Missed your poetry. The images here are strong and speak for themselves, and the last three words are something one can relate to as well. I wonder if we can more adequately admit we are in denial, in words, but when we are having to face ourselves in reality and live... well, it can be much harder. The "starved of ink" says it all, especially when we are hurting and we can't find the strength and energy to possibly express everything accurately. Admire and appreciate your honesty as always, and the way you write the heaviness of what you feel. It's not easy, sending all the best to you.
