Cave Dwelling.....

Image: Picasso - Blue Nude


I am carving a space
Just for me
I lay here in it
the darkness is welcoming
the candle glows softly in the corner
my pieces are strewn
staying where I put them
no one moves them around
loses them carelessly
before I hide them again
I examine closely
pick apart
sew a thread here and there
unpick a wrong stitch
colour a missed spot
touch this soft piece
at my centre
I ponder
the meaning of you

why
why do I even need?
I reflect on lessons taught well
learned slowly
wisdom gained only if used
I know differently
yet still I yearn for you
it is my nature
to be twined
I am not a solitary creature
this much I know of me

Forgive me if I pause
before I lay my heart out

I have less time to waste now

You know what ... you are right ... a change is as good as a rest ... I'm hoping the new treatment will be easier on me.
