Grief circles

Maybe grief is a circular thing

Maybe some times my grief has wings

Maybe sometimes too

Grief is like a bird that dives

Or a mermaid who tries

To reach the bottom of a well

Who knows what mysteries

Grief will tell

Or when the hell

It will catch you completely unawares

Hitting you with a wave of nausea

As you try to climb the stairs

In your mind

To get some relief

From the lack of sleep

Which profound grief

Visits upon you

Over those dark days and night

In the painful aftermath

Of the deepest tragedies

Let’s face the truth

You could never ever fully

Give voice to the blood and guts

Of this full grief reality

And so possibly

For as long as you live

Maybe your grief will

Have you

Running around in circles

Desperately seeking

Ways to leave it behind

Until there is no way

To find the way back

To what you were so desperately

Running from

And yet grief will still wait


It will lurk in the wings of your deepest soul

Attending the moment when

You finally fall

Or surrender yourself

To the place

Where grief leaves you hollowed out

No longer capable

Of making a fast get away

Beseeching you

To open yourself

Pore by pore

To the pouring out of its


Its heartbreak

Its undeniable


To reveal

Its fullest

Deepest reality

"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.
