This Wound


This wound…
This wound has hurt.
I guess it needs
more love.

This wound
has stayed with me
for months
whispering my inadequacies
like bombs.

This wound
lies to me,
making me believe
I am unlovable.

Your words,
like cowardly venom,
have poisoned
my mind,
my heart,
my body.

Your actions,
your inaction
has shown me

This wound
was here
before you.

You just helped it
gape more.

There are those
who have lovingly
sucked the venom out
time after time.

Will it ever be
completely gone?


I won’t force.
What it needs here
more love
more love
more love.

And I’m not waiting
for anyone else
to bring it.

It’s right here,
right now,
from my broken open heart,
loving me.

Fall In

Maybe one day
you will realize
it’s not the end of the world
to fall in with me.

Or maybe it is.

And you will realize
Thank GOD, that world is ended.

Now the more beautiful world
can begin.

Perhaps Patience

​Perhaps patience
equals Love.


If I take care
of me,
I need not expect
of you.

You can be free.

Free to stay
and trust the Unknown
Free to love
with all your heart
and body and soul.

Free to shine.

That is my prayer.
May you shine.


I’m suspended,
in a neutral paradise,
pregnant with possibility.

Anything can happen
when one speaks the truth
from a courageous heart.

to and fro.

Happy in the middle.

Anything can happen
or nothing.
It doesn’t matter.

Anything can happen
or nothing.
I love you.
