I struggle…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a personal poem.  I have stopped writing books.  I need to take a course.  But I still write some personal poems.

I struggle.
I struggle with fear.
Fear of being abused again.
Fear of people attacking my mind.
I stay calm.  I paint.  It heals.
I write.  It heals.
Slowly my subconscious realises that there is no imminent danger.
Slowly my subconscious realises that I am safe.
Slowly I heal.

Family…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about family.  Cheers!

Family.  What does it mean?
A sense of belonging.
A sense of meaning.
I sit here and think of how I’ve missed your company.
Of the days when I was alone.
Now you are here.  Sharing in my joy.
Sharing in my family.
It gives me strength.
It gives me hope.
Family.
Be strong.
And love.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for her book Martha.  Cheers!

Our tenderness.
Your gentleness.
We lay together.
It has been so long.
So long that I have felt a touch.
So long that my spirit has soured.
So long that I hear a sigh and a groan.
It is love.
But my heart breaks.
It has been too long.
Too long silent.
Too long alone.
With humility and love.
My heart breaks.
Your sighs and gentle touch heals it.
Once again I am whole.
I love you.  You love me.
It is right.

Courage…a poem

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about Courage for her book Martha.  Cheers!

I stand before you.
Naked in my tears.
With all my courage I stand before you.
Not knowing your opinion.
Not knowing my fate.
Not knowing if you will judge me.
For what I have faced.
For what I have been.
I am mentally ill.
I stand before you.
Naked in my tears.

Love you have found me.

Is it true love?  Only time will tell.

I dare to open my heart.

My heart lays vulnerable on the ground.

Be still my beating heart. 

I love you so.  And you love me.

We are a whole.  In unity.

I face the future.

Strong and bold.

With your love the future I behold.
