I’ve been waiting for my time to come for a while now.
I’ve walked three continents and three island states
and still feel as disconnected with the ground as the wind
must feel when it blows above it.
I dub myself a traveller, but more for the travels to the depth of my soul
than for those that carried me around this earth.
I found that there is beauty in the unknown, but also
that there is splendour in new angles on familiarity.
Creatures of obscurity have been my companions, in my mind,
throughout these years of experience and not one, not one was forgotten.
Was the meaning of it all here all along? I doubt my own conclusion,
for I have not been honest, often with myself, as I took turns of comfort
and convenience rather than ones I longed for most.
In my chosen solitude I discovered grace, but with no one to share it with
I became the voice in my own ears, struggling to make sense
where none was to be born.
And now I come before you, condemned to the shackles of my own existence,
prepared to take on even the most Sisyphean of punishments,
for I have been reborn as a citizen of this reality, to share my thoughts and to become
a writer, to my soul’s content.
This is not a pipe

There was nothing I really could find wrong with this. It flowed so nicely, like someone opening their soul, not sure if this a reflection of you, but if it was, it sure does sound pretty.

A few lines that I absolutely loved were:

"I doubt my own conclusion,
for I have not been honest, often with myself, as I took turns of comfort
and convenience rather than ones I longed for most. "


"I became the voice in my own ears, struggling to make sense"


Although out of context, they still resonate with me, ehh, emotional connections to pieces are always hard to explain. Good work Carmel, I really enjoyed it.

I have nothing I really want to say other than that I connected with this so much, Carmel. And I felt much more connected to you as well, as if just for this moment you were opening up in a way I've never seen you open up before.

"and to become a writer, to my soul's content"

beautiful.
here, My Dear, here it is

My thoughts exactly, and that's the thing that made this so good.

Yes, I emerge from the shadows.
Today I feel electric grey
I hope tomorrow, neon black
