  1. Hi Lira,
    I also write poetry, but generally do not share widely. I did mention in my last message to you that some of the difficulties in my life were still lurking in the background. One has recently passed on, inspiring me to write this. I thought you might like it:

    Eulogy for a Stranger

    Between your roars and your silence,
    I stood, at once, cringing and reaching
    Until the day I turned and walked away.

    Although part of my distant past
    I still carry with me your legacy –
    The scars of your remoteness, your anger, your accusations.
    Tempered with the passage of time.
    They will remain until my heart, too, beats no more.

    I breathe deeply, drawing in the air of a new moment;
    Feeling a sense of comfort and peace.
    As I lay you to rest in my mind.

    1. Hi Kathy.

      That’s really beautiful, especially the two last lines that close the poem. Thank you for sharing it with me.

      I’m sorry to know some of the difficulties in your life are still on going. I hope they improve soon. I know I’m pretty much just a stranger on the Internet, but I’m here to chat if you want someone to talk to.

      Sending you a hug and hoping you have a good day x


  2. Thank you for being so sweet. My difficulties are something you, I believe, have had issues with as well – namely family relationships. My upbringing wasn’t fun either. The poem provides a glimpse into what I did about that. I realized long ago that the offenders were not a good support for me and I decided to move on with my life without them. I worked on changing myself, which has, I believe, produced reasonably positive results. Doing so has required a lot of hard work, but it’s been worth it. My life is so much more peaceful now – and that’s a good thing, because I’m no spring chicken any more. :)
    Hugs to you too. Take care.

    1. The same happened to me. I had to move on with my life and let go of some people, but it was definitely something necessary. It was pretty hard back then, but nowadays I feel a lot better.
      That’s great news. :) I hope it keeps important even more next year.
      I hope we talk again soon. Take care you too, Kathy!
