Clarity Came Calling


Exhaustion was my middle name last night
Sleep was my long lost best friend
Rest was beckoning me, begging me for a chance
Finally, my soul and my body gave in.
In my dreams, CLARITY spoke:
If you love him, you must trust him'
And if your worst fears are true, that he is sleeping with her behind your back.
Realize that: His transgressions are his and not yours.
And her transgression is that, she does not love nor respect herself
And that is the worst transgression of them all.

    I particularly liked the use of language, the flow of ideas, the construction. You took me from sleepless frustration to realisation and on to quietness of mind in a few short but beautiful lines. Thank you again for another gem June! (Report) Reply

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
