Grey days

Autumn 2.jpg

Grey skies draw you in

Cosy in cuddly clothes

You don’t want to venture far

But wish instead

To light a fire and stay close by your soul

Warm comfort here

Far away from dark skies

Even while you struggle with deeper things

There is no longer that yawning inner emptiness

You knew before

Drawing on your insides

Grey skies

Remind you of what dreaming is

And of darker bleak times

Long gone

But deep amidst the loss

You now are finding gratitude

And inner calm

All that hurting

Birthed artistry

Creative self expression

Would these things ever have been born in you

Had you not known that inner emptiness

And the desertion of those

Who claimed to love you

But then turned on their heel

When true love was asked of them?

Blaming you

You were never the leaver

You stayed close

You knew what had most value

But you made yourself wrong for so many years

You were never wrong darling

You only ever loved

And you have known great trauma

So now on the grey days

You can honour and need no longer

Fear the deep and dark

That makes others run in fear

Let those who run away run

They were never meant to stay

And your soul cannot always demand

A companion

On the dark road

That leads deep within

Abandonment trauma burned there

All aflame

But your soul bore it

Not only for you

But for your ancestors too

And this is not the final chapter

In the book of your life

For your soul path has shown

Brighter days

Always follow the grey
