Lucy Reid


Why do you deny me?

Is my soul too tight?

Resist and fight,

Ending with no resolve,

Captivated by a shimmering,

Enveloping my soul,

Bathing in whom?

Eternity spat phlegm in to my silken draped eyes,


But, subsequently clearing,



Proud and gradual,

Re-establishing volatile yearnings,


Never gone, Cherubic song,

Attacking my psyche,

As was always so...

Bathing in my existence,

Words now lost,

Let me submerge a while longer...

Time to shine,

Our time,

Unique, beautiful,

Too transitionary,

So as precious as a jewel.

          very well written and devotedly edited, a delight to read
          a poignant and relatable portrait of anguish and anxiety,
          in the end, its the doubts
          that overwhelm us
          with that lost/suspended feeling, which always trips us up..
          thanks for sharing such a well polished write
