I Nominate My Bezzie | Daily Prompt: Person of the Year

Published June 13, 2013 by carlyjellis

You’re asked to nominate someone for TIME’s Person of the Year. Who would it be, and why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us BIG

The person I would nominate for TIME’s Person of the Year is not famous and comes from my everyday life but to me he is the stand out person of the year and I don’t know what I would have done without him. He is of course my best friend and platonic soul mate, Matthew.

We have known each other for what seems like forever, lost touch for a number of years but have come back together bigger and stronger than ever before. We share laughter and tears, ups and downs. We support each other and are always there for each other with a listening ear or a glass of alcohol 🙂

Matthew has been a rock to me and has helped me through some difficult, emotional times, has been my shoulder to cry on when I needed it and has given me a kick up the backside when also needed. Just like a best friend should do.

You honestly could not wish to meet a more caring, considerate, thoughtful and fun gentleman to spend your time with. I am thankful everyday for having such a good friend like Matthew in my life & I hope to spend many more years as his partner in crime 🙂

VOTE MATTHEW!!

P.S: When he reads this he will probably be sick!! hahaha

Icecream

Published June 3, 2013 by carlyjellis

You are a beautiful sight to behold

A delicious beacon of summer days

A memory of childhood never forgotten

A taste which puts a smile on your face

 

You come in so many flavour’s

Each person has their favorite one

Some like it plain, some like it fancy

But for me there can be only one

 

You sit alone in a waffled cone

Sauce dripping down your swirled body

A chocolate flake completes the final stage

Of a treat that is oh so heavenly

 

So lets hear it for the ice cream

Oh more specifically a 99

For what in life could there possibly be

That is oh so tasty and oh so fine

Still Of The Night

Published June 3, 2013 by carlyjellis

In the still of the night

Whilst the world is asleep

She sits alone in the dark

With not a thought of counting sheep

 

The television is a distraction

A noise that breaks through the silence

But even that can’t stop the thoughts

Of which now make no sense

 

She checks her social media over and over again

In the hope of through the night she will find a friend

But nobody is around so she soldiers on alone

Oh how she doesn’t want to live her life completely on her own

 

Her mind comes alive on nights like this

Her thoughts consumed with so many whys and what if’s

Living in her present, remembering her past

Being hopeful for the future of finding a love that will last

 

No longer is she afraid of what others say or think of her

No longer a girl, no longer a child, no longer a quiet murmur

She has finally learned to love herself and accept the woman she is

A strong independent woman who like others battles with loneliness

 

The silence somehow is deafening as the night lingers on and on

She wishes for morning to break the darkness

So the birds wake up and sing their song

 

But whilst the still of the night remains here

Whilst the stars in the sky shine so bright

In the darkness she no longer feels fear

For a new day in her life is in sight
