l’ enlèvement


I think you might have died

whilst I wasn’t looking

probably consumed in that singular modern way

with nothing

in a few years time I will still not remember what

removed from me the importance

of remaining

watchful for your return

  1. This . . . I hope I never know what this feels like. Passion or being passionate is such a big part of who I am.

    The beginning is a killer opening and the poem speaks volumes. There’s a sadness that lingers in the lines as well. Well done, Candice. *Big hugs*

  2. I wanted to say I LOVE that photo of you in the blue tshirt but comments were closed by the time my SLOW ASS got there. And I love the image you have used on your actual webpage. Of the women. Just wonderful work.

  3. Thank you, Dear Heart! The image is one I use across the board: in ACG on Medium and our page via Twitter too. I think it’s such a powerful image.
