Words Fall From My Eyes

A random searching of the blogosphere tripped me onto your website. I fell into your “About” page and it stopped me.
I was caught in a delicate web of pain and history that lacerated my heart and refused to allow my thoughts to be distracted from what I was reading.

Here, was a telling that wasn’t simple – just as any life lived is never simple.

Here, darkness and light wrestled for supremacy within the tight confines of a single container; and the weariness of battle stained each goal and perceived failure.

Here, was a tale so fragile, that my hands shook with the responsibility of caring for it – even for this short time.

Your honesty stopped me: made me look fully at you. Made me see a stranger I would never meet, but whose description of self now lay embedded within my memory. One page was all you used to tell me about yourself: about your agony and your dreams; about the will that drove you to put pen to paper.

Your words stopped me; and I had none of my own to offer – to match the gift that you gave.

So bear with me: for as words fall from your eyes, they will find an echo in the tears that fall from mine. And both shall be a celebration of YOU.
 
 
 
Dedicated to: WordsFallFromMyEyes – whose words generated these words. Thank you for sharing; both yourself and your words.
 

 
 
SO TELL ME: What do you think of this piece?

  • Did it engage you?
  • Does the meaning come across? Are there any images or lines you don’t understand or find unclear?
  • Are there obvious errors in spelling, punctuation or grammar?
  • Do you have any suggestions for revision?

Please be brutally honest in your assessments – good, bad or indifferent.
I don’t scare easily; and I really do want to hear what YOU have to say about my work.

Many thanks in advance for your time and your criticism.

  1. My goodness! I am really honoured. I don’t know what to say!!!! I really am. This is just so GENEROUS of you. Thank you so, so much! THANK YOU 🙂 xxx Big kisses! hugs! Thanks! I am truly so honoured…

    I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful week 🙂

    1. Hi Al,

      Sorry for the delayed response, but I’ve been in hospital. I haven’t heard from Noleen and was surprised to find that her blog has been deleted.

      1. No worries. I hope all is okay. I managed to find her elsewhere and she said she deleted it because it was getting her down, and they were the signs she knew only too well so closed it down. She is fine though

  2. Can you tell me if she still blogs? Î hadn’t seen anything since January, and now her blog is gone! As I loved reading it, and she posted diligently, I find I’m worried as to why she has deleted her blog. Any idea? I’m just shooting for closure here, as her blog was just…..something spectacular, and as I looked forward to it every time, I find im disappointed in not seeing it, or even knowing that she and her family are well.

    1. Dear oddgirlnextdoor,

      I’m sorry, but I am unable to help you in gaining that closure. Finding that her blog has been deleted came as a surprise to me as well. You are the second person who has messaged me about this. Kinda came out of left field and I am hoping that the family is OK as well.

Then YOU Said...
