Over the last several months, I have periodically been absent from AD. Here was where I was...


Notice: Overdue
Time blurred as days slid back
And forth over each other
The friction sent signals
Of mental distress and smoldered
With synaptic junctions crossed
 and hot wired
My bed, the coffin of my missing life
Lying horizontal, felt dusty
I opened blood shot eyes
Misty sprinkles on the lashes
From the sting of sunny light
Warmth and a sense of life
Returned to my fingertips,
My womanhood, my lips
Shackles of the irrational fell away
As I stood and swayed
My stomach grumbled and wondered
When the last time it had been fed
In the loss of my soul from the journey
Through the mangled jungle of my mind
Laughter erupted from my neglected belly
Alert and upright
My spirit freed from the negativity
Back with the living, breathing in reality
Found a warning from a loved one or two
Notice: Return to life long overdue

You escaped a while , but came back. So did I from Nov 03 til March 04, shock treatments and all. Don't remember Christmas or my family and left my schizo hubby home alone, but he survived with friends help and waited for me. I could of lost him if he had been a normal person and did not understand me. Lost him in death 2007 anyway.

Thanks for sharing this with us. This is a very touching write. A beautiful write. Nice to have you share your talent with us.
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 3/17/2008
This is a blessed write - blessed in the sense that you can look back and put things into some kind of perspective and realise that, yes, that WAS yesterday and now today has turned the page. Often we don't realise that we're "going through it" until we're out the other side. Many of us can relate to that hungry, rumbling soul-belly even whilst seemingly feasting on the finest of fare... in which case, will we ever wake up to the blessedness of the new dawn?! Thank God your return to life is embraced fully in the knowledge and understanding of where you've hitherto been. Go forth and enjoy... Only you can feel it, only you can speak it, only you can KNOW it! This is more to be celebrated than fine gold. Bless you and thank you for allowing us to share this understanding with you. Kate xx

Glad that you have been able to fight those demons off and were able to feel the love of those around you who wanted you to return...

Well hell, Elizabeth, when you get down with the business of telling it like it is, you are unique . . . There are so many good lines in the moody piece it is hard to find just one to highlight, but it has to be this one . . . "My bed, the coffin of my missing life" . . . It does NOT get any more descriptive that this . . . This is a slice of unnatural life . . .

Since first 'meeting' you, I've often wished there was a sure cure for this enslaving condition. Thank you for sharing this. You may not feel like you are a strong woman but you really are! Love and Hugs~

Sweet the way you found the source of life and reason to go on. Just my take on your verses. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you, Liz.

Oh, I know how this feels. Sometimes you feel like you are standing in quick sand and time is still, if only either would move then you could escape. Good to know your loved ones were able to reach into you and help. ~ Sara

Welcome back, welcome home. You've been missed. You take the reader by the hand and lead them to where you've been, and where you are: hopefully, doing better. Excellent.

I so easily related to this write as if we had shared soul secrets an you had written them down as if we were co authours. Sometimes we just need time to escape.
