Light flooding locked dungeons


In your room

This accepting space

Opens the door to my heart

There is nothing I cannot say

Or share with you

You know my inner life and history of losses so well

And so today

When I read my poem

And cried

Touching base with my soul

As you spoke of light flooding locked dungeons

I saw my father trapped inside

And as the image transformed

Scott’s face appeared

You are there with me

Your silent presence never absent

Containing my soul

I longed for this all of my life

A loving space a home

And together on this journey for nearly 3 years

You have been so consistent

Always there for me

Even when it was better for you to say


This time you need to hold yourself

Through being the consistently emotionally available parent

I never had

You have given me such a gift

A place to unravel the twisted up agonies of my life

A place to come to know the feelings

Of the darkness and light

I held inside

The gift you have gifted me is beyond price

And never once have you given me

Unsolicited advice

So today when I heard my inner child cry

It was to adult me she turned first

It was adult me who answered

And it was only you

Who helped me grow this awareness inside

And now I knoe I will never again

No matter who leaves

Be utterly forsaken

"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.
