Why write of love?

“Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.”
– Germaine Greer

“Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is the richness of self.”
– May Sarton

Why write of love?

Why write of love?

You want it

Need it

Lost it

Found it

Or possibly

Have it

Though if you

Thought you’d found it

You might be too busy

Trying to hang on to it

Because if you loose It

Once again

You are alone

By yourself

Yet I have never been

As lonely as when

I was married

And love had nothing

To do with it

Bisous,

Léa

Bread & marriage

“The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.”     –  Dorothy Parker

BREAD & MARRIAGE

years and years

of baking bread

bread I did not eat

did not want

the emptiness remained

feeding family

feeding others

the staff of life

kneading

always

needing

divorce

can be a beginning

i don’t bake bread

anymore

but the emptiness

has gone

other hungers

emerge

-Bisous,  Léa
