Guest Post by Clara – Be gentle with me…

FRIENDS (Photo credit: [Share the Word])

Fellow High-functioning BPD sufferer Clara was inspired by my recent poem Finger on the Trigger and decided to write her own poem using the format I had used. I offered to share it here for her as she does not have her own blog but wanted to know what I thought of her poem, I loved it and I’m sure you will too…

It’s about the painful push-pull that you can get in friendships between two people who both have bpd, something I’m sure a lot of us can relate to…
You scrapped the script
And lightly tripped
Back into my life.
 
You’d said we needed time and space.
It felt like a knife in the heart –
A slap in the face.
 
And then you tried to re-engage……
 
I’d started to accept,
To gradually just disconnect,
But you grabbed hold of me again….
 
It took just a moment to sink.
I’m in pain at my core
I don’t know what to think
 
And I’m helpless once more….

  1. Reblogged this on Life In a Bind and commented:
    Sometimes I write poetry of dubious quality. As a teenager, I did it a lot. In those days, they were of even more dubious quality because some of my favourite poets were from the late 19th/early 20th century, and I tended to use the same sort of language, which made them a hideous combination of old and new.
    I have a tremendous fear of sharing my poetry with others – somehow, much more so than writing a piece of prose, it feels like complete nakedness and vulnerability. As a teenager, I wrote a poem about how scary it feels – it was in the style of T.S. Eliot’s ‘The love song of J. Alfred Prufrock’. It wasn’t quite as dubious in terms of its quality, as some of the others.
    But today I’m taking a leap of faith and sharing this one. It feels odd to be reblogging my own guest post from this fantastic site, but I’m not that hot on blogging ‘etiquette’ or conventions!
    This was written before I became involved in blogging, hence the different ‘name’. Enjoy, or not, as the case might be – but don’t tell me if you don’t…. 😉
