I turned to writing poetry at a time of a huge transformation and integration in my life…
Everything was taken away and in that empty space. I waited for years alternating between the escapism of wishful thinking and grandiose daydreaming, and being totally lost, abandoned, not trusting the new, real me that was emerging.
Finally, the path has been becoming clearer, leading ever more deeper within myself. A great condensation took place, ideas were let go of, fears were let go of, anger was embraced, self-forgiveness has arrived.....and so it goes onward still, on and on in spirals....it's life. It's my life.
by Romana Anna Nova
I am not afraid to take a step in the dark.
The voice inside
will guide me safely,
like no sight ever could
cut through the illusion.
The sharp edges which
make my eyes and feet bleed,
can't hurt me anymore,
because I'm letting go of all the peripherals.
What is unnecessary
will be severed.
The blades still cut.
My eyes and feet bleed as I walk,
but it doesn't hurt.
I let go of what is to meant to go.
I let the blood drain,
and that's what keeps me alive,
because I no longer
resist the edges that
are there to shape me.
Surprised how little I need.
A narrow edge,
and nothing to hold on to,
is proving to be the safest haven,
where nothing can be lost,
Only the experience matters
of falling slowly
that there is no bottom to the void.
Somehow the mere force of gravity
strips away all that is arbitrary
and distills my essence-
the hard core
can touch it.
