darkness falls

as shadows crawl

along the floor

and i dissolve

beneath the flood

so much love

and longing

witnessing a world

of souls

desperate for connection

starving for attention


and affection

it truly brings my heart undone

to feel the depth of this

the wound you bear

there was a time that despair

was the only language my heart could speak

until my soul fell into silence

then a river of love rose

and it held the truth of everything

as it washed my soul clean

of that utter loneliness

that runs so deep


the ache you feel

is truly never lost on me

I sense it deep inside my soul

too long ago we left behind

the loving mother

devaluing the precious gifts of


and presence

for is not a tender love

as essential to the soul

as air

and as silently as they scream

our needs for nurture are never absent

as shadows fall

I embrace all of this in the silence

are these not r

the rumblings of a deep awakening

rising up

in a world so often starved

for love

"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.
