• The Collector

    He is my favourite hiding place,I stash my fears there,in the lining of his heart. He keeps them in pockets, turns them over in his hands,running a thumb in circles,over their surface,'til they're smooth, transformed,and returned to me:smaller, simpler, and rounded. He does this seamlessly,calmly.  They come back not quite so heavy. He will be a wise old man,

    An envelopeYou two areAs you protect and link InsideYou overlap and divergeSpilling your memoriesAnd merging onwards You close it sometimesCarefullyNever tear it You retrieve each other back ......... I open itAnd I see a pullIt presses you togetherAs it should be Your envelopeIs sealed nowNo destination needed It’s freeIt’s free for it’s journey ...........

  • Patterns : Relationship (Ctrl +Alt + Del)

    I arrived with time to spare at counselling today.  I noticed the lady beside me in the waiting area looked like Bettie Page; short fringe, long dark hair, 50s style I can only dream of. My counsellor arrived and led me to a new room. It was softly lit and had a decorative bowl of rocks on the table where I plonked my water bottle. One had a groove on  it that would exactly fit my thumb. ...

    Love is notonly one thing; butterflies chasing diamond rings. Love is not exclusive to one person, but findsmany others to which it can bind. Love is notreserved solely for romantic partners but is often seen as such. Love is small gestures; The feel of a kitten's fur, a friends laughter,forget about 'happy ever after'. Love is happy often now, talking with friends, family, partners.  But most of allLove is for everyone.

    For beautiful Emersyn I see her in the skyAs the birds flyReaching for you I hear herThrough the breezeAnd the leavesAs she walks by In her fairy gardenShe’s always thereWith her rainbow She waitsWith her pot of goldHolding you tight You’ll meet againWhere the circle joinsAnd all the coins from her potWill spill from heaven ❤️

  • The Journey for Love and Peace

    I was born in a village near Nine Question Hill, where Chinese Emperor Shun was buried. My father went to university and then had a job in Tianshui, Gansu, China.In October 2000, my father was killed in a traffic accident. I flew back home to support my mother, yet sadly she too died soon after. I felt a terrible loss at my parents’ deaths and was so regretful that I couldn’t help my mother more.In ...

    Touching the light You touch the gold in meThe underneathThe shimmering bright Sometimes it’s quietIn my heartSometimes suicidalBut you touch the light Embracing every prickly soulEvery angry thoughtEach cold dayI grow closer to my goal Of never reaching the up or over thereJust being hereClearNot being wholeAnd not minding at all

I dont expect most people to be proud of me or anything like that because I know I am the one who did it to myself. But years ago if you would have told me that I wouldnt be self ...

  • 99% Real : 1% Mania

    OH! That 1%. If only I could be real for 100% of the time. Would the grass have been greener for me, my family and friends? I fear it would not, life being life. It is just a rash of wishful thinking. That gremlin 1% precipitates, spontaneously, while working, knocking out reality in an instant. Like the wind blowing out a candle. Then I find myself trying to make everything right when it is out ...

    So here it is, my letter to God. Dear God, I asked for strength, and you gave me difficulties to make me strong. I asked for wisdom, and you gave me problems to solve. I asked for prosperity, and you gave me brain and brawn to work. I asked for courage, you gave me danger to overcome. I asked for love, you gave me troubled people to help. I asked for favours, and you gave ...
