Building a Better Life

Sometimes I drowned under unbearable memories

Pain that you caused is always under the surface

Pushing to the top

Making a nuisance

You don't know or care

Would rather drink it away

*

Well I'm more than that

Better than that

Stronger than you

My heart is full of love

I am the light of the world

I am the peace in the night

The sunrise on the horizon

A faint whisper on the air

Loves eternal embrace

*

Now my life is a straight path

No more pain do I feel

I am more than your evil

That will burn forever

In regret and hate

Whilst I make

The most of it

The Farm

The animals they waddled two by two

 the farmer marches through muddy goo

cows that moo

grass and grain

the pain of harvest 

animals and foods

economic disaster.

Written in response to Lady Jabberwocky prompt ‘Farm’

Owl

The Owl can fly when it wants to

If it sees a prey worthy of the flight

When the rain has exposed its location

*

Yet a man cannot run away when he wants to

So, the owl observes

As the men they drown in pain

The owl knows who is to blame

Hurt & Healing

Daisies grow in the flower bed

during the spring the sun beats them out

during the fall, they begin to wilt

winter is a blank skeletal stare

yet they are to come full circle 

for the daisies were never there

***

Your hurt and hate

has been negated

and I have seen

a beam of light

that will destroy your negative plight

***

Now you can heal

begin to reveal

and to feel

once again

strengthened through grace

empowered by God

a beautiful seedling

ready to yet again, grow from the soil.

Buy Me A Coffee

Love, Connection.

Seeing your love is the only thing that keeps me alive

"Oh, what have you to I?" 

Darting beneath the silver mirror

"I have to give you my love"

enchanting reflective lake

a cold cabin we meet

"... and your love is a fictional lie"

perches on the train line, rail

zapping hands we meet

together, we can flee

terror and hate

doubt and misfortune

swimming into the white clouds

angels surround, us

loving you.

Buy Me A Coffee

Alone

Together we can build a better life

but alone we may feel full of strife

we sit and we commute

we eat and we wait

patient is the night owl

who flies before dawn

... and our feelings overthrow our hearts

ice under the feet

waiting to meet, someone

when they arrive all the while

alone and empty

or so we think

Rain – a poem about the weather. Fitting since it’s hard rain at the moment!

Many people seem to be lonely, alone or wanting more company. Obviously, the last few years has been difficult and more isolating for everyone.

However, I looked at my own life and realised I too have become a victim of this loneliness. Before – or at least before the pandemic – I was perfectly content alone and being by myself. Only have I realised this last year has been particularly isolating for me and having developed a depression as well has made it difficult. I never considered being lonely a factor, but it is. I do interact with people, just not as much as I used too. Plus having lifelong health condition is itself a factor in depression too.

Why am I sharing this? Well, I wanted to talk about my feelings because I am sure others have felt this way too. Many of us go day to day without sharing a though or word with anyone. Talking to people is a great way to socialise and of course improve mental wellbeing. That doesn’t mean you have to talk about your feelings all the time, just that if you are lonely you are allowed to say that. Don’t be afraid to talk about your feelings.

It’s okay not to be okay. I reiterate this with love. I also feel like WordPress and my followers are an extended family. I enjoy reading all your posts and seeing your lives. Thank you for being a part of this wonderful platform and sharing your posts with me and others.

Ascending

On the seventeenth step to heaven

most people fall over

or fall into the ravine

dragged downstream

remembering that... everything they saw was a lie

all they wanted was to die.

Recent Photos from a Day out

The Trafford Center, Manchester.

The biggest indoor super shopping center in England. (probably)

A massive section of the Trafford Center I don’t usually go in. Already decorations have been put up. It truly is a magical place at Christmas!

I’m hoping to get some proper days out during the holidays, enjoying good food and places, people and ideas! I’ll be sure to show you the food when I go! Hopefully it is not too pricey wherever I choose.
