There’s no clamouring in my head, I want to hike and tend the garden and exhausted, settling in my bed breathe a breath of peace and freedom. In a world where neighbours care enough not to interfere when your family is protected but not by those who’s tool is fear. In a child’s … Continue reading Love Behold
The pump is primed It's been some time Fertile and frantic Earth Fertile to give and frantic to live Every breath betrays The stillness of mist on mountains Even the animals Especially the animals Fight to survive Must fight to survive.

It's funny. If it wasn't, the terrible sadness would consume my heart. I suppose the fear will subside like the tide, like always and a new shore will take shape with solid and dry places to support weight. The real terror is in the vehemence, The wild, pinwheeling eyes rolling back, like a shark before … Continue reading About Me
My heart is full of hope in the most tragic of times When all around is anger and violence. I know these old opponents, But I don't honor them now.

I never saw it coming. I turned cold and sick. The avalanche, rumbling death, growing. The rumbling, growing death. When the earth shakes, there is nowhere to hide and nothing is safe.

Death had never been an option. The horrors in my mind had never been an option. I had never known the horrors … Continue reading Panic Attack-The Betrayer
