Hope

By Anna Jeavons / 12 May 2020 / Comments Off on Hope

See black clouds hover to compress the brain. Negative words cut deep. Acid on tongues. A bog like stench engulfs every cell. Drags down to depths unknown. Slowly somewhere a glimmer of light melts the gloom to reveal the sweet honey voice and fragrant caress of a loved one’s touch.

Anxiety

When I awaken to a weight on my chest, I think of all the things I couldn’t leave to rest These thoughts just will not settle and nest And there’s this thing that I cannot test Most nights I lay awake Similar to how in panic I shake And I cannot take The feelings of…

I swim among Ebb and flow No shaky ground for me No dusty wind No muddy feet No need to hug a tree I love my cave My spangled suit I love my home 2O Though dark at night It’s not too bad It’s with the flow I go Come dinner time You never know…

The Sliver of a Silver Lining

By Anna Jeavons / 06 May 2020 / Comments Off on The Sliver of a Silver Lining

To achieve an atmosphere of confidence and optimism I need to shed sincere tears. At times of the offences my unsocial defence was pretence in the, then, present-day sense. Be certain to now resound but not to compound the memories which have already been found. The union so hopelessly needed is fearfully felt – but…

Driving with Fear

By Anna Jeavons / 18 February 2020 / Comments Off on Driving with Fear

Driving home from my daughter’s house dusk turns to dark and I swap seats with my companion fear.
