A light shines in the dark

But sometimes it is hard to find

When words of defeat

Echo on repeat

Peddling the hamster wheel of suffering

Embedded shame

Where it would be better to let go

And reclaim

A sense of joy in life

A little light

Sometimes these harsh winds blow

And as you fight

To stay alive

It gets harder and harder

To find the point

And yet even emptiness

Can bring relief

Your soul.. oh how it longs for sleep

To find the way back beneath the covers

To drown in the kisses of a feverish lover

To float in the nocturnal spaces of dreams and lust

To wake to sunlight at dawn

Or sunset at dusk

Rain or sparks of fairy dust

Scattered round the room

Soothed as you feel the satiation

Of the longing

To be comforted

"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.
