the world was shut

for life

 

no light

no sounds

no feels

found

at the bottom of

the abysses

 

gone deeper

the bottomless trench

ruthlessly cracked open

 

there

my sunken body

no senses discerned

no shelter for existence

 

dwelling and

crawling about

at the far end

flattened

 

but i elected to be there

to find my soul

again

 

                                                                        ***

 

bubbles

countless froths

belched out of the channel

shining

 

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.
