Writing on Wednesday

Writing on Wednesday is part of my New Year's Challenge to do some creative writing every week.


Amongst Friends

Leftover memories
(and dreams)
Come tumbling down
(unbidden)
The walls so carefully built
To hold them back.

And long forgotten wishes
(perhaps not so forgotten)
Drift to the surface
(wishes float)
of Thought
And make themselves known.

Words once swallowed
(in humility, not pride)
Are spoken aloud
(sometimes shouted)
Without fear,
For here it is safe.

And the tears
(oh, the tears!)
Held back for so long
(oh, how long!)
Now course freely down cheeks,
Here,
Amongst friends.
