THELXIEPEIA Siren’s Song, Poems 2009-2012
Thelxiepeia called to him through the night.
Her voice surged in the waves,
his ship rocked in the current of the sound of her song.
He would do anything to reach her.

This True Heart
In the fall of 2008, after years of continuous stress and battling physical illness,
I suffered a catastrophic nervous breakdown.
In the preceding years, from 2005 to 2008, while coping with tremendous grief,
and fearing that I was once again being stalked, I wrote thirty-nine poems.
Fear. Illness. Betrayal. Death. Resurrection. Survival. Love. Courage. Faith. Salvation.
These are the courageous poems of Winsome Vein.
You can read these here.
