a girl named eclipse

Something a little different…..

a girl named eclipse

a poet born
between a nightmare and soliloquy
surfacing from the deep
to write poetry from beyond
the penumbra of her heart
where loneliness pulsates in tones
echoes of the forsaken
serving as hallowed church bells
chiming the sad truth
not all of us are meant to be loved
like this child of the shadows
a girl named eclipse

  1. “not all of us are meant to be loved”

    Ahh that line…something about it just got me. I think sometimes we are all a little afraid that we are Eclipse and those sad and melancholy bells chime their refrain to us that love is for others, not for us.

    The poem is so haunting and perfectly done in its marriage of vulnerability, pain, and ethereal beauty.

    1. You are one of the few that has delved into that line in this way. Yes, at one point or aother,
      I believe we all wonder if those bells are chiming for us. Very impressed by your thoughtful
      comment. For me, the entire poem was that one line along with your thoughts.

      It was written, one night I was feeling those very same sentiments.

      Your beautiful words and thoughts, really touched me. You read me very well. So appreciate that.
      Feeling like a lucky guy to have someone talented and thoughtful like you interpreting my work.
      Thank you for your gracious words. They are treasured.

      Be safe.
      And stay inspiring.

      1. I have nights like those, I walk that exact same path sometimes—I’m surprised that we haven’t bumped into each other yet on that twilight road 😉

        Thank YOU for such a warm and heartfelt comment in response. It makes me feel seen and heard. Xoxo

  2. I believe that melancholy will be what we remember of these current times… if we ever can go back to what was before? Going to the grocery store and not being treated like cattle in shoots just feed ourselves. Will handshakes and hugging strangers in need become a thing of the past. I’ve got a neighbor who is a WWII Vet and I think living through the Depression still weighs heavy upon his heart (as well as his time in service – though he entered towards the end and may not have seen as much ‘front line’ action as others).


  3. This brought tears to my eyes. It is so hard sometimes to look at life and love pass us by. My hearts breaks a little at the truths that lie in this poem. Wonderfully written though. I send you a hug to ease your troubled heart!


    1. I have a little melancholy smile on my face. There are some truths in this poem. I like to think
      that everyone is meant to be loved, but it doesn’t always seem to happen that way.

      Touched by your beautiful reaction and words. Thank you so much for sharing them with me. It means
      so much. Grateful for your kindness and support.


  4. I have met Eclipse, Destiny, Faith, Hope and Karma. A lil piece of all reside in my vessel. But I have never seen someone Eclipse in this manner. Very nice read Drew
    Hey…..only 3 more big sleeps and its Friday. Ur getaway day🧚‍♀️ Happy for u. Come by and see what’s happening on my end. U still havnt told me anything after reading my DarkShadow one….


    1. Oh, thank you for this beautiful message and your lovely appreciation.
      Sadly, the government here decided to extend the state of emergency and
      the airports remain closed. Thus, my flight was cancelled and I am still
      here on this island.

      Appreciate your kind words. I will be over to your blog


  5. “I a surprised you didn’t call me (the hopeless romantic) out.” Well, I know you’re a hopeless romantic so no need to call you out. I think you believe everyone is meant to be loved, even Eclipse, even in those dark moments. Xoxo

        1. I know the little guy is.
          I think my Thursday post will have to be comments closed. So many people are visiting me blogging is nearly impossible.

          I have three different friends who brought priests to bless me in the hut. Another one scheduled for tomorrow. It has been an emotional day….in a good way, but emotional nonetheless. Everyone so worried.

          I alwasys talk about not having romantic love, but wow, i am overwhelmed with the other kind. It almost seems unfair to be so loved.

          1. I can only imagine – you’ll be inundated with well wishes and goodbyes. Says a lot about you, how well loved you are. It’s not unfair, it’s what you deserve. And I have no doubt that you’ll find romantic love too – I’m from the future, trust me 😂.

            I suspect many of your next few weeks will be very emotional days… hang in there my vagabond poet.

          To be honest with you, after replying to your comment earlier this morning, I took a nap and just woke up.

                1. I hope you had a great birthday.

                  But you see how many followers I have. If I did a birthday post for your I would have several dozen
                  requests from other ladies for the same. Then, my blog would be the birthday blog.
                  Can’tdo that.
                  Thank you for understanding
