PROMISES UNDER THE MOON
By Katherine Givens
Wreathed in silver light,
Beneath the wandering moon,
Love comes slow. Banded in your arms,
Lulled into the heart’s quiet tune,
Grief fades into the darkness
Outside our cocoon.
Trust exchanged for trust,
Faith given for faith
We ascend—not fall—into passion.
Without greed, without regrets,
We belong to the night
As we belong to the day.
Our souls remain as one
So long as the moon gleams.
I think that this sounds like most of us. We are free to be ourselves, when no-one can see us!
Feeling unsure and nervous
Feeling lost and alone
Feeling not sure what I am
Its hard to explain this feeling inside
Its trying to escape and I’m not sure it should!

A poem by /u/Poem_for_your_sprog
The sun goes down upon the Ankh,
And slowly, softly fades –
Across the Drum; the Royal Bank;
The River-Gate; the Shades.
A stony circle’s closed to elves;
And here, where lines are blurred,
Between the stacks of books on shelves,
A quiet ‘Ook’ is heard.
A copper steps the city-street
On paths he’s often passed;
The final march; the final beat;
The time to rest at last.
He gives his badge a final shine,
And sadly shakes his head –
While Granny lies beneath a sign
That says: ‘I aten’t dead.’
The Luggage shifts in sleep and dreams;
It’s now. The time’s at hand.
For where it’s always night, it seems,
A timer clears of sand.
And so it is that Death arrives,
When all the time has gone…
But dreams endure, and hope survives,
And Discworld carries on.
Fantasy author Sir Terry Pratchett has died aged 66, having had Alzheimer’s disease for eight years. “The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds,” said Larry Finlay of his publishing company, Transworld. Best known for the Discworld series, Sir Terry wrote more than 70 books over his lengthy career. He was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2007, but continued writing, completing his final book last summer. The author died at home “with his cat sleeping on his bed, surrounded by his family,” Mr Finlay said.
Leonard Nimoy, who enchanted generations of audiences with his depiction of Star Trek’s human-alien philosopher and first officer Mr Spock, has died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 83.
The actor died on Friday morning of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Bel-Air, his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told the New York Times. He had been hospitalised at UCLA medical center with breathing difficulties days earlier.
Nimoy’s last tweet, sent on Monday, suggested he knew the end was near: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”
“Live long and prosper” was the Vulcan salutation which he made famous as Spock, and which he and fans carried into real life. Tributes to the actor, director, photographer, writer, poet, musician and teacher agreed he had indeed done so.
“I loved him like a brother,” William Shatner, who starred alongside him as Captain Kirk, wrote on Facebook. “We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”
George Takei, who played Sulu, said the world had lost a great man. “And I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to ‘Live Long And Prosper,’ and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.”
I really like this. It is spot-on about how I feel and how I would prefer to feel.
Thank you for sharing this with us all :D

I’m so tired
If I complain
my frustration is met
If I am wronged
I must not have been
If I suffer
I must have deserved it
In the end
I just want someone to say:
“I believe in you”
“You’ll overcome it all”
without taking faith away
when they feel like it
Take all that I am and all
that I will ever be and turn it
upside down, take what I am and
kill what I could be. remind me of
every mistake I make and ignore that
I am only human. break me and when
there is nothing left, break that as well!

Why did you have to leave us all behind?
We need you so much
Your advice, your guidance and you!
It feels as though no-one cares or understands,
Every where I look, turn, I’m alone and it hurts.
But no-one knows, because expressing this is wrong, being me is wrong.
I’m just wrong.
6 years is a long time, I’m not sure I will make it.
Maybe if I ask nicely he will take me soon?
I’m not sure what I can take any more
This living is painful, it hurts so much.
Many of the scars are unseen by many.
Why did you have to go and leave me all alone?
Help me understand who I am and how to go on, in a world that is just so confusing?
HELP is only….. well I don’t know.

I just signed the petition “Stop Privatisation of The Land Registry” and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.
This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here:
