Lately things are so much worse at night.... uggggggggg

There is a crying
that happens at night
that does not come
while the light is with us.
There are things that cannot
be evaded
once the sun goes down.
Small nocturnal creatures
with sharp white teeth
silently gnaw at the edges of
belly and heart
when the darkness descends
and the void inside
grows larger.

It can split you open.

And the bone
in the centre of your chest
aches
like the cracked wishing bone
from the turkey breast.

And if we are strong enough
to be weak enough
we are given a wound
that never heals.
It is the gift
that keeps the heart open.

:cry:

Never really thought of a wound being a way to keep the heart open. :cry:

Then sometimes it's the mornings that seem so incredibly hard to face.

Sorry it seems the night brings the worse out for you at the moment, Rainbo.

I'm sending you a star to wish on tonight that it might make it bearable.

thanks terri! I will be on the lookout for my star :wink:

I'm looking at this star tonight,
Wishing wishes would come true.
I wonder where I stand and look
If you see the same star too.

Beautiful !

This reminds me of one of my favored scriptures.

That really was a nice poem rainboteers.
I wish I had your talent.
