some new ones....

a friend inspired me today.......
her and her beautiful heart.......


salt

taking you past wall after wall,
carrying you beyond the protections
and the hiding places,
it washes you into the open -
to the space of healing and love.
it's a river you must dare to ride
if you ever really want to live.
it begins with a tear,
your tasting of its salt,
and your trusting another to taste that salt with you.
>>>>>>>>>

a whisper

only a whisper came out.
all the screaming inside of me,
and only a whisper came out -
barely showing you the depths -
but at least cracking the door.
i prayed you'd see the opening and enter.
i prayed you'd see me and trust.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>

In the corner

unsure i hesitate,
wanting to love you, i don't know how.
you leave me standing in the corner.
filling the corner with light and beckoning you closer,
i wait.
>>>>>>>>>>>

picking it up

picking it up after you dropped it,
i held it for you over here -
your belief in yourself.
your trust in the process.
your acceptance of who you are.
your knowing of your beauty.
holding it and waiting, i smile your way and love you.
