Stretched too thin

I stiffen

My skin hard as rock

My mind static as a telephone in the wind

I rest in a fetal shape as

Waters rush around me

A let them

I let them rush a by

til my brain gets better service

And my skin softens again

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. You are in the fetal position
    trying to take cover from pain
    it is difficult but not impossible
    self-love to keep being sane.

    Sounds you are hard as a rock
    in a way, you feel this to hurt
    and once more want to be soft
    I’m not able to promise when
    but I know you’ll feel flying aloft.
