My Tyburn Tree

shining kaleidoscopic white
she bleaches my eyelids
out from the inside;

the sun is shining
the sky is blue
my head overflows;
memories of two;

it all will fade
you will tire;
others with a lighter smile
will call to take you higher;

does the sun really shine
or do the clouds just give way?
free to think this forever
I kick the stool under me
away.

    oh the feelings of fear and loss…everyone has them..don’t kick your stool out just yet. there is always tomorrow.

  2. I have to confess, I had to look up Tyburn tree… and now I wish I had know about it when I visited London last year. Sarah Jane is right, you make it sound almost welcoming, but you have so much more to give this world… nail the stool to the floor.
