It’s Been a While…

Posted in Ramblings with tags , , , on 2014/11/19 by R L Burns

It’s been a long time since I posted anything on this site – or anywhere, for that matter.  I’ve been quite ill off and on, had three surgeries in the past two years…I just haven’t seemed to have the energy to put into anything other than feeling better and working.  I realized tonight that I actually miss writing – here or anywhere – so I think I will pick it up again.  Or try, anyway.  In the past I was seething with emotional turmoil and there appeared to be no end of things about which I could write.  Nowadays I feel rather…flat.  I don’t know if I can even do this anymore.  Hopefully I will be able to come up with something interesting to say.  I will think about it and write a new post.  Please be patient with me as I try to relocate my voice.  Depression and self-destruction nearly silenced it for good a couple of years ago.  Perhaps I can find it again.  Cheers to all!!

the last strains of

a misplaced melody

echo in her ears

as she searches

in vain

for the rest of the tune


stars scattered

across the sky – like

the shattered memories

she cannot gather


the images,

like the lost tune,

glisten enticingly,




just beyond

her reach –


tumbling silently


the blurred edges

of her memory.
