STRESSED (For Bokkie…with all of my love)

You feel it

the invisible


the emptiness


the heavy


that feels like


is invading you

upbraiding you

pulling your



and spitting it



on the inside

driving your spine

through to the outside

taking your breath

cold as death

dark hand gripping



there’s nothing


but you


and bleeding


soul needing

    Where do you find your pictures???

    This sounds like more than stress to me. I think stress is just the cover, that there is something else behind it. Something that is pulling… that invisible thing that I know as well.

    thank you!!

  11. divine………..

    To explain love by example of coin , like coin has head , tail and thin edge , Desire is like coin head , hate is like coin tail , thin edge is love , where no desire , no hate .

    Love is your inner wealth, seed of which you bring in your closed hands to plant in this world to make it a tree of happiness.

    seasons come…seasons go….leaves come………leaves go…stress comes…stress goes……….emptiness comes………emptiness goes…….

    still………..tree grows…..

    love all……….
