One of these days

One of these days

Her soulmate waits for “high school days”
and juggles his mind’s song
while she tends her heart’s fire
with standard oil
until that blessed moment
when he pitches forwards
(and clicks)
hors de fosse
into this void

(One of these days)

The written word is such a good therapy for the soul. It is only after being sick for awhile and after my divorce that I started to write again. The web has so much to offer and sites like WordPress is our gateway to sharing our work no matter how novice one is. Thank you for your support too!

Thank you so much, Elsbeth. That was my concern when writing this: Would anyone understand what I meant? And I am encouraged by your response. By the way, the blog linked to your Gravatar hasn’t been updated in about a year. Is there a different one I should be looking at? Thank you again for your warm response.

[…] One of these days by Sabiscuit – A beautiful poem by my friend Sabiscuit – as usual she has a wonderful way of expressing thoughts, a way I never would think of, and a way that always makes me smile. But what I really love about this creation is how she includes her actual handwritten version of the poem, as in ink on paper. She has an illustration and highlights some phrases as well. I have always loved handwriting, perhaps because I always wished mine were just a little bit more like the way I envisioned it should be. The physical lines, varying widths, decisions about spacing of the letters, how many words go on a line, how to indent each line, whether to drop some letters down below the line or not – all these things are small representations and reflections of the author. And I’m not speaking in terms of psycho-analysis, to somehow determine that a person takes wild risks or resents their mother based on how you write your lowercase “i”‘s. It’s simply another connection point with the author – like when you see Beethoven’s handwritten original compositions with his annotations, or when I read the flight log of my grandfather from the 1940’s when he was training in the Navy. I love that Sabiscuit shared this part of herself along with her – or, more correctly, as part of – her composition. It challenges me to see how I could do something similar. […]

Unless a greedy girl grabs him first. Then my moat had better be filled with my favourite curry, as I might need to eat my blues away. x

Well, the moat should keep them out. Don’t forget the secret tunnel to the bit in the middle. I cannot stress enough how important that is, especially if you fill your moat with man eating sharks..

This is wonderful, and I love how you have written and drawn it on paper. It makes the poem come to life even more, to see a physical representation of what you created.

I hope you’re feeling better after taking that walk. Triggers are rough. After bawling for two whole days a few weeks ago, I feel for anyone who has to go through that. (Hugs) x

Please let her know. I sometimes remove things after they’ve made the impact I wanted but Ems is a lovely person and I’m sure she felt she didn’t want to cause you any pain on purpose. No one does. If you see a trigger in anything I post, please tell me, okay?

I hope I didn’t make her feel bad in any way. I know she couldn’t have possibly predicted that. Hell I didn’t see it coming either. It was a great article. I hope she reposts it. I got more out that than in 3months of therapy….and I loved my therapist.

Your feelings are real to you and I’m glad you felt comfortable expressing them openly. I think the way you did it was insightful. If you were helped by her, even if the first rush of it was a bit overwhelming, it’s all good as you’re a newer version of you, right now.
