On the edge she stands

           Emptiness deep inside
      A ocean of pain without end 
          On numb feet she stand

        A frozen shadow of doubt

The heart knows no time when love lives within
Reviewed by Kate Burnside
Such a contrast between the interminable "waiting" for the sudden appearance or interjection of what is hoped for or expected, and the perpetual ocean of tears and pain keeping her on the edge. You capture a state of counterpoised limbo that inhabits many of our lives in some shape or form, Tinka, but, even with numb feet and dead legs, we seem to manage to hang on. Very powerful writing. Glad to see you back on the move in the Den again! :)) xx

God bless you,

Tinka, I sense tragedy in the wings here. "on the edge she stands -- emptiness deep inside - an ocean of pain without end". Powerful lines harboring such grief and desperation. This is a moving work Tinka. May peace and love be always with you my friend. Jon Michael
