Separating from the madness to a place where I could cope, also the title to my book.

I learned to count early
Read the bible too
Wrath, punishment
Seemed no absolution
Separate at five

In the morning
When I was defiled
Five screams a minute
Five shiny points from
The glass shards

Five fingers, to check off
As I calculate
In five minutes I'm clean
and new
Separated by five degrees

Five from what I don't want
To remember, anything green
Black or brown
Make it easier
Five letters/numbers are my friends

The ceiling fan;
Wood, glass, white, brown, brass
Another set of quints
A quick escape
When I should need one

My rabbit hole wiith
Back-doors aplenty
Five senses all shut down
I've got good and can count
Before what might happen

Safe in numbers, hidden
When I seperate from myself.

2001-2006 Janet Caldwell

Hello Sweetie,
It has been so long since I have been here. I understand this as least mentally and that leads to the survival of the body and soul as well.
I know these feelings intimately...they are part of my group of secret friends.
Excellent write my friend.
The beauty of your soul shines through.Thank you for being brave and helps.

Hey sweetie, this is great. But have I got the message right? You want me to think of 5 great dates I can take you on when you come to England?
No problem.........
But that rabbitt hole thing? Are we getting back to the hundred acre wood again?
