    Wrote this for my relatives. In the worst parts of my illness, I didn't keep in touch with them, because I didn't know what to say. Now I'm speaking up more again, and it's rough getting started. A lot of toes stepped on. A lot of things said the wrong way. Hope it will ease up with time.

    Holding Back

    It was only the smoke
    That held me from you
    It was only the mystery
    Of what I
    Was going through
    It was only the well
    Deep, of my heart
    It was only in part
    That I held back from you
    What I was going through.
    My love
    Kept up
    In the quiet times too.


    Sent my poem out to them this morning. Hope it will help us with eachother.
    ((love)) Shannon
