Clingfilm my senses, please wrap them up,
Don’t let them out, don’t let them be touched,
I can’t chance feeling, just one more emowsh,
Could tip me into phases of being exposed.
Save me from the fierce pull of this tug of war,
It leaves me with rope burns, overwhelmingly sore,
Come to think of it, my resistance makes the pain,
I need to let go, and become whole again.

As promised, here is yet another of my exclusive (published, but never before shared online) poems, from my most recent book, “Poems That Move You”.
This piece focuses on the moments where we feel most sensitive and overwhelmed, the reflex reaction to which, is usually our inclination to wrestle with our emotions, but that often only adds fuel to the fire, leading to us hurting and scarring ourselves further.
Instead it may help to loosen our grip and allow the emotions to flow more naturally. It’s okay to grieve, it’s okay to be down… life cant always be sunshine and rainbows, there are gonna be dark spells, what matters most is how we weather the storms, enduring the downpour and learning alot about ourself and others in the process.
That’s the key lesson that pain teaches us really though, isn’t it… and sometimes our suffering is drawn out, simply because we fail to grasp this simple truth.
So invest your energy in enhancing your understanding, rather than in fighting the process.
Love and Respect always,
