Gone to ground

Embrace .jpg

At times like these

It is better not to speak

Of the dark place I find myself in


As we move towards the time when

Sun stands still

Having travelled as close to the horizon as possible

Dark of winter

Is a time I struggle most

Is a time when animal body

Most longs to draw within

Pulling closed the shutters

Going to ground

Happy just to feel the silent hum

Of earth’s heartbeat silently pulsing

Through quietened skin

As reminders of painful empty times

Echo this refrain

Dont you know you will never escape

Don`t you know

You will be stuck in this hell forever


So when you ask how I am

And I tell you I cannot breathe

That the ghosts are surrounding me again

I should not mistake your silence for lack of care

For maybe what is felt most deeply in the heart

Of another’s pain

When we truly love

Cannot fully find expression in words


Oh but how my animal body longs for yours

To rest and find the comfort of skin on skin

In that silent place of connection

Where pain and loneliness are erased

In that healing place that exists

Far far far beyond words.

"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.
