Feeling Invisible

by Sandra
(Liverpool,Merseyside, UK)

I clench my arms around my legs to feel anything and pull them towards me..why can't they see me?

I feel the heart and my heart is hurting. I am too ashamed of feelings of worthlessness to ask for help so feel frozen like ice.

I see a large furry animal, a big dog in front of me. He comes up with big friendly eyes. He's crouching down but close enough for me to feel the care and concern. Laying my head on his side I feel relieved.

Something has acknowledged me. I want him to stay, not abandon me like everybody else.

He stays for long enough to feel my heart warm a tiny bit.

Beautiful Metaphors
by: Laura

Sandra, your writing touches my heart and your metaphors are rich and meaningful.

There are so many of us who have experienced what you describe.

I hope you will continue to be present with your inner experiences and to express them, let them flow.

I used to connect with this from Rumi, back when I was experiencing a similar kind of pain.

"Keep knocking, and the joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who’s there." ~Rumi

Thank you, again, Sandra. You have what it takes for the day to come when you look back on this time in your life in gratitude for the growth it brought you.
