My Life's Villain #UseYourWords July 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.


My words are:
scrumptious ~ villain ~ slowly ~ kaleidoscope ~ bathroom
They were submitted by: Dinosaur Superhero Mommy  (Thank you for such interesting and challenging words!!)


I don't know how it happened. 
It happened slowly.
Or maybe it happened quickly.
One moment I was living a simple life.
Walking around with a kaleidoscope worldview.
Suddenly I was the girl spending hours in the bathroom.
Beautifying myself.
Pampering myself.
Using scrumptious smelling lotions.
Wanting to look my best for you.
Going out on dates.
Making plans for the future. 
A future with you.
Oblivious to your true self.
The real you under the facades.
I wish I had always known the real you.
I wish I had been protected.
I wish my heart had never been broken. 
I wish I had never met you.
I wish my life story never included a villain.
I wish it never included you.

  3. I really liked this one! I've known a few villains like that myself years and years ago. This is my first time in the challenge and it is so fun seeing how all of these words are being used.

  5. I think we should all get one RESTART button, don't you? Wouldn't it be great to go back just once and change things?
