A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



Only sorrow makes you whole

Endless joy, in surfeit
Weighs you down in breathless gasps

Or puts you on a hurdy-gurdy
of emotions , throwing you
inside out

in sheer reckless joy,
your inhibitions thrown to the winds
your defences down..
your vulnerability glaring…

Then sorrow strikes –
In One chilling moment,
dunked, as if in ice-cold water

Your armour is back.
Painful, digging at the
softest corner of your heart

Yet you feel whole…

All the pieces where they should be
Cold, yet strong.
Despairing, yet determined.
It’s a thin line between
sorrow and joy.

But you’re far better off
making sure you know sorrow
she takes care of you
she puts you together..
That’s why you feel so..

I know…
Because only sorrow makes
you feel
