Poetry 18

I bared my soul
So you might too
And now it's dust
What to do.
Build it back
Start afresh,
Let go again,
One more test.
Testing what
I hear you ask
Test my love
My faith, my heart.

Poetry 17

Trust.  Trust him, trust you, trust me.
Trust us all, unconditionally.
Dig in deep, let it show.
Take life back, have one more go.

Poetry 16

If I see you, I'll kill you,
That's how it must be.

With a knife, from behind,

Poetry 15

Simply, gently, quietly now.
There's movement afoot.
Soften that brow.
Be calm, be patient, just you see,
Your moment is coming,
Wait, let it be.

Poetry 14

Sitting in a cafe as the world rushes by, holding a moment, a feeling.
I try to keep still, to contain, the sadness, the joy, a yearning to dance, to implode, to destroy.
I cannot move, for fear, for remorse, of what will become if I open the doors.
There's more to me than meets the eye, yet I dare not aim to reach the sky.
There's a need to be free, to seek for more, to connect within, to get to pour
Myself into this life, to take what's mine, to shine my light.
I shall not die before I've lived. I know it now, it is my right.

- Louise

Poetry 13

There's a moment in time
That I catch to a beat
When my soul takes a dive
And falls into my feet.
The rhythm takes over
My body, my mind.
Taking me elsewhere
A space undefined.
Unable to stop
It makes me complete
Want to dance till I drop
Sated, replete.

- Louise

Poetry 12

Can you see what is missing if I hold it to the light.
Can you tell that there's something not quite right.
Do you feel cold drafts sweeping through your home.
Do you know that you're sitting in your comfort zone.

Can you see how the cracks are beginning to show.
Can you tell that the children are wanting to know.
Do you feel any warmth living in this joint.
Do you know that she's reaching breaking point.

Can you see now the signs that something was wrong.
Can you tell that two people were in pain for so long.
Do you feel any better, now you're with someone new.
Do you know that to heal, it must start with you.
