  1. Poignant poem. I read your profile and I feel for you. I too have PTSD along with a gamut of health issues. Thank you for liking a post on my blog. It gave me the opportunity to find yours. I hope we get to know each other and that my posts encourage you. You speak from the deepest waters of your heart.

    1. When I joined WordPress, it never occurred to that I would actually find people who know exactly what I go through. Reading your work gives me peace. And I’ll say, it makes me feel that opening a blog has been a great decision for me

  2. This was such an incredible read. Especially towards the end, where the idea of being alone didn’t (at least to me) come through as something to be pitied. But something, instead, to be celebrated.
    Thank you for this poem!

      1. Yes; I like the confluence of elements in the architecture and design of that place: the stone, wood, paved walking areas. It reminds me, actually, of a space in Be’er Sheva. Then, I like the lighting and composition of the shot — everything is in it’s “perfect” placement, as random as that is.

  3. I’ve read a number of your posts and I think your writing is astounding. You come from a different place and the simplicity is spot on. Very amazing.

  4. always alone… sometimes I keep saying to myself that I am designed to be alone and numb… This poem reminds of my best friend who isn’t now 🙂
