When fear turns into hope,

doors which seemed closed shut, begin to open,

blinded by the gleaming light of a brand new silver lining.

Exposing this tiny silver contour in the distance

which seemingly forever had been covered

by grim desperation and unbearable anguish,

Hair, hair long curly hair

hurry and grow, it's still short, it is not fair

I long for it with waves and long

and not in all directions and short but strong

Hair, hair long curly hair

hurry and grow, I can't stop to stare

I dream to get my former length back

over the shoulder...

2018 was a year to blow my mind
with unexpected news, the nasty kind

When at the mirror, I felt it, soft and round
I stood in shock and made no sound

Was it, what I so deeply feared
I asked my image, all sadly teared

A quick call to my doctor, I so do trust
she would know...

Mapped out ideas subsiding

crumbling like sand through your trembling fingers

Drawn up Visions blurring

like settling dust on your eyes

Hoped for horizons dissolving

into mist of a colourless void

Familiar sounds fading

into overwhelming stillness

Nothing

Void

A grasp...

It never gets easier.

It hurts, every time.

No matter how many cats I had to let go, no matter the circumstances.

Loosing a family member always hurts.

And they all, every single one have a special place in our home and hearts.

Forever.

The most recent cat we had to le...

The strained face caressed by the soft air

Craving

Longing

Yearning 

for a place she has never been

where her feet never touched the ground

An invisible string

pulling 

dragging

leading her

to a place unknown

still nameless

but yet so close to her soul

The essence of home,

enticing...

Belonging...

empty

silent

voices calling

with a salty taste

Sharp edges of freeze 

stinging

deep into your Being

No response

echo fading into the distance

empty space

sense of weirdness

Into a world of

blankness

void

Longing,

aching purple

drawing its teeth 

deep into your skin

Stranger

... the sweet word of forgiveness

the sweet word of a warm embrace

the sweet word of a twinkle

the sweet word of the sound of laughter

the sweet word of a deep safety net

... the sweet word of Home

assurance

roots

love

Home 

... the bittersweet word or resentment

the bittersweet...

... When tears express what words can’t say

and the soul becomes saturated

with unspoken ache burning deep,

abiding void...

Subsiding emotions

because you have made yourself home

in the anguish of an existence in invisible chains

leaving behind a shell,

hollow and empt...

... visions transform into heartbeats

dreams into warm showers of contentment

fantasies into a sea of colours and

illusions into longings beyond bearing.

Then dreams are growing wings and

the clear sky becomes tainted

with the insistent shades of a yearning soul,
