Poising here
on the crest of waves
that won’t peak

for words from mouths
that won’t speak

your trembling soul
You’re refused

Here instead
are options displayed
you can’t choose

shown to you here as

Nothing to gain now
but distress

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

  1. Denial, deception, trickery, distress go hand in hand so well and you have given me a clear sense of this. A love somewhat lost I would suggest. Well done Helen, so much once again to ponder!!

    Years ago, but stayed in this position far too long…you explained it quite well.

  3. You describe, incredibly well, how it feels. Has my heart racing, but aching, too. Ancient history. 🙂

    This piece and “The Fear” are just too phenomenal for words…
