Journeying in a linear line
her life was wholesome and carefree
unhampered by the hard edges of living
embraced with passionate gusto.

Before her plane intersected with that of other people
she was just another pebble on the beach;
shorn of rhetoric, steeped in reality
skipping under the shady trees.

She could not run parallel with expectations
the geometry of life required fresh perspective
armed with nothing but her skills
she tried to hush the rising panic.

Feeling boxed and suffocated by toxic relationships
(beguiled though she was by them once)
she realised, ever changing dimensions of existing
needed to be tackled with enhanced tools every day.

  2. This was fascinating to read…I can’t even describe the feeling it gave me, other than what I tell you all the time: superior writing, superior intellect, superior measure of compassion and creativity…is that enough?:)

    1. No…please don’t stop! Keep the compliments coming!!
      If only you could see me, Z, I am blushing reading your wonderful words. I don’t think I am worthy but I accept your praise with humility. 🙏🏼❤️
      You are so very good for my heart and soul. 💝💝


      1. I think I’m addicted to your writing! As well as our fun faraway friendship!! I can’t imagine Not serving up compliments to you–and I DO wish I could see you blushing, haha!! What means the most is that you say I’m very good for your heart and soul–that’s the kind of legacy I wish to leave with everyone…especially people I may never meet in person.💖🌹💖

      2. You will leave behind a wonderful legacy but that time is still quite far off!
        It is always very heartwarming and encouraging to receive love. So what if we haven’t met and may not meet in future! Our hearts have met here and that is more than enough. ❤️
        So thank you once again for being YOU. 💖💖
