Lessons of Love


Rose  HeartLike warm cotton, our hearts basked in the glory of sunshine. But suddenly darkness struck, and our lives were on the line. There was no time to cover our cloth, the rain caught on as fast at the storm. And to dry again, and feel as good on our skin is difficult for the cloth – now wet and tattered. Putting together the pieces and wringing out the water is a task too daunting, daring and haunting. But from a far, the horizon is promising to open up memories. We must remember how it felt to be happy. We must remember how it felt to love. We must remember what it means to find closure. We must remember the good time; that brought us here. That little light opening in the dark skies is the reason why, our once prestigious cloth, now torn – can be mended. We are hurt. We are confused. We are clueless. We are in great loss. But what’s greater is our collective strength and art. That can help remake our cloth a new.

BONUS: A tribute to everyone we lost at the Westgate Mall Terrorist Attack (Kenya) and those who were left hurt, physically and emotionally.

  1. Hi,

    I really like your poetry.

    I am putting together a collection of poems from both women and men about Love, relationships and dating. The book is called 7 Shades of Love. I would love to include some of your poetry.

    This poetry book is designed to compliment my self-help book Mr Wrong, “a humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually Mr Wrong and how to set out onto a positive path to Mr Right.” It is a selection of stories written by women about their relationship experiences and how they overcame the trials and tribulations of these unhealthy/unhappy relationships. It also has stories written by men and stories that celebrate happy and loving relationships. Check out my about page for more info.

    Please, if you are interested in contributing. Get in touch. For examples of my poems check out one I wrote here called Real Love. http://dingdongitsmrwrong.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/real-love-is/ Also search for Real Love and Strong Women. Poems can be as long or short and in any format you wish.

    I look forward to hearing from you! If you are interested in getting involved, please inbox me or email me at dingdongitsmrwrong@yahoo.co.uk

    Peace

    D :)
