Anguish within me,
I’m tormented inside. I’m
drowning, falling, lost.

A Poem

Crisp white crystals,
Tumbling; falling,
Cold frosty mornings,
Frozen fingers and toes.

Snowdrops peep up from below,
Crocuses burst with colour,
Birds roam the ground for food,
The promise of new life.

White sky,
White ground,
So clean and bright,
A perfect winter’s morning.

The fear creeping in,
Crippling my breathing,
Violent trembling.

Disclosure is hard.
Being totally honest.
Just trust in your gut.

Oh to sleep and dream,
No nightmares, or fears, or frights,
Just peaceful slumber.

When shadows come in,
They threaten to overwhelm,
I drown in darkness.

Home

Home

A Poem

by Scott Webb on Unsplash

They say it’s where the heart is,
A safe space for you and me,
Four walls, some windows, and a door,
Soft plush carpets on the floor.

They say it’s somewhere you make,
A place that can’t really be bought,
For the truth is, a house is not a home,
It takes people to make it so.

They say you can be who you really are,
When you’re there in its warm embrace,
With no one to judge, and no one to harm,
You no more need to hide.

They say it’s a place for us, both of us,
A haven of peace and of calm,
We are safe in this space, and no longer alone,
Now that we have this place called “Home”…

Stockings are ready,
Carrots, mince pies, and sherry,

Brass band playing loud,
Christmas carols by candle,
Songs we know and love.

It’s getting nearer,
Christmas songs and baking treats,
Panicked shopping done.
