I found this and turns out it was one of the first posts I made here back in November 2015, but I think I had written it around 2006 or so. A bit bleak, but hey ho. Anyway, I hope you are all doing well, and staying safe! Take care.

It’s been such a long time; it could be ten thousand years. Time passes much faster when you cry all your tears. Last time I looked back, I could only see my feet. I never saw the sky, I missed a treat, and I miss my old life. I can only look back and cry. I miss my future, but it is too late, I say. And, I cry for the passing of time, all of the day.

‘There are blue skies and a cold yearning face. Catching the breeze with eyes closed in embrace. Swirled on tip toes, hearts lift in the air; wind cool on the fingertips is chilled in the stare. Longing and heartache kept warm all the while, and never a dry eye let down by goodbye. She holds it all in still after many have cared, but don’t tell her you’re leaving, don’t stroke her there.’

I take off my robe in ankles held deep. My hands fill the water with each step of my feet. The waves fully clothe me until I’m replete. I disappear from view to drown in this pain; and I miss my future, fresh and anew, but, I can see the stars now, over and over and over again.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

      2. Thank you very much. I hope my input/comment went through since I am not here too often. I will continue to check in though. I have not written in rhyme for many, many years and I see your work is a huge component of that – it is not always that easy – tell that to the nay sayers. Lol. take care, my friend.

Yes, I like to write rhymes as I personally feel it helps me improve my flow of the poem. Appreciate your kind compliment Anita, take care dear friend. 🙂

  2. Hey Anita, hope you are doing well. I read your about section & I genuinely feel that you are great writer & an even better human being. Just wondering if you have an Instagram page for your writings? I’d love to follow you there in order to access your writings in case i’m not all that active on WordPress.

    1. Hi, Thank you for those thoughts. I joined Instagram only to follow conservationist and other animal lovers (another passion is conservation, which I have a section for on my blog). I have briefly thought about posting my work there or my fundraising craft work there, but as yet, time has not been generous. I am also not one to shove my stuff out there for the most part. I am considering it though. Thank you again for you encouragement!
