Without a Trace

It really shouldn't come as a shock to me that I've lost nearly all of my Journalspace posts. Google got tired of holding them for me. The important ones, I mean. I also failed to download the zip file that was sent to me, before the new owners took over the Journalspace domain. (Stupid, stupid stupid!!)

I'm trying to remember one very short poem I placed there. It isn't even a good poem, but I liked it because it reminded me of my human frailty. It said very loudly that I'm not a saint, and that being married doesn't make me immune to the appeal of men.

It went something like this:

I know the way my eyes glide over you
like a pair of ice dancers.
If they linger in one spot too long
(your lower lip)
I'll burn.

I sure hope google doesn't get tired of holding my cached entries!! I still can't believe 5 years of my writing is gone. Not all of it but the really important ones of course. **sigh** I don't know if I'll ever blog the same..

I know what you mean. I feel like I've lost my mojo. And my muse.

I went to a cache right after the crash, but didn't keep any other than a short story.
I'm feeling much more comfortable here, but really miss some JSers who didn't follow us.

Nice poem =)

I want to ask you a "work" related question but I did not want to post it on your blog... email me when you get a chance.

I like the poem too. Will it burn as much as the boots?

And I didn't do anything with the zip file either - didn' know we had to - yikes

MauritaMason said...

Kate, same here.

Marty, I'm on my way.

Lerm, it would burn like hellfire. And yep, the link is useless now. It just takes you to the (new) journalspace login page.

reminds me of the phrase....just because you are on a diet, it doesn't mean you can't admire the menu.......

MauritaMason said...

yacky, amen!

What zip file? I missed something for sure.

MauritaMason said...

j, some (not all) JS members who subscribed to pro access through Paypal were emailed a link to a downloadable zip file containing their PM's and posts. I never even looked at mine, because I thought I would have access to it for a while. Wrong!

jadedj said...

Well dang. I never got one and I did pay through paypal. Oh well, I guess that really does end it.

LERMONTOV said...

MM - I flicked a couple of extra pictures of the Chateau to the gmail addy on your blog - pls let me know if they arrive

Lerm, received and enjoyed! Thank you!

Knifeboy said...

Wow. That's a powerful piece of very short poetry. Very well done! Thank you for sharing it.

theredhead said...

Mine is all gone. I had stopped paying awhile back and I had no real idea how to look for the archives on Google. Oh well.

MauritaMason said...

Knifeboy, thanks. Glad you enjoyed it.

trh, tragic, isn't it? I almost feel like I'm suffering from amnesia, because I'd stuck so many memories there.
