I remember your shoulders
where my fingertips could not hope to reach you.
But I tried.
Your head was so low to the ground
You never saw me looking down at you.
Hoping you would look up
and see me.
You wanted so much to be unseen
Safer that way.
I saw you.
I remember your thin arms
as they clasped your knees
and tried desperately
to hold your sorrow in.
Forgive me for being too shy
to know how to approach you.
I was smaller than you
and had yet to learn my voice.
I remember you.
Could never forget.
Your silence taught me how to listen.
Your pain taught me to talk.

Clicky Clicky the Piccy! (You know you wanna!)
Ok, so if you look at the previous post you might wonder what’s up. Well, I have just started another blog. A place for my love of art, design, creativity and aesthetics. Thing is, not everyone wants to check out other stuff. They come here for poetry! So, I decided to make it fun and user-friendly. I will post links to articles on my other blogs, but discreetly, you just click the photo, and away you go! If you came for poetry, the post isn’t huge or clunky, interrupting important poetry-time and relaxation! Just scroll on by poetry-lovers!
If you kinda like the new features and wanna see more posts, but about a specific area, (like art!)You can also click on the page tabs listed at the top of my header. On the page for that blog, you will find active links for each topic, ready to wisk you away to your hearts delight. Once you finish enjoying my other blog, you can find your way back here, just by clicking the corresponding tab for my poetry blog and selecting A Soft Place To Rest, to come back to the main blog.
I am still working on linking everything up, but I hope to create lots of content for you as time goes by.
