Distraction

You’re most vulnerable Absent distraction Nothing to hide your Bubbling emotion   You thought the reverse That with time and space You’d at last find a Break from your mind’s race   But there is no calm No stillness and ease When really, deep down The soul is diseased   Image: Edvard Munch, The DayContinue reading “Distraction”

Broken

Dear Love, why does it hurt so much When all the pieces fall apart An aching wound, a bleeding hole; Though I once yearned to be alone Sweet love how did it all go wrong When was it that our paths diverged?

And let go of pain As our voices rejoice, Entwine through the air  Continue reading “Won’t you”

Confusion

Eyes, darting from left to right Heart, split in two Soul, dwelling half in dark and half in light   Road, forking east and west Mind, grappling Body, yearning for from this search, a rest   Spirit, torn midst night and day Questioning, is it true or false? Unknowing of the answer – is sheContinue reading “Confusion”
