Art by Anne Magill


when I feel

I have given too much

of myself away,

allowed observation

of the heart beneath,

revealed too much

of the soul within,

I fade into the shadows

and bleed silently

into the darkness.

    I find myself doing this very same thing at times. What is it that we do or say, that we realise we have given too much of ourselves away? Beautifully written, but sad.

    I am deeply moved Mr. D. I think most feel we give ourselves away at times. How else can we show true affection? Stunning and beautiful words.

    Always, when the heart in engaged deeply. The giving away of self is total. Thank You for expressing how that feels, so beautifully.

    Lovely poem. Along with the picture it really gives the feeling of dejection. I know the feeling expressed.
