    Default Torn

    I wrote this about 6 months back, and included it in my TTC journal a while ago, but thought i'd post it here - it was written not long after our second cancelled IUI cycle





    A journey of a million miles
    Trapped within a heart
    My feet can not move
    But i've been to hell and back
    I've smiled
    I've bled
    I've wept
    Endured pain and humiliation
    I've felt such joy
    So much sorrow
    Been on the brink of insanity
    A viscious cycle that keeps repeating
    Sapping me of all my strength
    I long for the day our journey ends

    Oh BG, that is so beautiful. I hope it helps you, and also others who are also on the same journey as you. I know that your destination will be well worth it when you get there and I am hoping that it is just around the next corner for you.

    how cool is this? i submitted this poem to a poetry site - and they want to publish it in a book of poetry! PLUS they asked me to submit another poem to be printed in another book - saying that the strength in it showed that it would be appropriate for the book they're printing...

    i checked it out completely (including an indepth conversation with the friend that got me onto the site) - and there is no obligation to pay out anything - it's just a showcase thing.... i'm stoked!

    but yes, it will cost me a few dollars - i'll buy a copy of the book when it's released!

    just thought i'd update - got the proof for my poem the other day and sent it off yesterday - apparently it's supposed to be printed in the "spring of 2008" in the US, so i'm guessing that means our Autumn - which is SOON! the books won't be cheap, but they're a limited edition thing, so i'll buy them anyway...

    the latest "challenge" from DH involves me collating all the poems i've written (cos apparently having scraps of paper in each room just isn't good!) and looking to put together and publish my own book! scary, but something to aspire to...

    Ooh, how exciting BG. I think your own collection is a great idea.

    Wow BG, that's awesome. And to think - we'll be able to say we knew you before you were famous .

    OMG - IT'S HERE!!!


    ok, just a little excited post - looks like i'm gonna be in three books - the first arrived today! woo hoo!!!

    i'm pretty sure that, being that it's a collection of poems done specifically for the poets on the website, it's been set up to have your individual poem at the front (have to check with my friend about that) - but page ONE has my poem on it! i'm all giddy and excited - can't wait to show DH when he gets home tomorrow!
