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.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends.  Cheers!

I stand alone.

I face my illness alone.

But no!  You are there my friend.

I can say to you things about every day happenings.

I can say to you what I can’t say to others.

I can reveal to you my deepest secrets.

Without bounds.  Without discretions.

Will I dare?

Even talking of the simplest things brings relief.

I converse with a fellow human being.

I converse and communicate.

I open the door and pull back.

Don’t flood her with information!

Stand back, only crack the door.

And let her hear the echos of your soul.

The echoes of your soul.

Oh my friend I miss you.

Suddenly I need you more than ever.

My family is still important,

But I can’t tell them everything that I can tell you.

My old paranoia is back.

Who will you tell?  Can I trust you?

I have trusted you in the past.

You’ve always been there for me.

I open up even more.

I walk with you and heal slowly.

To open up is to heal. 

Thank you my friend.  Thank you.
