Ups & Downs


The beginning of October was the most delightful time I have had in a long while. Precious memories to be cherished.

They are now locked away. Have I lost the key?

It’s Diwali today.
But, something has been switched off inside. All those lights and not a spark, not even a dying ember is reaching  through to me.

It’s black. Sooty black. Thick and smothering.
All my happy thoughts are in a lead chamber I can’t get inside. I have been hammering at its door for so long, all that remains is a dull ache.
