Facing yourself

 Love’s contrasting addiction


Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, softly, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Hush now sweet one, let quiet, let quiet, let self trust apprehend you.


I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.





Whisper secretes, I whisper, emotional heat pours from my breath,







feel, feel, feel, your own special depth.








Your scars, your scars are part of what you are.







All of your fears throughout all of your years, LIE, they lie, they have lied.







The colors that you are, crystal sapphires, jade, ebony, turquoise, the bright, the white bright light of a star.








You must then know they were created from blue flame burning,







and cold, heartless cold, insane cold, mindless cold,






darkest black dark, the dark darkness the darkest.








On hands and knees desperately, my God!, crawling aimlessly in all directions,




within your escaping, tears of compassion slowly drip onto your reflection.







Inside your living experience, your pain underlines the hell you have endured, the insight you have procured, the piece of mind you have secured,







from love’s contrasting addiction.
