Whispers in the Night

Whispers in the night

bring memory into full focus.

It is as if your life is a series of

never-ending still photographs posed and etched

onto and into your mind.

Perhaps fading a bit in color, smell

taste and touch

but never actually melting away.









Dedicated to the ones who face their truth. Β Β Imani, at https://twentyonegramblog.wordpress.com/ this one is for you!

    This is so deep and beautiful even though it has a tinge of sadness in it.

    Thank You! Nightmares also plague me every night. If it is the same one, for me, that usually means I need to process something. Take good care! πŸ’œ

    Reblogged this on 21gram.soul.blog and commented:
    Put simply, having this lady in my life is a precious gift. Alexis, the author of the fantastic book, untangled, is one of only a handful of SRA survivors that I have personally come across. She is special. She understands me, inside out. I understand her too. We are cut from the same cloth. We know what SRA is like, and neither of us are going to shut up talking about it either. We live by the same values. She inspires me, as she is already published, and has written several books which you can find on Kindle. As Alexis says, the photographs in our mind fade, but never actually melt away. Buy her book, she is just SPECIAL xxxxx xxxxx πŸ’

    Yes, it will always be with you. And here’s the thing: it’s not about what happened–it’s about the narrative we create.
