this is where i sit tonight….eyes down, no one daring to look….

Worldly Winds

Broken Reflection






Shhh, don’t tell

don’t let on

that you’re in hell

hush now


Your lips are pursed

don’t tell the doctor

or the nurse

eyes down


What lurks within

can’t be without

masked by a grin

and bear it


So well hidden

the mortal sin

guilt well ridden

(Angels don’t sing)


The mask of norm

slips on by

distorts the form

stiff upper lip


Word to the wise

soured apple

of your eyes

windowless soul


Darkness falls

eclipses all

no voice can call

chin up

    Don’t think, Don’t feel, Don’t tell! those were commandments we learned and learned them well.
    tonight, even with your eyes down, I know that you can breathe and while breathing, I want you to catch hold of all your sisters who reach out our hands and hearts to hold you close, to comfort you, to weep in silence with you, to love and nurture you.

      I felt them all….all of the hands reaching out sending magic through their fingers to me….women are so incredible….two pals came over and the rest of you held space for me from all over…it was powerful good medicine….how easily its done too! perhaps we need a small circle crisis line….thank you dear one for being there for me, i’m not at asking unless its beyond my control…
