Would I look?

Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would probably look closer, more information to obtain
I might want to support you in your struggle to survive
To try to hold a mirror to the you
behind the pain and strife
I would want to demonstrate the power of belief
Particularly those negatives that can become life’s thief
I would look for signs, that you could love yourself
A must to heal that pain, and to transend the past
Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would look closer more information to obtain

Gossamer wings

You brushed my life, with gossamer wings

Held captivated by your promises of things
Then you flew away, leaving an indelible mark
A gap, a need, a place that felt so dark
Changing my soul forever, all for naught
But the life cycles of butterflies are short
From this memory springs
Love,Yearning,Sadness, Learning and Strength

Find inner calm?

​Rejection always a bitter gall

Dejection written through inner walls

Emotions built up through the years

Confidence never deployed, negative image fears

Wanting to be loved, to be recognised

Hiding needs under a thin disguise

Each rejection, underlines the lack

Stepping forward, no going back

Needs to be held and validated

Instead gives love ,uncompensated

Alone but not alone

Injured inside, feelings not outgrown

Searching for love always disappointed

Living life in ways disjointed

Needs to validate the self

Find inner happiness, get off the shelf

Stemming the tide

​Rest, recuperation, renewal, regeneration

What do you need to heal the wounds

Put your life back on a firm foundation

Do you have a special place, bookmarked outside the rat race

Or a place within your mind

Where you stash any hurts until you can rewind

Sanity, surety, safety, success

What strategies do you have to cope

When life throws brick bats and you are feeling low

That anchor you, that give you hope 

Do you have a plan, or ride the storms in all their forms

If cast adrift

Where do you find the lift

Delve inside, find love, then strength to stem the tide.

World off kilter

​Bubbling and brewing emotional stirring

Life’s machinations whizzing and whirring

World off kilter, scandals abound

Headlines thunder, catastrophe surrounds

Belief tattered, bashed and scattered

May need to dive within,  get validated

Bubbling and brewing emotional stirring

Life’s machinations whizzing and whirring
