Hope

Rain has fallen steadily today
A delicate susurrus
Gently kissing my ears
Softly speaking through my tears

I’ve lost my anchor
Dropped my compass
Walking a path no longer clear
But I sense your presence near

Sorrow blankets you and me
And yet your light radiates
Dispersing all my fear
As your journey brings you here

Tears

Misty morning has broken
My world is wet with tears
Though I move forward
I cannot fight my fears

The ground beneath shakes
Change comes it’s inevitable
Mustering courage and trust
Covering pain that’s unbearable

Poetry is hard today… My world is shifting faster than I can keep up with.
Making sense of this forced change, if sense can be had; is just so damn hard.
I think I’ll leave my umbrella at home… No one will notice my tears.

Stasis

I’m not sure that I’ve any poetical words today
Staring at my notebook, staring at this screen

There are twists and turns happening in the path
I’m flying blind here, there is a light, as yet afar

Life, can you just throw us a bone here?!
A time of calm, of peace, no drama please

~~~~

I don’t know that I had anything erudite to say
Reality intrudes and entices, if you know what I mean

There’s a world in blue eyes, I’m learning to laugh
Apart but in synch, under the same brilliant star

In a short space of time you’ve become so dear
Just days left of waiting, til our hearts find their ease

Heartfelt Thank You

I’ve been away from WordPress for most of the day today. Real Life sometimes needs to be tended to.

I popped on to post a contribution to another blog to find that, to my utter amazement; I’ve had one of the best days for visits to The Eclectic poet since I first joined this site!

I’m not sure what generated this surge of interest but I am delighted beyond words – writers write to be read – but more important, I am grateful and so pleased to see that the post that has attracted this interest has also directed many people to my friend Kim Saeed’s blog “Let Me Reach”.

Thank you to everyone who took time out of this Easter weekend to read my words and even more so for taking the time to click through and learn more about Narcissist Abuse and Narcissist Predators. I hope that by helping get the information out there, fewer men and women will fall prey to Narcissists, that the general public will be better informed and that Targets will not be subjected to misunderstanding and “Victim Blaming”.

So much love and gratitude… I’m overwhelmed. Please spread the word, share the links and support Kim and the wonderful work she is doing.

Blessings K~ xx

Let Me Reach With Kim Saeed

Sam Vaknin, Author: Malignant Self Love – Narcissism Revisited

The Morning After…

My mind is far away today
Perhaps a good thing
The turmoil in my own life demands its due at times
Once it’s had me in its teeth and given a good shake
I want to hole up emotionally
Hide from the world for a while

My mind is a thousand miles from here
Perhaps a good thing
Waking on a stranger’s couch, a little disoriented
Connectedness that is an undeniable force
Pulling out of the despair I feel
For there is a world in this one

Rebirth, renewal, regeneration
Hope that refuses to die
Shedding skin, shedding tears, shedding old selves
Faith in a an ephemeral dream

You are this, You are these

My Knight of the Couch Surf
Awake and come forth
Do not kneel
Only kiss back to life
Your Lady of the Koi Tattoo

~ Hope springs eternal, the stone is rolled back, soul’s light cannot be extinguished ~

Kim Saeed is the heart behind “Let Me Reach”. Please consider making a donation to help her with the wonderful work that she does to help the victims of Narcissist Abuse to find their path of recovery.
On a personal note, Kim’s site has been invaluable to me. I discovered her site just at the time I was trying to extricate myself from the Narcissist relationship in my life. Kim’s guidance and nurturing support may well have saved my sanity and perhaps even my life.
Her approach is balanced, giving solid, useful information on emotional, physcial and spiritual healing.
Thanks for taking a moment to read and help her continue to reach.

Please Donate

Yesterday, I asked for your help.  As of this morning, three generous donors have helped me get to 15% of my goal of $350.00.

While the future looks bright, this month has been a challenge financially.  Primarily because the company I work for part-time, Educational Testing Service, didn’t have the registrants they expected, so they cancelled a few of their rater’s shifts, including mine.  I enjoy working for them because it helps me focus on my true purpose, which is helping victims and survivors of Narcissistic abuse.  At the same time, there’s the possibility of losing work.

I’ve initiated a donation drive in order to help keep the Let Me Reach office up and running during the remainder of April.  With your support, you will help Let Me Reach be able to continue helping victims of Narcissistic abuse.

What’s the drive all about?  I’m trying to raise 350.00 by the…
