When you lose someone to suicide, life changes forever…. Yet somehow, Soni’s death continues to bring me alive… She somehow invites me to truly LIVE each day as the precious gift it is….
Truly LIVING is a gift i never expected to unravel out of grief…
It’s been a long time since you visited my dreams…. thank you for coming you luscious creature, this was my favourite visit yet xo
p.s. Poems are songs that whisper from the stars… so grateful this one fell from heaven xo
your joy was alive
Swirling it’s way through my heartbeat
Weaving life into my veins.
My footprints sparkled with starlight
Singing praises to the darkness and all its gifts exposed.
the mess that joined us,
Joy Dripping from our lips,
The weight of a thousand stars burned all that was heavy and dead
And we were together again.
Life lived through us
Play was the name of the game
your reckless laughter
igniting my own
And Bending my bones
My ears tuned in to the divinity I’d forgotten.
Ive missed you my friend
Your shade is my ice cream on a summer’s day
How did you know I’ve been
that was light and alive and no longer afraid of happiness.
Time had not touched you,
The weariness I imagined was not a cloak you owned.
no weight in your bones.
I’d forgotten how to dance like that.
Just oceans singing through our veins.
I needed your visit.
I’d packed away that feeling,
The taste of fun,
But it looks good on my lips
So I won’t be carrying around this dead coat
or wearing it any longer.
I lost it last night when you woke me from my slumber
And I won’t be searching for the darkness….
