Awash with emotion

A wash with emotion

Today I am all over the place. Every emotion I can think of consumes me in waves. I know why I just don’t know how to get rid of them all. Today’s tune in my head has been the Proclaimers ‘you broke my heart’.  It seems awfully apt. Not just one person breaking my heart but many. Not just for love, but friendship, kindness and compassion. People are so good at stomping all over you to get what they want. If only they stopped and thought what it does to the other person?

Pain burning raw inside me

My heart is broken

In a thousand different pieces

By too many people

Who just don’t think?

Unrequited love,

I can’t say those words

I can feel it though

It breaks my heart

You stopped the friendship

After all these years

Too busy for me now

Yet I now shed tears

No one to listens

Hold my hand.

You stole my kindness

You broke my heart

Sucked the living daylights

I now fall apart

Can anyone fix me?

Just a little compassion

Is all I ask?

I am fed up of feeling

That my heart is torn

I want it mended

Loved, cared for

I want to laugh again

Pride

Bumped head

What a surprise

Fine on the way down

Crunch on the way up

the shelf moved

The world did not move for me

I winced

My eyes watered

Hand on lump

Deep breath

Standing up

Closing eyes

Imagining stars

Nothing broken

Nothing marked

Only my pride

A Thousand Stories

beach hut

A thousand stories,

behind every door

a pink one a blue one

stripes in bright colours

a beach hut of tales

waiting to be told.

Rotten doors,

broken locks

peeling paint

salt air pummeling

sun scorching blistering

screeches of seagulls

laughter and tears

a thousand stories on

A trip to the beach

Chain of thought

My chain of thought is broken

the link undone

i try hard to remember

the thought has gone

as it floated away

i tried to catch it

it slipped through my fingers

i couldn’t hold onto a thread

the perplexed look on my face

as i squeeze my eyes shut

but its definitely gone

as i push the link back together

If its supposed to come back

it will

The cheek of it

Stillness surrounds me, peace is here

To my right I hear the goats bells,

The deep clanging fills the air

To my left to cows bellow loudly

Their noise jumbles with the bells

Behind me the birds chatter joyously

Their music tries to fill the air

Above me is the fly highway

They buzz backwards and forwards with speed.

They are nosier than everything else

They have broken the stillness and peace

The cheek of it all.
