I dreamed

I was sitting among many
You pulled me up to dance

And I laughed and let the faces slide past
You drew me near and kissed my head

And I gasped, looked away
And hid my heart; 

and fled.

I’ve fought a thousand battles trying to find you, searching for some infinite desire that would anchor me to another

I found nothing and no one

Only dust. 

Just shadows full of twinkling promise,
Remnants of love; so I kept looking
And I discovered strength instead of companionship. 

Dignity instead of desire. 

Joy
in place of longing. 
And I am free of binding chains; now I search languidly, with expectation

Instead

Of desperation.
 

please don’t turn away

THERE IS A PAIN WITHIN ME THAT I CANNOT CURE THE WORLD
AND A TAUNTING, HAUNTING LAUGHTER FROM THE DARK WHERE PEOPLE HURT
I CANNOT FIX THE BROKEN, I CANNOT STEM THE FLOW
I CANNOT HALT THE BLEEDING OF THE HEARTS who have LET GO.

EACH NIGHTDARK WHISPERS HATING-THINGS THAT SIBILIANTLY SPREAD THEIR WINGS
COASTING IN ON WICKED THOUGHTS WHICH ARE ALL DISGUISED AS HARMLESS DROPS 
OF RAIN AND WIND THAT SWEEP THE SHORES
OF EVERY HEART BOUND TO IGNORE
ITS WORTH.

i love you, let me help you feel
more
than
hurt
