Death wish

Death wish

You steal in

When we are exhausted

All the way down to the marrow of our bones

When we feel that life has gone

Too far down highways and byways

We never wanted or wished to travel

And all the things we loved or hungered and hoped for

Have dissolved or disappeared

Leaving only ghostly whispers of tendril pulls

Inside our souls

Weariness takes us

As we lie down in a field

Too exhausted to move

With memories running over and over

Of things we could never fully tell the horror of

Locking our energy up

Within hidden rooms

And corridors of doom

Here is the place

We must try not to stay alone

For too long

And although the exit lies

Along a labyrinthine pathway

We must try to find it

With what small morsel of will

We can summon from deep within

The emptiness

Or else death wish will take us down

Burying our souls

Under the smothering weight

Of a hopelessnes

Too heavy for our soul to bear

"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. I can only imagine… both of my parents are elderly and ill and my brother has terminal brain cancer. I’m living on edge all the time. I’m not sure how I am going to handle the possibility of losing all 3 of them in the not so distant future. Thanks for the love ❤
