Confessions good for the Soul..so they say…

Sat today knowing its your day. But without the projector of memories I dont see you. I hear you I feel you but just cant see you…

Our friendship was not always plain sailing but I still feel your love like a radiator on a bitter day. True friendship like yours is so missed, Even at my worst when pushing all away as I did you were and are always there no matter what, If im Honest my head didnt always allow me to reslise this at the time.

as I have got older and with the vGrowthalue of hind sight dear friend there is none like you sis,I will always carry you in my heart knowing you come with me but I really do wish Id shown more respect and love whilst you were here. Only you and selected few know me truly. Taught me wisely and above all taught me to take me for me.

Im aware I Havent mentioned a name but that don’t matter cuz I’ll love you forever.. Big hugs babe miss you so much Happy Birthday xxx

Just over 12 months ago something Happened that has Changed lives of those around me – Myself too..

I know we all have felt it…

I Lost my sister From my chosen family not my biological family but my family who more so  understand me maybe on levels some never will.. Today I write with a heavy heart I miss you, 

Manfa is my friend my confidant my ice cream eating till brain freeze and then some in fact this is why she is my sister because friend just doesnt do justice,

I know you live on in us but 12 months without seeing you just doesn’t seem possible you had a smile that could light the darkest cave. You laugh so infectious and loud sure to take away every cloud.

Always in my heart I know you will watch as I go. But this pain in my heart will not go..

Talk to you as I do during my day I sit here and just want to say I love you and miss you and ill never forget the times we shared.

Morning 090415

This morning i sit and put fingers to keyboard not knowing were Im going or my point for this post. Sat here..Waiting…Cars zooming down the road one follows one follows another. Sitting on the edge of my bed with the remaining yet familier pain of hyper tight muscles pulling for all there worth leaving me feeling like I have little worth as I take the Pain killers perscribed knowing the pain is still there. feeling it still there. the world continues to go round and round with evidence of vison and sound.

Sat with the shakes my fingers chattering on the keys as the pain goes behind the knees all I want is to please those around and about me maybe bring some peace,a smile a laugh all desined for wilst on this path but with all this it must be said the indicator is pointing red so I go back to sleep 

well….

The ink had stoped fallled by myself.. At posting daily. somthing stopped me dead in my tracks it is i assume not visbal to the naked eye as I write Iknow this might seem odd even to me.

Glad Im not alone

Up till a few days back I was posting every day with the Start of positive post and things like picture challenges and favorite recipe keeping me busy but ultimately the poetry and stories had dried up and to be honest I was starting to feel I had let myself down, Self doubt number one of life Little curve balls that comes out. Taunting my brain because I hadn’t posted anything really personal for a bit. Dont get me wrong I still was avidly reading thanks to amazon kindle app on my phone and the reader on word press but on the whole my productivity and input level had taken a break and I found myself playing Facebook games then giving myself a hard time for not being on here as much.

last night and tonight have been somewhat almost like a treasure map knowing showing me the way. As I sit here poised for another week I know that whatever happens I’m not alone
