Pretending is the first step in conquering anything.
love the stretch and bend imagery.
pretendingthe dark had no claimon your lonely clumsy soulAnd perhaps bravery will follow the pretense? :)
I tend to feel we all have clumsy souls. I do. I am always trying to make sense of things in life. I never quite do. There is so much mystery in ourselves and even those we know best.Lovely poem.
They say 'lighting is everything' for a good reason ... nice Mag!
swear i commented on this one the other day....the darkness is there for us all...as much as we deny it...smiles.
It lurks about all around, but to each the light must be found. Wonderful verse.
We could all use a guiding light. Help fathom life's dark times.
Fascinating opening line...wow...love it...
This one really grabs me, Rene. The image of the "lonely clumsy soul" is so poignant. Good one, kiddo!
