You needed me (many years ago)

You needed me

But I left you alone for far too long

As long ago I had to turn away from the part of me

That was in need

Of so many things they could not give


In the end

You left me too

Making me face the utter depths

Of a seemingly unfathomable emptiness

And yet

It was a rich place

That Underground world I found

Painful as it was

Haunted by so very many

Lost ghosts

Sending up vapors and echoes

And only those brave enough to face

The emptiness

Know how full it is

And how much redemption lies

Within its icy


Churning depths

There at the base

I found a grieving widow

Dark as night

Who lost her child

The psyche never lies

In its images

And so it was I wept

And wept

But then the tears revealed a life

I lost the way to

The forgotten refrain of a song

So essential

Only its bittersweet melody

Could bring me life

And so it is now

I know these things to be sacred

To cry

To dance

To laugh

To long and ache

And finally to find a way

To embrace

All of those lost children

Whose ghosts came seeking me

In the land so very far away

All of those

Many years ago

"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.
