Let me reach
My veins exposed
You pick at my soul
Don’t stop my hand
Let it go
I grasp with
Fingers curled

I am raw
Love does that
Senses heightened
The ones we love

Let me reach
I’m here for you
You’re not alone
You never were
Let me in
Blunt the thorn
That tears my heart

It is hard to write, this is the first thing in 8 days, I’m hoping to return.

  1. I feel,like you should have written #1 ~ smiles
    Yes it is Bri, things haven’t changed, we are on a merry-go-round
    Thank you I changed them last minute, appreciate you reading & caring.

    • Thank you darling, it takes a great deal for me to try and put something down on paper these days, before I didn’t really have to concentrate,… now.. Thank you for being here, supporting, love you ❤ x

  2. That you are finding words at all, Jen, especially such as these, so expressive of this time, I’m so very glad to see. They may not give you more than momentary release but sometimes getting those strongest of feelings onto paper is enough to keep going, one floodgate at a time. My thoughts are with you and your family.x

  3. Beautifully conveyed! Sorry to hear you are having struggles with finding the words 🙂

    I need to read through some more and catch up to get informed. I’ll leave you with this:

  4. This is beautifully crafted, so raw. To be the unconditional love that can accept pain for another, a rare and wonderful gift that you give….

  5. Exquisite talent in expressing this in words, Jen! Your pain that creates tears like that thorn, is so vivid in your description, my dear! You are in each of our hearts, while we are worrying and caring for you. If only we could make it disappear, we would do this! I’d like to give that young woman a ‘talking to!’ xo, Robin

    • I wish a ‘talking to’ would accomplish anything, but with her condition, sadly it won’t. She and I and those who know her, need skills to get through the roller coaster of emotions that she experiences. Thank you so much, I know it’s difficult for others to understand, hopefully through my words, I am able to bring even the smallest detail of her life, my life right now. Hugs xx
