The littlest things remind me of you – a Poem

Grief is forever. It doesn’t go away; it becomes a part of you, step for step, breath for breath.

Jandy Nelson, The Sky Is Everywhere

Grief is weakness and strength; an ending and a beginning; a shattering and an anchoring; it is a journey without a predeterminable destination.

Wishing everyone happiness and light
and ending with a promise that the next post will be a joyous one…

Walled in, Left out – a Poem

There is a cost to every decision we make – there is gain, but also loss. How we find balance depends on factors that are different for all of us…

this Beleaguered heart
Bitter walls
of Hostile Disdain

Floundering in
Deep oceans
of the Darkest Despair

Did I save my barely beating heart only to lose my soul?
