As I breathe, I see, As I see, I breathe, As I talk, I listen, As I listen, I talk. As I watch, I understand, As I understand, I watch. As I feel, I grow, As I grow, I feel. As I change , I let go, As I let go, I change. RA CopyrightContinue reading “As I breathe”
Blood is thicker than water, The words of an abandoned daughter. You will fight for each other, You will protect each other, You are blood. Never take one another for granted, Never let love make you enchanted. Fight for each other, Protect each other, You are blood. Watch over sister and brother, You will notContinue reading “You are blood”
All is quiet now, the storm within your head is over. The white squall of words and lies, calmed beneath the morning sun. Driven out is the darkness of that night, a new bounteous day is born on the horizon. Future worries no, again Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

I felt like I was drowning a little and just decided to tread water until things in my ocean calmed a little.
1. Tentatively he moved forward, Holding his head high, he bowed to the creator. In that deep moment, a stillness washed over him, he was no longer calm. His focus had changed, and he sought to reap what he had sowed years ago. He called to the four winds to carry him to the eternalContinue reading “Four winds”
(From my early self) Crows fall silent, His footsteps pass by. The air is chilly, he clings to his coat. Pivoting eyes, watching subtle movements, searching for prey. Mist descends, cloaked in darkness as laughter carries on the air. Quick to stir, a phone drops to the pavement, with her body. Copyright © 2020 GourmetContinue reading “She”
The End Remember it all. Nowhere to go, no one to call, The fear on people’s faces, ‘to the showers’ they were told. The odor lingering, The smell of burning flesh, Sweeps past gaunt, solemn faces, Staring at empty spaces. Stripped of clothes and dignity, Hearts thumping, fear amounts, Out of line, a young boyContinue reading “Poems from my earlier self (at the tender age of 13 years)”
Their mistakes and shame burn my flesh.
Feeling so alone, naked even.
I tortured my soul with questions and doubt, I racked my brain for answers. Crying myself to sleep, Forgetting to eat. Tearing myself apart, The answer so simple. You whispered, tears in your voice, “Baby, listen to your heart” RA Copyright © 2020 Gourmet for the Soul – All rights reserved
My soul has been drowned by emotions, They ebb, flow, then cascade. Sometimes in the still, they are still too. Shaded by the branches of everyday tasks, so mundane they seem needless. I cannot understand…….. when the fear comes, It crashes over me and I panic, It crushes my spirit, It captures my soul, andContinue reading “The Fear”
You entered my home, With the assumption you were allowed. You explored wherever you liked, Lingering too long in the kitchen. I watched you intently, You moved lazily towards the window. A mist descended upon you, I hope your time was fruitful, Little fruit fly. RA Copyright © 2020 Gourmet for the Soul – AllContinue reading “Fruit fly”

RA The night fell silent. A creeping mist engulfed the paddocks around the house. Anya sat huddled on her cast iron bed, the bars surrounding her like a prison, she was its captive. She knew it wasn’t the bars that kept her prisoner here, but her unwavering love for him. It chained her down andContinue reading “The Beginning 1”
Winter is no friend RA The sun has risen and fallen, The day has come to an End. The trees are bare and Broken, Winter is no Friend. It Smothers one in a snowdrift, Locked behind a cabin door, Feeling this could be Forever, Merely a year or more. It curls one up by aContinue reading “Winter is no Friend”
In the cold, I waited for you. An impatient parent, guarding my place in the queue of life. I waited for the glimmer, as you emerge from the darkness and are born again at my stop. RA Copyright © 2020 Gourmet for the Soul – All rights reserved
RA Among all the voices, I hear but one, inside my head, resounding like a bell. The line of street lamps glow like fairy lights, the air is filled with the music of thought. Tears, as the heart’s rhythm races with the music, Moonlight tinkling reality’s piano. In my mind lovers dance, he held her,Continue reading “Adagio for Lovers”
RA Looking down I realise how far away I am, how disconnected I am, how unconnected I am. Even when I speak in a language I understand, I need an interpreter to tell them what I mean. I roar and shout inside, my mouth utters no sound, I’m deaf and dumb, though I speak. SometimesContinue reading “Languages”
