Sadness like rain



You fell down like the rain

In my soul

While raindrops ricocheted on a tin roof

I could feel

The tears forming in the corner of my eyes

But this is not a deep, dark, painful sadness

As in all those years gone by

This is more a gentle melancholy

Silently descending

That speaks of a home coming

An intouchness with my soul

And brings me comfort

I am alone

But I don’t feel alone


How can I be alone

When I feel this much at home inside?

I look around and see so many blessings

The road to here

Was painful, dark and confusing

But now I find myself

In the deep dark gentle wildness

Of my heart

And I feel

Completely held

Completely at one

Completely home

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.

  1. ‘authenticity’ comes to mind when i read this extremely powerful offering. you can’t fake that – and others will have a much harder time faking anything with you. happy new moon in scorpio to you, emerging one. imho, this calls for celebration and/or ritual to hold this space of truth like the rock that it is.
    so very happy that You *authored* this.
