A post shared by Sula (@sulaskimmingstones) on

I love people, enjoy company and delight in stimulating conversation.  None the less family time over the festive season, no matter who with tends to rattle me.  It’s really hard being in other peoples homes, not wanting to feel underfoot or do anything that will irritate my hosts and having no head space.  It doesn’t take me long to start feeling like all my nerve endings are a bit raw.

CLAUSTROPHOBIA

Jostling souls

in crowded spaces

Too many eyes

In inscrutable faces

Too many words to read between

Too many hurts

unseen

Too many locks

without keys

Too much effort

trying to please
