if we can keep bitterness at bay then sweetness may remain


"The sun became dark and its darkness lasted...The fruits did not ripen, and the wine tasted like sour grapes"- Simon Winchester

Whirlwind initiation
Then dropped straight in
With orders abounding,
Opinions flying low,

Handled the sessions alone,
Organising, juggling
And insolence still.
So this day I was
greeted with arms wide open

Like I wasn't seen for years
But old rhythms soon
came back on track,
sideswipes swooping in,
Orders to go home

And I can't help but taste saltwater,
Feel a million things colliding
In the vast space under my skin
For I am not in that circle of laughter,
I am just redundant.

what a tale.. is this really you? i see you in these words, but perhaps it is fictional.. perhaps. i see so much meaning and struggling and humanity.

wonderful write.
