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...

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...

Red

supple

edgy swirls 

cutting into my deep

churning the inside of 

the buried being

Bruises of an endless quest

sores of everlasting yearnings

scars of unanswered questions

wounds of agonizing persistence

Teardrops

blood red like the anguish

of the soul

Confusion

poison of the God...
