on the other side of the world
you must awaken in joy
state of grace that comes
so easy for you.

here itís hard to wipe sleep from eyes
muster all it takes to pretend pain
condemnationís toll
is not hard for me.

last night we danced and you held me
as I cried tears Iíve been holding
until tide of joy
rolled in for us both.

this morning I know: itís just a dream
I practice smiling in mirror
until desert ache
cracks my heart, my face.

yesterday I believed your words
your insistence that hope prevails
on darkest of days
rays of love break through.

tomorrow you will understand
my inexplicable failure
to thrive. See how storm,
love, swallowed me whole?

from inside of love one has no
choice but to embrace suffering
look for openings
but die if one must.

from outside of love there is no
question Ė success demands closing
bend not to loveís folly
live like kings and laugh.

Awww, Dawn! I can so relate to this write of yours. Now to find an oasis in this desert where love seems so elusive (at least the one we seek). Love and peace to you. Regis
