Longing … in the night
~ There is inside a place in me, a place I dare not go the longing … in the night. * He must know of my longing, buried deep within, … and my endless, sleepless nights restless … with desire. * There’d been a time he’d ‘known’ reaching out to me, … Satiating passions need Conquering with … his will. * Now only nights of emptiness that once were so divine. Perfection of the night time … when safe within his arms, securely loved, a certainty within … the night time’s hours. * All lost except the craving, the longing … in the night. ~ Penny L Howe, 2013

You truly are gifted
Hello Lisa, thank you very much. Some fairly deep emotions there. How are you doing? xx
hi penny , ya i could feel that in ur poem!
Im slowly standing up again think its got alot to do with just being or allowing myself to be with te pain /sorrow,also amazing like i said in my blog how ur brain allows stuff at certain times to arise ..thank goodness its not all in on go!
The brain is quite the most fascinating thing on the planet isn’t it. I’m sure it has some kind of safety mechanisms in there to help us survive in life. Especially our own emotions! It has worked that way for me in some of life experiences. Have a really good rest of your week Lisa! xx
thanks penny sure gonna try
