“There is a secret medicine given only to those who hurt so hard they can’t hope. The hopers would feel slighted if they knew.”
I’m writing to thank you for sharing in the poetry of #CBAnthology» so far. I believe that disseminating poetry can save us all! But even if you don’t buy into that, you can still enjoy these pages. Share them. Poems are good for you. They’re healing, affirming, reassuring, and we can all use some of that these days, I’m sure.
To that end, I’m offering this growing collection of poetry to my suffering world — my people. I ache for us often. This is my gift of the words that helped me through suffocating darkness. When everything seemed lost, when I was stunned numb by trauma, these poems and poets — conventional and unconventional — reminded me how it felt to be human. They gave voice to my pain, to my loneliness, and eventually, with enough time and reinforcement, to my restored joy.
This is how I’m spending my summer, post-PhD Assault»: healing myself, for the third time in my life, with poems. I’ve got a lot of poetry locked up in my head. And more than a few stories left to tell. I assure you, I’m just getting warmed up.
Yes, It’s poetry, poetics and writing for me, instead of eating, and praying, and loving. Smile. You’re all very welcome to follow along.
And please do comment. I’d love to chat poetry with you. Until then…
