Read introduction

Poem with much emotional pain.

Closing Act

Imageby Damian Garside02 Mar 2014


When I
closed my heart
I thought it
would be like shutting
a bank vault, huge
steel doors with
an airtight seal.

But no;
so wrong; it
was like
dropping a curtain or
a bamboo blind

the light still filters in a little
from a world now
unseen to me.
