break it down for me
you splinter little parts of me
as wood under my skin
casting reasoning to the wind
talk to me ~repair the damage
the ‘kitchen sink’ once again
dragged up ~ the already resolved
counsellors said a waste of time
don’t walk away, I say sorry
I don’t know why
your words angrily whispered
arms flail in the air
stringed by an invisible puppeteer
at least spoken words
give a chance
only lends itself
to confusion ~ doubt
pacing round the room
tension strung like wire
tears I cry watching you
you don’t realise
you’re ignorant to
day to day
reached a T-intersection
both going different ways
we travelled the same road
once ~ now the fork divided
I’ll fight for you
I’ll fight for us
we can make this work
but break it down for me
so I can cease this hurt

I wrote this some time back and strangely over the last few days of not being around too much, my enthusiasm has waned a little for writing. Perhaps the pressure of writing the Service and another to do for the 30th December, perhaps the Christmas events …and well life taking precedence.
Thank you for all those who commented on my last post (Leave of Absence) I apologise that I haven’t had time to comment individually to you all – but I think you know how grateful I am for you reading & your comments – so thank you.
I know this isn’t a Christmas Spirit piece and I am sure I will get my mo-jo back soon and I shall be writing a post just before Santa arrives.

Strong passionate piece. I can feel the tug and pull.
Be well Mumsy. You’re doing amazing work with the services. A special lady to take on such heavy work during the holidays. Be kind to yourself
Ah the word FICTION left me without less fear 🙂
Good luck with your writing for the job!
I thought it best to put it for that reason ~smiles. Thank you E one service written for Tuesday, the other starting to write 27th. xx
Awesome are you still HAPPY
that I am E 🙂 ~ thank you xx
Thank you darling. I’m taking care – just a little fatigued with all the pre Christmas activities combined with the Service writing & conducting. Writing as I was, has to slow down for a little while. Appreciate your kindness as always. Hugs xx
I think this is a busy and stressful time of year in any case and with your extra duties, it is no surprise that a little of your writing mojo has waned. I would imagine that you are plain exhausted! I really enjoyed this piece and am glad that you shared it and I look forward to the New Year and reading more of your work. 🙂 Take care and have a lovely festive season. x
Hello Jade – thank you so much, yes I think it’s finally hit me, but I’ll get through (I have no choice but not) Thank you for liking the piece and for reading and following – appreciated. Wishing you a lovely Christmas to you and yours also ~ thank you Jayde. xx
Ouch what a sad turn in the relationship ~ Hope things work out for the (fiction) couple ~
Its the time for a lot of stressful activities so take it easy ~ Wishing you Merry Christmas and lovely holiday ~ Take care ~
Yes this couple were only in my head ~ but I am sure many have experienced it.
Thank you Grace for your kindness and support as always and I wish you and your family a lovely Christmas also ~ xx
Too much going on this time of year, your brain gets turned inside out sometimes. At least that’s how it is for me. Take it easy for a while. You’ll get your mojo back.
Yes so many things on at once, but I shall be okay. I just feel a tad guilty not reading others at the moment and commenting, but once I am over the Services and Christmas I shall return to normal duties 😉 Thanks Tess. xx
A powerful piece! Take the time to do your preparation, Jen. It’s a busy time of year for many of us.
My brain is slightly frazzled at this point ~ but I’m soldiering on!! Thanks sweet xx
I’m glad this is a past history piece. I was a little worried! Thinking of you and I hope your services go well in the next week.
Hi Beck – yes thankfully it is. Thank you, I’m going a little nutty – but that’s pretty much the norm for me any way 😉
Service in the morning – think I’m prepared..I better be. xxx
hugs and words for you this season, come back when you are ready. ) b
Hugs and the same to you sweetheart – have a beautiful Christmas. I shall be doing my Christmas post tomorrow – when my world has calmed down a little. xxx
ood one Jenny, and your mo-jo as you say will retrn, after all you can’t keep a good woman down. Though with a rope and a lead weight you could try.
hmmm… lol my mo-jo better return..I am sure it will, just need to get through the next week. Thanks my friend.
you will get the mojo back…i wont tear down the wall for you though…sometimes those walls are what we need to go through to get to the other side and be able to carry on…though i will sit here withyou until you are ready….smiles.
you know how sweet you are now don’t you! I am glad you shall sit and wait and I know it will return…and you are right about the walls ~ smiles.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Jen. Sterling work to keep going amid all the bizz of the season and your services. Hope you get some down time. Mojo just around the next corner. We’re all looking for a little extra. Hugs.x
Thanks sweet. Yes busier than normal it seems, but my Mo-Jo will return ~ I think at this time of year everyone is a little frazzled – wishing you, your hubby, wanes and family a beautiful Christmas also. Hugs and thank you for your encouragement and support. xx
