More so when I found out starfish mouths are in the centre of the underside 😉💚 LikeLiked by 1 person 😂😂 Shame mermen don’t quite have the same appeal 😉🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person No. I don’t think the starfish would stick as well 🤔💚 LikeLiked by 1 person Not up top anyway 🤪😉🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person I hope this is a fictional you speaking; I’m sorry but a very close friend attempted suicide last week and was almost successful 😦 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m sorry to read that John. A very difficult situation I’m sure. This was one I’d written sometime ago when my overarching mood was a little more bleak. I’d never post any suicidal ideation poems in real time as I know they can trigger / upset people. I find one of the ways for me to work through my darker periods is to write about them. It can help me to order my thoughts more when I see them on the page. I hope everything works out for your friend. A lot of people have struggled during recent times. Thank you for checking in with me. That means a lot 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m so glad to hear that. I was worried. My friend is doing all right though his financial troubles which triggered the episode remain. There is the problem of that scar around his neck but hopefully that will fade LikeLiked by 1 person I’m sorry for worrying you. That was certainly not my intention. I’ll be fine. With regards to your friend – scars may fade but support from friends will mean everything 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person We’ll all meet in the sea, one day.
