Am I anything


Must I die so I am noticed
my voice inaudible, falling
silent on bustling streets
between steps and open mouths

those that live cast shadows
on walls at close of day
bricks of sunburnt orange
their mortar doesn’t crumble

longing to be heard, for
recognition in your world
for I am weak without

I drift, staring back
at those who cast a rose into
darkness, now I haunt your
dreams, for you to realise
I existed

Fiction – Not related to me having a small break, I shall be busy again for a few days, working on assessments, but had to write.

Can I  just say thank you to all of you for leaving  such lovely comments on my Muse on Vacation post. That was three days ago, seems like 3 weeks. Appreciate your kindness  and caring.

  1. It’s sad that many do perish without so much as a single tear shed. I think if you were not there many would miss your writings. 🙂

    • That is such a beautiful comment to make Jackie and I thank you, yes and even more sad when they feel they cannot be ‘anybody’ without having someone else. Appreciate you reading.

    • Have to pop in to say thank you, as I was remiss on my last post in answering. Having to take pop for an ultrasound now, he thinks he may have kidney stones again 😦 no study today, no writing, weekend. Coming up, hopefully I can write tonight. Thank you for your lovely comment and support as always Beth. xx

  2. This is another wonderful example of your talent, Jen!

    I’ve been offline for a few days making videos (very time-consuming work!) 😦

    Thank you for responding to my email – so glad everything is fine 😉

    • Taken you say? 🙂 thank you honey. Videos you say? I loved your trailers so I’m tippin’ whatever you do will be wonderful. You are welcome, thank you for emailing and caring, I plod along. Hugs x

    • The study is progressing. I have submitted 10 out of the 27 required and have till October to finish the course. I have received a competent mark for all so far. Though the trainer on line has been excellent and nudged me where required too.
      Yes receiving recognition, in that our words have meant something to others is the best gift a writer can receive. Thanks Bri.
