the world was shut

for life


no light

no sounds

no feels


at the bottom of

the abysses


gone deeper

the bottomless trench

ruthlessly cracked open



my sunken body

no senses discerned

no shelter for existence


dwelling and

crawling about

at the far end



but i elected to be there

to find my soul






countless froths

belched out of the channel



reflecting light

guiding me through

the darkness

like stars

i was taken

to the hands of

the buoyant force

the source of light

who I am

Amongst the many hardships that I experienced, my late husband, Patrick’s illness for three years, and his subsequent passing were some of the most devastating experiences. For your interest, please kindly visit a few of my articles around Patrick and me.
