all i've lost
Two years it has taken for fate to concede
That I am not worth the treasures achieved
First went the happiness and joy in my heart
When that light went out, I should have known it would start.
Then went my best friend, my reason for life
My soul mate decided that I shouldn't be his wife.
Next went my ego, self-worth, self-esteem
I wasn't worth the effort or so it would seem
People would treat me like a disposable thing
Something to use and then put in the bin
I started to think that life should be this way
I expected, accepted, heard all they don't say.
Soon I realised I had lost other parts as well
As I dipped and dived to my own little hell
I no longer trusted my thoughts or my feelings
I was seconding guessing myself in all of my dealings
And as if that mistrust wasn't hard enough to take
A dark shadow had fallen that I just couldn't shake.
And then fate thought to take it up a notch
Just when I thought that I'd lost all to be lost
An accusation, a lie, the truth misshapen and bende

Tapestry Heart
I don't see my heart as a flesh and blood organ,
Beating and throbbing, yearning and feeling.
My heart is an intricate, life giving tapestry,
Coloured and textured, knitted and threaded.
Woven by those I touch and have touched me,
Patterned and altered, unpicked and laddered.
I carry with me all of those dear weavers
Friends and family, lover and foe.
I could never change the pattern that's woven
Nor would I, given the chance.

I have always been extremeely creative and I am even a University graduate BA with Honours in Product Design. I love extreme sports and America football.
