Extra sensitivity

Extra sensitivity

The nights carried me

Into realms of otherland

Where my twin soul dwelt

 

Daily wanderings

Living split lives in between

Waters and fires

 

Mother welcomed me

Scented jasmine in her hair

Evergreen her breath

 

Her fragrant solace

An Island within the grey

Laden with colours

 

I bared my chest’s ache

The weight of a million lives

Unloaded treasures

 

Mother grant me breadth

That I may carry with me

More than just the Three

She looked at me stern

The lessons of tomorrow

When will you then learn?

 

My chest fell silent

The burdened heaving display

Of all left behind

 

From the man the chest

From the Tree the bark’s essence

From the green the best

 

Her voice in my head

Statistics of the living

The morrows in lead

 

The journey in sight

Two worlds crouching side by side

Between dark and light

 

A life, just one more

I pleaded, voice a hoarse pitch

One pure to the core

Precious the morsel

A few lives parcelled in Time

Scars of my battle

 

Mother the remains

Scattered broken I will mend

Will heed not the pains

 

She frowned displeasure

Not every soul is treasure

Think wheat and the chaff

 

Hark my child your gift

Extra sensitivity

May be your worst curse

 

I heard her reproach

Ears that failed to comprehend

Numbers to encroach

 

Sorrow in my soul

I packed my Heart in bundle

Prepared for the trip

      • We do indeed. I do this! Everyday I ask the universe for continued strength to carry these other souls with me. It is impossible for me to ignore the suffering of others, I’m pulled to them, always. And I want to save every broken heart I find.

        Feeling their pain is both beautiful and tramatic for me. It’s inspiring but also a curse, sometimes.

        But it’s what we’ve got to work with. So we do. ♡ Thank you for writing this.

        • I have come to realise that One at a time is more than enough. Small battles won, small solace, just another person living a happier life, just another few smiles. I love the song of Phil Collins that really translates for me that the little we can do can change immensely people’s lives. This song speaks about immediately physical needs but we often ignore that which is not apparent and which often takes many lives
