I've been looking for a place to share some ugly poetry, some unfinished stories, a mish-mash of all the things I want to write. And I want you to feel free to join in with me. Don't worry about it being finished or beautiful or published. Be brave. Let us create. Here. I'll go first.
I am an old woman in this young girls body
My flesh and inabilities stretched right across these bones
Your fragile weight precariously placed upon my shoulders
I love you don't you see? and that is our sweet dilemma
My love runs too deep like an ache un-relieving
You ache too and with this your aches become mine
I can see our tapestry once woven
But the seams split apart in the centre now
We ache together but in different rooms separate places worlds away
do you feel this too?
I wonder I wander Often
Wonder if anyone can be further even with this proximity
I long to rub your ache away to feel your withered fingers but you, too, are old
Wise and old and only a boy
You'll sleep soon, I know and when you wake I'll be here
Our stories spread wide our exhaustion worn thin
And you'll know my love my achy, desperate love a love in which I've had for you your whole life long
When you link up you'll be eligible to win a huge Choose Brave print bundle featuring my own hand lettered prints. I'm excited to read your words!
