Another impromptu posting . I originally started this blog back in November because I have written forever and I wanted to write again, I needed to write again , not for anyone else but just to clear my head of its thoughts. I don’t have an ego although I write poetry …go figure ,What i mean is I dont write for popularity etc etc , Take me or leave me . I don’t profess to be any good, my poems are straight from the heart from me , ,all bio or semi biographical so maybe the ego does come through , but i like/hope to think they are a release more than anything.. I’m honoured people like, that’s a plus ,so thank you x
In 2009 I stop writing , for two reasons my mother was seriously ill and I took 15 months of work to nurse her, she pulled through, proving she is the strongest woman I know alive or dead and two I finally began grieving my father for the for time since in his death in 2004, it took me 5 years to get to that point.
Earlier posts have described our relationship from me being a child to me an adult , when died. I’m glad we found peace with each other and that we had at least 15 good years to rebuild our relationship, I loved him so much and miss even , more now . I forgave him for my childhood , because he couldn’t forgive himself. Anyway I also started a new relationship in 2009 with a nurse who looked after my mother , she’s the muse in most of my poems and my soul mate .
Anyway we split in Feb for stupid personal reasons,not my choice, she moved out of my house and I started writing again to keep a) Sane and b) to keep busy . Unbeknows to me the girlfriend had been reading and realised how I felt ,and as result were back together , we’ve gone back to basics to discover why we fell in love with each other again. (No doubt future poems) So the moral of the story Words will always win.
Anyway the link is Andrea Gibson , who I bow to, I could listen to her forever , anyway I love her poetry , so heres just one of them, which is appropriate for discovering a new lover …..enjoy.
