    I have you both to thank
    one or both
    for the line white
    raised and silent
    one for the memory
    of a woman with
    tired eyes and
    a toy in her hand
    one for
    both for
    the friendship
    whose back
    I, we
    and whose pieces
    I am still picking up
    even now
    which perhaps I may never
    be able to glue
    back together.
    I have you to thank
    I think
    for the tattoo
    running down my spine
    for the
    words running through my
    I call you out
    for the liquid I spilt
    iron thick
    across my hands
    and down my cheeks.
    I call you out and say
    I miss you
    don’t want to live without you
    can seem to feel
    the power you gave me
    a children’s book reminds me
    of the feeling that you
    Felix Felicis
    a child’s novel
    but the feeling the same
    as if I could conquer the world
    and my wayward self
    no longer in need of conquering
    was strong and capable
    I could move mountains
    not literally of course
    if I wanted to
    if I needed to.
    meet depression
    meet obsession.
    Say goodnight
    and say hello to
    I’m sorry
    and goodbye to the already gone.
    The mountain stands
    as it always did
    solid rock
    and too heavy too move
    and me too tired to climb it.

    :eek:hmy: What a mind, what a heart you must have to write such masterpieces!:eek:hmy: I am in awe of your talent:smile: and in empathy for your sorrowful regretful feelings.:sad:

    love and hugs,

    This is a brillaint piece of work, because of it's uninhibited expression of intimate feelings, and of course the specific wording. Strangely I know how you feel, not exactly of course, but similiar.
