I fell into a deep depression alone… alone I fell into a depression that opened into the home of my soul. My soul was lost; and I dropped alone, alone My soul was lost, for I'd lost god, my vast home. I could not believe in goodness, no; for goodness had left me; it'd left my smalled soul. I could not believe in goodness, no; for goodness had left me, and faith, that old home. I lay sleepless, quaking in fear fear'd replaced love, and lurked ever near. I lay sleepless, quaking in fear fear had replaced hope... of any kind listening ear. But I saw you like an upwards anchor a mountain of strength, quiet and dear and through my hopelessness my body reached its voice and clung to your muscle which was spiritual, and clear. You say you are not a person of god; you say you are agnostic; but I know in that moment you embodied the One and All that saved me from the caustic.
Dedicated to my husband. Like most of us, he’s not perfect, but he is very, very good.
Tell one person, even just one person, to lighten the burden; sometimes that’s all it takes to keep climbing.
Stay awesome, dear friends. Thanks also to you, for being the kind listening ears. Without you, these posts quite likely would not exist. :)) 💛🙏 Love, xoxo “Lia”
