The Sigh and The Bliss

The Sigh and The Bliss

this crater of longing is endless; it’s madness. I look to you to fill it. be sane for me, be peace, be love. I look to you to complement me. be my other half, my saviour, my light. because this pit in my stomach is aching; it’s taking me down. and I want...
The Space

The Space

  They sat in their garden facing one another and yet unable to look up. He wore sunglasses in any case. When she tried to see his eyes, she could not. Perhaps it was better that way. The space between them was heavy, laden with fear though they carried it...
Long, Lost Breath

Long, Lost Breath

The noise in my head is simply the rumblings of what I imagine other people think of me. And only I can shut that out. Only I can take that long, lost breath and choose again. Again. It’s getting better. The conversations that used to tighten me up and set my...
Silence Teaches Too

Silence Teaches Too

The talking masks the racing thoughts in my mind, or so I think.  I talk loud and fast when I am not at peace.  For fear of the silence, I speak.  To drown out the truth, I talk. I want to teach and to learn, but then I remember: Silence teaches too. I resist it.  I...

What Love Looks Like

What Love Looks Like

I’ll admit it.  These past few weeks I have done myself wrong.  I have left my soul malnourished, heavy and dark.  I have not fed it properly.  I have denied it love and light. That’s what unforgiveness does. I’ll tell the truth.  I’ve put up a...
Something as Simple as Boys & Girls

Something as Simple as Boys & Girls

Jumping the Highs to Skip the Lows

Jumping the Highs to Skip the Lows

I am having a kick-ass day today. My heart is open. I am calm within. I am breathing deeply, smiling with fervour, taking it all in stride. I love days like this. And yet inside there’s a little squeaky voice that whispers “Enjoy it while it lasts!”....
