Between these lines - Minke Biddulph

 

Between these lines lay

the lucid resentment.

Buried beneath our fear of rejection,

feelings shout out our hearts’ intent

 

while the words we have spoken

echo

silence.

 

Behind the deceptive walls

these bruised, bloody hearts

cry and sing and dance-

But they can’t convince our lips to move as

honestly as they do. 

 

Day after day

the courage fades away

And

all that remains is

Feeling and Word,

desperately clawing for one anotherattempting

to show you

what I could not

Say.

 

Be a pebble – Heike Lucht

Find your voice and break the silence

Let its echo thread the needle

To repair the wounds that hold you bound

Let your light shine, blinding

Leave the shadows dancing at its edge behind

Go claim your freedom!

Be the pebble that creates the ripples of

change.
