Letter to a soul in shadow…


deep breaths, friend,
let this moment be your ally,
a solitary thought,
in the middle of a crowded murmur.
A single pause, worth taking,
to know that you are,
you just are.

let this candle be what flickers,
in your eyes hiding,
an illusive warmth,
that peeks behind curtains,
and shelters under pillows.

deep breaths, friend,
know you are not walking,
without a hand to hold your sorrow,
a heart to bear with you,
this weight that runs you low.

let this brow be your furrow,
your ledge to seek shade,
in the blister that is life’s ache,
and the knife-edge,
that leaves you bleeding,
you need not bleed alone.

deep breaths, friend,
let this dream be your pathway,
your doorway to something warm,
green smell of grass,
and sweet smooth of wood,
embracing.

let this one thought be spoken,
in words that wind,
and shelter,
a heart that beats with fright,
and trembles,
with longing.

You are,
you just are.
