Holding onto love


Holding onto the love I feel

Helps me to see when either you or I

Are reacting in fear

I do not know the inner workings of your soul

The silent pain you carry

Or the struggle you had to survive

And in order to gain an inner clarity

Hold onto love

Especially when things are difficult

I can still use my sword

When I need to cut away

The binding cords of entrapment

The tangled up brambles of self illusion and defense

That keep me away from sensing

The hidden and vulnerable soft spot

Of your inner child’s heart

Love is a choice

And so is fear

When I hold on to love

I choose to see the good in you

Beneath the wounding and the pain

A good you may never get to live or realize

When my perspective shifts

From emotional insight and clarity

Becoming darkly clouded

By attack, blame


Shame and fear

"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.
