Alphabe-Thursday and Flash Friday 55 Combo!

Jenny Matlock


The Letter M is for Memories


Muddling through life..


a Myriad of Memories lurking
...in Murky subconscious depths.


Momentarily concealed...
but leaving their Musky trail within the Matrix of My Mind.


...Mysterious, Malignant, Meaningful.


Messy Memories...


Masquerading as Madness
beneath Masks of Melancholy, Manipulation and Mistrust.


"Must I Master these?" I find Myself Musing.
"Depends upon the Motivation," Memories Mutter back.

This 55 brought to you by the letter M. I love alliteration. Expertly crafted.

Prayer Girl said...

First, welcome to my blog. I appreciate your visiting and leaving a comment so we could meet.

I love this 55 and the letter M alliteration. My absolute favorite is the letter "P".....patience, prayer, practice, persistence, etc.
