Those Who Might Say
There are those who might say
that reaching out to another
and totally opening the heart;
to show another the Truth within
is a sign of tremendous courage.
Risking all, as the defenses crumble
into a sea of emotion, we become
lost and don’t know how to defend
the marrow of heart’s walls anymore.
I could not let you just walk by,
to much had passed coincidence…
and all my instincts went into overdrive.
I lost the capacity to steer;
and perhaps you, through your pain
lost your ability to hear…just too much, too much.
I showed you my Truth, you chose someone
else’s…and thought my mixed up façade
was who I am.
I cannot convince you…you either know
or you don’t ~ but our inner instinct has
been trained to explore; to reach out,
to see and to know someone we know not.
It saddens me that you walked away thinking
of me as just another enemy – that is so what
was not intended; and the last view I have of
you is such a kind, and gentle soul, wounded
to the core and feeling so lost.
You always made me feel so very alive
when our eyes met, and your inspiration
created wings within, I lifted my heart
and I soared at the sight of you.
I recognize now that the meeting was kindred;
the love perhaps not ever meant to be,
but you have buried yourself alive in
the basement of your heart .
You will find no monster within if you look,
but you will see the tear-stained face of your soul
looking back at you, perhaps this is what you fear.
Would that I could touch away every tear
with the tender energy of a gift, as a star to
heal you; a universe to comfort you, or an
angel to protect you
My heart is now spent, and as I end this
note to you, I will ask the Lord in prayer,
be it His will…that this will reach you and bring
comfort to a soul that has known and weathered
a thousand storms.
Your friend always…
