My Body Was a Temple.

Extracts from this document...


Original Writing 2 My Body Was a Temple Saying goodbye to something that never arrived is always difficult, but I'm beginning to learn that it doesn't always have to be impossible. Why is new life so beautiful and death so putrid? I have never been a believer of superstition, so how can it be that all was ordained not to be from the word go, how can it be that all the time I was doing my best and watching my step, I didn't feel fate's hand on my shoulder, destiny's voice resonating in my ear drums, bad luck's shiver down my spine.

There is no easy way to let you rest, to let my broken heart mend, to let me find security as the days and weeks elapse, and every time I fall asleep, every time I awake to the thought of your smile, I know that time does not heal, but it does provide distance from my loss. ...read more.
