Healer Willow Twirls

I wrote  this  little  ditty back in  2013. I was in a  bad place  ….it’s  so strange looking  back on  your  early  work. It obvious I  did not like myself very much  then.

Healer willow Twirls

 Whitewalls roll and swirl as willow heals

Will she ever escape from how it is, that others feel.

Lashes, slashes and wheals she hides them all from view

The stairwell whore  throws out swill she knows what to do.

Whitewalls  roll and swirl as willow heals

In the stairwell  the whore swills away her skills.

Wishing things better, never, never makes things so

willow is a healer, but she cannot heal willow

Whitewalls  roll and swirl as willow heals

Ills twirl  and swirl and woes beset the healer

Weeping  softly in the stairwell no one cares how the whore  feels

Sills  and trills the drowning healer willow the whore of the stairwell.

    That was so very sad, Sis. It sounds like you were going through a dreadful time. I am glad that you managed to get out of that place into a happier one. 💖

    When climbing mountains it’s good to look back at how far you’ve traveled to get where you are. I’m so glad you love yourself more now … and I’m glad you expressed how you felt then.

    Willow, I’m glad you’re not in that “place” anymore. It’s hard, I know, having struggled with depression. Writing it out as you’ve done over the years is great therapy. Hugs to you 🤗💕
