• Pam Heighway commented on the post, spilled 6 years, 4 months ago

    The contents of her heart, lay strewn upon the table
    she tried to gather them up, the best that she was able

    meanwhile…
    the contents of her purse were laying on the floor
    she didn’t try to pick them up, she didn’t need them anymore.

  • if only they could see themselves
    like I see them
    if only they could love themselves
    as I love them
    if only they could be themselves
    peak out from behind the mask
    all I ask
    all I ask
    so simple a task
    yet…
    alas

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, forth 6 years, 12 months ago

    Go forth and be open to what the wolrd has to teach you. You’ll want to ignore it. Being in a human body is tiring…especially when what you think should be happening isn’t what’s happening. It sometimes seems easier to block it all out. Sometimes you’ll get so good at it you’ll forget…
    Don’t forget.
    Go forth and let love come through…[Read more]

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, teeth 6 years, 12 months ago

    something wasn’t quite right
    she kept combing her hair with the teethless comb
    but her hair was still a mess
    knowing that combing is what one does with a comb
    she continued
    completely perplexed

  • “I don’t need anyone’s approval,” she typed as her status update into the rectangular box that was all too familiar. Then she waited…(while checking her pink hair in the mirror and painting her nails that colour […]

  • okay
    very funny
    who put me here
    in this body
    on this planet
    in this life
    and totally didn’t give me the book of instructions….

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, patrol 7 years, 3 months ago

    patrolling far
    patrolling wide
    intuition be my guide
    but this ancient skill
    creeps people out
    filled with mistrust
    and self doubt
    so instead
    we shut it down
    so filled with fear
    aren’t we darn clowns!

  • (to be sung in the tune of a late night drinking song:)

    She lay there in the minefield
    her body strewn apart
    it was hard to get the stretcher in
    everything was torn apart
    blood was oozing everywhere
    lives […]

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, sonar 7 years, 3 months ago

    staring at the screen for salvation
    facebook is the sonar for the nation
    closed eyes
    open thighs
    not enough “whys”
    not enough…Wise.

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, turbine 7 years, 3 months ago

    Turbine spinning in my mind
    always wondering what I’d find
    If for a moment it ceased to spin
    what forbidden thoughts might enter in
    So I used to stand right in the breeze
    amidst the bending of the […]

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, crust 7 years, 3 months ago

    look beyond my outer crust
    and you’ll see a burning core
    nearly forgotten
    under layers of rock
    and artifacts
    oh shit
    here comes an archealogist
    i hope they have a fire extinguisher!

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, jelly 7 years, 4 months ago

    hot meets cold
    liquid meets mold
    how can an emotion
    cause such a great commotion
    be still
    my jelly filled
    heart…

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, cap 7 years, 4 months ago

    with a quiet fizz
    at first
    almost unnoticable
    at least unrecognizable
    the cap came off of the bottle that had been sitting in the top shelf of the closet for years
    The cap
    that had been put on so […]

    “Is there truly such a thing as a fact?” she asked, her eyebrow slightly raised.

  • Pam Heighway commented on the post, insect 7 years, 5 months ago

    insect
    often overlooked
    delicate details often missed
    frequently stepped on in people’s haste
    to be
    somewhere
    else
    so sad
