Paper Cut

The wind picks up my life
on pages made from rag
My secrets and my thoughts
hidden in a plastic bag
But now they’ve blown away
it’s time to start anew
I want to be free of my past
I want to be free of YOU

Most of my writing is auto-biographical.
I wrote to rid myself of the ‘rubbish’ in my life, I found it extremely cathartic. I called these early pieces “C’est le Vie!”
For many years I hid them away until a dear friend on RB convinced me to publish them here – for that I will always be so grateful.

    Rebecca short and simple but the message needs to uncomplicated when it means being heart free me thinks. Very cathartic me thinks when your words are imposed on our challenge image :O)

  • Thank you very much, I hope that I captured the essence of the image {hug} XX
