On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. It’s such a relief, I promise.
    Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

It would delight me to hear you say you're sorry.
After all these years to say how wrong you are.
To acknowledge my pain... my eternal sadness
Maybe this day will never come
Maybe this is my ultimate lesson
in forgiveness
My ultimate sacrifice
Choose joy, they say
I choose it but I'm stumbling in the dark
stepping on pieces of glass
Pain searing through my body
My only energy source.
My only heat.
My driving force.


  1. Sometimes all we want is someone to acknowledge our pain. I know what you mean by that. Pain is very real. Thanks for opening up about that. I like what you say about sacrificing and forgiving. It is not to say that it isn't hard at times.

  2. I appreciate an entry on "delight" that is not all fluff and happiness. You show difficulty and pain with emotional impact...
