I Will Always Hold You In My Heart

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 28, 2014

Trying...

To teach myself to think of you

Without so much emotion

Without longing to look

Into your sweet eyes

Which showed me your soul

A soul connected to my own...

When will the pain stop?

How do I let it be at peace?

I told you long ago

I did not want to live in a world

Without you

Now you are gone

My souls still cries for you...

I am here

You are there

In a better place

So they say

I am selfish

I want you here with me

My heart not able

To let... (more)

Goodbye

By Rahul, published on Jan 1, 2014

Goodbyes are always hard -

but this time I’m prepared.

Knew’d never get to say bye -

the way it is mend to be.

But this time I’m prepared -

to cherish each moment -

spent with you, for I knew -

it was time to say bye.

But this time I’m prepared -

to walk with you,

just like you once did,

guiding my tiny steps.

But this time I’m prepared -

to show how much I care.

And to thank you for -

all that I have become.

Angel

By JennyT, published on Sep 13, 2013

draped the angel sleeps the cold of stone not felt beneath surround her not with pity she no longer feels her pain blind to acts of cruelty deaf to words of hate

as on earth an angel once again

do not weep your tears though your heart may break as you stand before her rest a marigold where she lays remember not her sorrow her soul now free to touch

the face of the stars

brush the dirt away from her so she maybe cleansed from those that caused her death sit and talk with her a while and you will hear her plea

I sleep, I ask ~ no tears be shed... (more)

Home

By Rahul, published on Sep 13, 2013

...and so I reached the land of the Delmon civilization a year back. Hot and humid days in this sandy land make me wish often that I shouldn't have left home. How can a mild hearted tropical creature like me from the wet green lands of Kerala survive in this dusty island of palm trees. It is the memories at home that fuel me to withstand the blazing sun above and the boiling sand underneath.

Radiating calmness both in body and soul like an elderly abbot the vast sea surrounds me here, calm Sea and bright mornings were not something that I was used to. I was born in a village covered... (more)

Coming through the other end when told your life is gone

By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 30, 2013

...

So as the years came and went I had to stop playing football, I cried hard as football was my life, I then decided to go into football management, it was 10 hours a week at the most and it was sore, but manageable. I loved it, 15 years and 19 trophies but more important we created memories for players, kids, adults, parents, real memories, times when we all cried. I demanded the best from everyone, even my staff, they all knew I wanted to act as if we were a pro outfit and we did, the teams I managed had hats and gloves with the team badge on it, their name on their tops and... (more)

Life Over 50

By JennyT, published on Aug 29, 2013

how does it change us?

what makes us different if anything?

we see the same things ....... though probably now through squinted eyes or glasses

we hear the same things ... though you may have to speak up a little or slower

we smell the same things .... our nostrils haven't let us down yet

do we feel the same?

hmmm no... our brains think we do, our bodies are less inclined

it's our prerogative to have achy knees, hands, feet or legs, we have used them for a long time

to say what we want to though it may offend, our right to speak our mind

Age

By JennyT, published on Aug 29, 2013

...too high energy zapped end of the day (do I have to cook) tablets - herbs- vitamins body rattles walking pharmacy

one could ask (no I do ask) how much to they alleviate placebos of the mind thinking of ahead walking sticks (possibly frames) be gone with you

for ageing brings memories smack bang - the hippocampus of daisy chains Hendrix - Joplin laughter sitting cross legged gunji - beer

music deafening rattling walls - parents banging loud on doors escaping through the flywire screens - just a sleep over at my friends…

riding bareback flirting with the boys ... (more)

A Prayer For All The Innocent Suffering

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 8, 2013

...drenching

You in abundant love...

I humbly offer you my heart

Use it as you see fit

Hold on to it when

Life shatters your essence

I see beyond the surreptitious smile

Let me look inside your soul...

I cherish so many memories of sharing in such profound pain....What do you say to a woman who has found Hell on earth? Does anyone else see the deadness in her eyes? When I am blessed with having those in need come into my path, my first thought is always a prayer...A prayer to be given strength, direction, and the ... (more)

Feeling Good

By Rahul, published on Jun 16, 2013

Past events reel before me, often placing a smile on my face. Time and again some memories surface from the cranial depths and become the part of my present, creating an even more wonderful and cherishing new memory. Living life to me is like seeing a good movie in an old cine theater, laughing, crying and letting all my emotions fly into the hall's quarter darkness, unintentionally memorizing the best scenes and dialogues and now and then looking back at the projector room with curiosity, wondering "How the hell does that thing works". It feels good when I can see life through this window... (more)

Once Upon A Time

By Scorpion Sting, published on May 28, 2013

.............. in a not too distant past I had a life of which I haven't shared ever before. Of course, there are people who know bits and pieces of this story but I'm the only person alive who knows the actual story as it actually happened. Some may call this story a confession of sorts, some may shake their heads in disbelief, but in the end maybe you can realize that there was a time in my life when these were considered the best days in my life. Be sure to follow close as there are a few twists and turns that if you aren't paying attention you just might get lost. So, are we ready? If so,... (more)
