At the night fare

Two days after we first met


When we saw a shooting star

You opened your arms

And asked me to jump aboard

The rollercoaster

Did you see the fear in my eyes

(I fear the ups more than the downs)

While for you

It was the other way around

Your ideal vision

Was of plain sailing

With a fair ocean breeze

Behind our backs

But my love

Don’t you know enough by now

For love is a roller coaster

Both of our hearts

Had known great depths

Enormous voids

And aching emptiness

And it was too much to ask

That this new ride

We embarked upon

Would not summon up old ghosts

For the heart and soul

That has been sunk by loss

Is so very far

From bullet proof

Upward movements are accompanied always

By downward swings

Following thoughts of dread

As fear reminds our souls

Of what can be stolen

If we risk jumping on board

That ride

And fighting the highs and lows

Is all self defence


Keeping everything shallow

For nothing is ever sure

In this dance of love

So never forget

My love

That this kind of ride

Is always

A rollercoaster

And how much courage

We need

To brave that ride

"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.
