Letting Go Of Limbo

Living in a ghost town.

Haunted by the spectres
of other people’s sins.

On all sides hemmed in.

Still caught by the fetters
that had kept me down –
That had taught me to feel
I was imaginary,
And no more than a spectre,
A shade in your shadow,
A waste of a wraith, so
unfit to be seen.

But now I know.

I must let go of Limbo,
Break free from Hades, and
return to the real world
Where I can once again grow,
Flourish and show
the beauty that flows all through me.
(Inspired by #MadVerse Prompt ‘We Are Dust And Shadow’)

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
