Dreams Twist Away

I saw you today.
Walking the other way
across the street
nearly raised my hand
to call out for you to stop..
Let it fall
for it had been so long
too long
that bridge burned
while I danced in the shoals
maniacal grin
slid into place.
Easier to pretend
know you not
see you not
claim you not
better this way
east
west
sunrise
sunset
neither met.
Tears gathered
clinging to lashes
unwilling
unable
determined to fall.
Far enough you were
I turned to glimpse
once more
the man grown
from the boy I knew
who with sweet kisses
promised me eternity..

Picture is my Own

Forgiveness is Not ours To Give

Vast space
surround me;
above
crystalline blue
dotted white
clouds
soft
able to hold a baby
while an adult does plunge
straight through
right down to the other side.
Beneath
scorched earth
barren
scarred with brutal past
history taken
rewritten
in the face of only one.
I lay
ear pressed
listening
hearing
muted cries
reaching…..
for rest
reaching….
for justice
reaching…..
for home once more.
Tears
beneath cheek
green blooms
giggles heard
gentle caress…..
‘Finally we can rest.’
