Closing another door

Closing another door

I did something brave

I closed the door

On someone who meant

A lot to me

I finally

Gave myself closure

To something

That was holding me back

Having carved its’ initials

On my already frightened

And fragile heart

I waited too long

For something I knew

Was never

Going to be mine

I didn’t want it

To be mine

I only wanted to travel

A short while

On his journey

To help him see

That there are still

Good people out here

Good people like me

Who are meant

To be friends

And not enemies

I reached out to

Another tortured soul

Recognising the signs

Of hurtful despair

But I gave too much

And took back so little

Never once

Asking for more

And now that I feel

So empty

It’s the right time

To close that door.

Pain

PAIN

Pain –

Such a small word

For what can be

A very big thing…

Letting go: 10. Family

Letting go: 10. Family

I must accept the fact that my family, are who and what they are.  And the simple truth is, that they are very unlikely to ever change.

Therefore, I must.

Nothing has really changed, apart from me!  Sx ❤️

Letting go: 10. Family
Letting go: 10. Family

The quiet ones.

The quiet ones.

Those of us who suffer

Tend to be silent

With our struggles

And the ones

With nothing wrong

Complain…

Have no regrets

Have no regrets

Have no regrets

Don’t, not say

What needs to be said

Don’t be hesitant

Or wait

It could end up being

All too late

And it will feel

Like an utter waste

A part of you

Will forever die

Just because you thought

You still had time

By then it’s too late

To be asking why

There is no other moment

No ‘other’ time

Don’t let people leave you

Bearing empty hearts

If you can fill it

With forgiveness

Joy or love

Once they’ve gone

There is no other

Second chance

Don’t leave things

Unfinished

Or undone

Make your peace

Or make amends

Tie up those loose ends

Have no regrets

Open your mouth

Speak your truth

And say the words

That need to be said

In loving memory of my beloved great aunt, who reached the age of 99, but sadly slipped away on Tues 6thAug 2019, at 1.30 pm. ❤️❤️

Hey baby!

Hey baby!

Being called:

“beautiful”, “gorgeous”,

“sexy” or “hot”

Is not a compliment

Because, hey baby

I aspire to

So much more

Than just that!

Link to: This is me

A heart full of graves

A heart full of graves

I’ve come to accept

Death, for what it is

A simple fact of life

It’s nothing we can

Escape from

From it, we cannot hide

This kind of closure

Is the definite kind

As we grow older

The more people

We lose

As we grow older

We accept with grace

That part of our heart

Is full of graves
