Todo estará bien. Cuídate amigo, y mantenme informado. Tanto amor para ti. ����������

    Nepenthe (pronounced nuh-pen-thee), which means "the one that chases away sorrow," is the fabled elixir that purportedly cured mental woes by way of inducing forgetfulness. Thank you for reading!

    Under celestine skies
    I await the blessed benediction of nepenthe
    The one earthly redeemer that can deliver us from untold mental anguish
    But dare I really take a sip?
    Dare I press this divine elixir
    Upon my thirsting lip?
    ©Carolyn Glackin 3/25/2021

    by Carolyn Glackin
    Tell me please, nepenthe
    Are you a blessing or a curse?
    And if I should imbibe you
    Will I be better, or much worse?

    Praytell, how can I find you?
    For you are not here in my grips
    Are you off gifting your elixir
    To some other willing lips?

    Oh dearest, don't ignore me
    Can't you see that I'm in need?
    With just one precious taste of you
    From haunting memories, I'm freed!

    Arise with me, dark lover
    For very soon, I think you'll see
    That the two of us together
    Always leads to victory!

    You're my healer and my hero
    And never do you fail me
    For you steal me from the wickedry
    Which so often doth assail me

    Nepenthe, don't be cruel
    Oh you beguile and you bewitch
    And then when I need you most
    You leave me high and dry like this?

    Come! Let me consume you!
    Let me absorb you deep within
    For then the healing process
    Can finally begin

    I shall forever sing your praises
    Oh so divine, your benediction!
    My dear, I crave you like a drug
    Won't you please grant me a prescription?

    Just one final time I'll ask
    As I await you fervently
    I'm swooning for you, love
    Seek me out, sweet nepenthe!
