Life Is…


Fallen on a beam of moonlight,

Life is born in struggle and pain,

The warmth and swaddled comforts,

Happiness,

Beauty,

Ugliness,

Sweetness,

Despair…

Love and kindness,

Passion,

Sensuality,

Breathless rapture,

Darkness and light,

Maturity and peace,

Wisdom…

… or bitterness,

Loss and bereavement,

Loneliness…

For no matter what,

We die alone,

In struggle and pain,

or in sleep if we’re lucky…

We ascend through the gate

On a beam of moonlight,

Back to real life;

The physical just a misty dream.

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....
