Get shot of

Tuesday, January 1, 2019. Daily Brit Wit.

Get (or be) shot of: 

Phrase, British informal 

Get (or be) ride of.

Happy New Year, my friends!! Thank you for making my blogging experience something wonderful and memorable. ♥️


“Lovers left lamenting
spoiling for war
they shall never receive

insanity smells
like cinnamon
and moth-eaten jumpers

take my hand
feel the immortality
buzzing beneath veins
and feeding on peculiarities

You always think
a sensual touch from me
will spark you
perhaps I’ll share with you
my ever-lasting secrets
as if immortality is contagious.

I am not easily beguiled
nor am I in the business
to be shot of my immortal powers.

Paper towns
burn to the ground
and settlers weep
and curse me,
yet it is their ignorance
igniting the destructive paths
they wish to seek.”

    1. Thanks lady! It’s always lovely hearing from you. Hope life has been kind to you? I’ve been feeling meh round here, so have even taking a break. Still not sure how I feel. But your words are a balm to the soul. Happy New Year and sending you hugs right back ♥️🤗


      1. Life has been exceedingly kind Kelsey … let me reach over and give you a right royal hug to deal with the “meh”!! I’ve had enriching extended travel, damn the finances lol
        Breaks are good for us …. after a year of posting twice a week I didn’t post anything for two months. How liberating! We can post when we damn well please …. let’s make 2019 a stunner ! xox

      2. I’m so happy to hear you’re still traveling! Sounds liberating and absolutely freeing on the soul…! But yeah, damn the finances lol
        Breaks are rather important— I’ve been rather blasé with my time and writing because I got into the habit of it. Kinda forgot I didn’t have to be on a schedule. Still adjusting and learning. So thank you for the reminder AND the hugs! Take care of yourself Diana and here’s to a fabulous 2019! Xoxo
