Broken Glass



Day, melting lavender into

darkness all around me

fragrance, from roses

straying; all the sadness

in the sweet – sweetness

in the sad

Nothing begins, nothing ends

that is not paid for with

pain and tears


I am sick of loneliness

heartache, grief, but most

of all; I am sick of me!

sad, strange, hopeless

dying eyes – lips that kiss

no more – with all regret

the waste of my life


Woe today and coming tomorrow

where is found a limit to these


My sins, my fate in agony

hanging here beneath the

balancing sky

Alas; it creeps, dark and light

All life

More afraid to live than to die


The glass is half full

yet my glass is broken

This heart in slow decay

my days in the yellow leaf

fair hope is gone and all

the flowers dying

A sad and lonely life I lead

the last leaf

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.
