Like a healing watershed

Wash away the barricades

My false ego and my head erect

To stem the bleeding

Of the wound

Fed by ancestral rivers of pain

I cannot claim

Or falsely name as personal

Instead on those days when

This all embracing abandonment depression


Eclipsing present happiness

I will listen to music

And draw close to you

Seeking healing and comfort

Upon your soft soft

Ocean of fur

Breathing in rhythm with you

So this tide can run on through

Cleansing my soul

Taking me home

To that most deep and profound

Healing place

Of inner feeling



And truth

  1. I find the tears never stop, they just have longer dry spells between the showers……..

    “How many rivers of tears must we cry
    Before all the deepest wells run dry”
