Day 19 Nano Poblano: Harsh words,crossed lines.

It is slipping  through  my fingers, I cannot catch it before it is too late

Slow motion drawls  the hateful words and still they come

I am trapped, frozen by fear I want to scream ‘Stop  the anger stop the hate.’

The things,  the people I love  the most  are  being pushed away

No way back so much said

A torrent from one side, a deluge of words. Silence  from the other. Nothing to say?

Stop it please God  help before  the link is cut and my heart is dead.


Shut up, shut off those stupid Christmas adverts they are  not true

Happy families, hearth and home all safe  and happy, snow falling?

Too many festive days  have ended in tears, a look a word …. you know that is true.

It is making  me ill with worry it is eating me up, I do not know  the line they are calling.

Words said in haste  cannot  be taken back so easily , they get stuck  they mutate

Meanings  get changed, the truth slips away through the cracks, it sneers

Twisting and pulling  the situation out of control. This is too much to contemplate.

I cannot see how they can find their way back, Too much testosterone , it will end in my tears.


Yea Mark

    I’d say many recognise these sentiments. Well said, Willow.

      Very often things get so stressed as Christmas approaches so much is expected. All you see are the beautifully made but completely over the top TV adverts which do not help the struggling family,single mum, family at war or anyone normal. I have had too many stressful Christmas to be sucked in anymore. Call me a grump but you cannot please everyone all of the time. This week has seen us locked in a family row which I hope can be sorted today. Hence my angxt. Oh! Sorry you did not deserve a rant. xxx

    Such a tug of war. So much angst. Hope the noise level drops and resolutions come of this. ❤ ❤ ❤ Well done as usual.

    Earth is borne of devil
    Evils pass these lands
    Falls on we to revel
    in greener pasture lands.

    So whence the devil’s wind blow
    and your heart should rage below
    cross your crucifix, dear friend
    and on these words bestow:

    Lord for I am worthy,
    I alone your shining light –
    Darkness can only scurry
    as I wield your wondrous might.

    So when devils portray me
    and life’s joys betray me –
    and others just belay me –
    Remember only this:
    ’tis I who is sun
    ’tis I who is might.
    Forever I will conquer the Devil’s night.

    We must plant the seed of our own green pastures, Willow, amongst the weeds and stones Satan has placed there. Toss them to the side. Use the rotting weeds as fertilizer, and the stones as a wind-break wall.

    A rant for a rant! Hope things start looking upwards…..
