Expressive and Emotional word content… poetic justice… my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.

Emotional Parallel



You are the trickle of rain, the first droplet surprisingly gentle and pure, nourishing the earth,

You are the sound of the breeze, the sigh of the wind, gently stroking my hair, as you continue on your path.

The warmth of the sun on a summers day, the glistening light warming the coldest heart, drying my tears,

You are the sweetest snowflake, gentle kisses of crystal, your beauty evident in its whitened trail.

The deepened roots and the droplets of dew, you remain fresh and alive like the bloom of new petals, everlasting and pure.

You are everywhere, in every smell, touch, taste and sight,

No longer in body, yet I see your reflection in the ripples of the water, the shadows from the trees,

As I feel you still, my heart whispers and I hear you whisper back, Then I know you are not gone.

An Angel at my wedding 😇

My wedding day will be so many things. A day that we planned, you and I.

As I put on my dress, I can see you next to me, whispering that I’m your Angel and that our bond is unbreakable and strong. I know you are right and I know that even death can’t separate us.

In my mind I can see you, your beautiful dress and your smile in the sunlight,

I see your eyes sparkling and your face glowing as you take your place next to me.

I can feel your hand In mine as I walk towards my new husband and I know that you will be so proud as you dab your eyes. My ever constant.

As I whisper ‘I do’, I know you will be smiling and nodding your head. Family meant so much to you.

I can hear you saying that I am not alone and I know that gives you peace.

My tears will encompass so many emotions. I will cry for the day that is, but I will cry also for you and the day that never was. A day without you.

I can see the table and the empty seat, but I know I will feel you.

As we raise our glasses and toast a new life, I will also toast yours too.

As I dance and enjoy the music, I will imagine you are dancing and celebrating too.

I will look towards the stars like you told me, and I will smile and whisper ‘I love you’. As they twinkle, I will hear your reply.

My beautiful mum, now my forever Angel.

Always in my heart xxx

Memory Lane

A myriad of memories blur the edges of my despair,

Wash away the crippling pain with their softened touch.

I can see them before me,

Playing on, like a muted movie,

My life stark in the spotlight,

I watch alone.

I see a child dancing to her own music,

Her innocent mind punctuated only with love and security.

I feel her childlike hope,

Her dreams, laid out before her,

No fear as she looks to her side,

Her hand held tight.

The reel quickens as I fall for it’s lure,

I feel myself falling into the web,

Memories charming,

Reliving moments gone,

The odour of old, filling my senses,

Nostalgia knocking,

I surrender.

Sleep engulfs me as I lose my reality,

Floating, I hear the sigh escaping,

Forgetful, I pray,

In my minds eye,

she’s there smiling,

Yesterday feels closer now,

My hand reached out,

Not letting go

I awake to the sound of bird song,

Dazed, My eyes remain closed,

Refusal, I can only hope,

The light is brighter,

Life remains,

My hand is empty now,

Her touch still warm.



Hazy, though somewhat clear,
I wander,
Deep into my own being,
non faltering,
I hide,
Embracing my core

Safety, I seek fresh Solitude,
Pure freedom,
Expressive devour,
I watch quiet,
My own being,
Aware I become

Building, I grow ever stronger,
Inner prowling,
Morphing into my entirety,
I reach deeper,
I become,
The creation I own.

The mind of a deep thinker…or complete rubbish…it is all down to interpretation and perception…

Complete me

Hold me when I’m falling,
Cushion my landing,
Wipe my leaking tears,
Stroke me,
Stand strong by my side.

Quieten my beating heart beat,
Soothe my aching,
Hold my body tightly,
Make me feel safe.

Quench my growing thirst,
Feed my hunger,
Devour me,
Tame my inner tiger,
Fulfill my deepest desire.

The mind of a deep thinker…or complete rubbish…it is all down to interpretation and perception…
