Scribing Her Scars

(for Lee)


Write away, Love.
…….Drink deep now, and slay
your dragons with a pen.
…..Bold and broken, you
are mighty. Hold tight
…………to hope, pressed full page. Someday,
……………..we’ll love the world again.

  1. ♥ Hope pressed full…yes, filled and brimming spilling from the page. Beauty.

    Wow-this is wonderful writing!Loved the richness!

  3. This made me tear up. “slay / your dragons with a pen” — writing is so good for that, if you can get yourself in that state when you are so broken. This is very inspirational for all of us who have, at one time or other, been broken. “Someday,/ we’ll love the world again” So touching. I understand this line so well. I’m not so sure if we can ever love it as we once did — speaking for myself, anyway. Again, very touching.

    Oh, this is so gorgeous – from beginning to end! 🙂

  6. Your heart must be very big to have written words that speak so deeply and profoundly to those souls so desperately in need of encouragement and solace. A wise and compassionate bit of poetry you have there, my friend. Outstanding, as always. 🙂

    Dang, De, you always blow me away. I wish I had half the grace with words that you do have. I’d love to set this to music…

  9. I’ll always love the world as long as you’re writing in it.

  10. You do a great job here of capturing a very specific tone. That is really difficult.
