Biography of Barbara Vanier

Barbara Vanier poet

I would appreciate, if you have the time, to leave me your interpretations of what you read here. I enjoy the many aspects of thought that others have upon reading my poems. I was a young farm child. I moved to a fishing village when I was abut 10 and mother remarried. Somewhere around 12 I guess I was molested by my brother. It took years to realize it wasn't my fault and that what happened was wrong. In those years I found many self destructive habits. A constant through it all however was my desire to write my thoughts and feelings in poems or songs. At 46 I still do this today although the addictions are no longer present. Being able to put my thoughts and feelngs to pen has always made me feel better and sometimes allowed for a bit of healing as well. Three failed marriages and four children later I will continue to write. It may take time but I will try my best to share with you who and what I am.

Bleeding Heart

Desperate, He reaches out seeking love
In the vacuum of that heart
Rejection, thrust back into the atmosphere of loneliness again
Anger, the rage of years of tears
The zombie begins to awake
Satiated mind of times and comes and comes again

Who will help this sorrowed soul
Tortured twisted torn apart

[Hata Bildir]
