Behind these barricades

Behind these barricades

My heart was bursting

With love and desire

And need and hunger and wanting

These expressions of my soul

Longing to take root in world and body

But long ago

Inhabiting this heart and this body

Cane to feel too risky

Too raw, too unsafe

And so I began to disconnect and protect

This heart, this fire, this longing

I followed teachings that spoke of the perils of desire

Not realising how much pure desire was subverted

And was the hunger of my deep soul

My true self

Seeking to take root and blossom

But now I am awakening to love

Beyond these prison walls of disconnection and fear

To the realisation of how we all struggle

And how so little of it was personal

How much of fear we share

And my longing to be and live and express

Runs free like a river

I feel its power which is my power

Which is my soul and myself

Which is my love

And I open my heart

To embrace it all

"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.
