Poetry

This is the way in;
to one who often
seems alone
and cold,

Not meant for
deep refinement
in this world,

Or mirrored stars
that shine upon
the soul.

This is the way in;
to kiss the truth
you could not
taste before,

to run with
open heart though
you…

A poem of compassion

Photo by pawel szvmanski on Unsplash

It is hard to free
the grown-up child
strapped in a body
full of pain,

Or overturn
a song
that isn’t over
Long dark nights
A lonely face.

It is hard to heal
a tired spirit
that denies
all it
creates,

When you try
to love
beyond the lies
You still find
ugliness…

This is where
we smile again
On velvet green
A long kindness.

Remember us
All things we vowed
if you feel strong
or you fall
down.

We have shown
such gentleness
on strings of hope
Our endless
kiss

that stays
within
one ancient
soul,

Why you
made my life
remains
in…
