Love Is

Echo and the Narcissistic Leader

We seem to be predisposed to choose as leaders; the physically attractive, the charming and the seemingly self-confident. Many times, however, these outwardly physical qualities mask latent traits of self-absorption, egotism and the potential for oppressiveness and the misuse of power. Wherever this genre of leadership is unveiled it can be categorized as Narcissistic Leadership.…

Sometimes people with whom you work gaze right past; refusing to acknowledge you

The Gaze

The Gaze Darkly Colored eyes seeing Yet unseeing Refuses to acknowledge me What we’ve been What I have been Who I am Just like that. My questioning gaze Sneaks under your skin Our eyes meet Mine questions Yours fall Yours give no answers Refusing to answer In refusing to answer You deny me…

It’s My Dream Not Yours

Dreams Dreams I live your dreams, And, oh, how I want to live mine. Your dreams are not as sublime, are not easy on the span of my mind. Dreams, scientific, methodical, incongruous weighty dreams— your anchored and balanced dreams sure don’t fit in with mine. Dreams mirror the truer self. My dreams are light…

The Penitent 2

pic by eunice lituans The Penitent (2004) My God, I relent. What did I not do right? Which t’s did I not cross? Which i’s left I undotted? Was I too haughty, ambitious, proud? Please tell me, Lord. I might have erred in ignorance. For my errors I want to atone, so that the pain…

Scripting

Sometimes life and love comes with painful, shaping disappointments. However we can idealize away from pain into resilience and strength. This is an excerpt from the opening poem "Scripting" found in my book Splendor from Ashes https://www.amazon.com/Splendor-Ashes-Emergence-Ingrid-Rizzolo/dp/1491716592/ref

She became pregnant in adolescence, a victim of a trusted adult.  Like, Persephone another maiden was snatched from innocence by a death inflicting figure.

Persephone and the Death Inflicting Figure

I use the words of the famous poet William Blake to inspire hope in all such victims: "Little Lamb God bless thee"She became pregnant in adolescence, a victim of a trusted adult. Like Persephone another maiden was snatched from innocence by a death inflicting figure. Was she another victim doomed to become a prisoner of…

I Did Not Know

The issue of child abuse is a remote phenomena until it comes home to roost . When it happened to a childhood friend’s daughter the remoteness of the phenomena evaporated, and it hurt like crazy. My pain gave birth to this poem, "I Did not Know". I Did Not Know (2013) I confess I…

I Don’t Break, I Bend

I Don’t Break; I Bend Just where you broke her, that’s where she did grow, herself for to know. Just where you finished her, there she famously died, but her eyes opened wide. First cowering and stumbling, she learned to stymie fear. Then rising from her tomb of clay, her truth she came…

The Returning Soldier

The Returning Soldier Many a time we face the battle of life like untried soldiers. And, like untried soldiers we are never fully prepared for the sometimes-dramatic consequences of warfare. Then when we confront life’s amoral demands for conformism we become stunned like deer caught in the headlights. But having taken institutional vows we feel…

Crossroads

Crosswords When you face your truth then writing becomes self revelatory and hence a painful experience. Ultimately, you resolve the matter by admitting that it was your truth at the time, but you have grown away from that once held position and are continuously evolving towards an elevated plane. I share with you my poem…

“So then one could infer that the storyteller/ writer is the conscience of the people” ....“Conscience is the faculty which warns you that you’re doing something wrong — or neglecting to do something right

The Writer as Conscience

The Writer as Conscience Last week I posed this question to my students: “What is the role of the writer in society?” One particularly bright student said. “The role of the writer is to inform upper class people of what is going on in society so that they could bring change”. I restated the student’s…

My poem "Dreams" from my book Splendor from Ashes     Dreams (2013)    I live your dreams, and, oh, how I want to live mine.

Owning Our  Dreams

We all have the right to chart and navigate the course of our own lives. We have the right to choose our independent course and not always be expected to sacrifice our needs and emotional well being for the security of others. Sometimes we may have to choose to break with that which stifles…

The Abyss

The poem; The Abyss reflects the impact of domestic violence on the psyche of the victim. And, although this happened years ago I can recall the impact as if it were yesterday. However, writing provides catharsis and further healing for me and I hope it will do the same for other hurting people. The Abyss…
