Magpie Tales: Losing Inner Weight



The endless blank pages stir in my heart to fill them. I cut my heart  open and let the blood seep. 

Nothing
Nothing

I listen so hard and drown all the other voices away, as I let my breathing go in sync with the song. But I can no longer get to the heart of it, I can no longer feel it

Nothing
Nothing

Looking at my reflection on water, I shout, "Who are you?" and the water vibrates. I let my hands get to the depth of the reflection,  and I find it

Everything
Everything

Maha: Thank-you for such a beautiful inspiration. Reflecting on the inner world makes the outer world that much more complete. To come full circle we all need a hug o' love!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I think you are incredibly talented for your age. I find it a bit eerie and weird. Or maybe I was just too goofy at that age.

Very nicely done. It so often feels that way. You write beautifully.

Interesting -- reminds me of the question, where do you get your inspiration? Answer -- Just open a vein and let it bleed onto the page.

Very well done Maha, how often we forget how far we are from ourselves....this is a nice reminder. What we tend to look for is most of the time the thing that is so close to us, is'nt it!

Susan said...
