The offer stands

Like a sentinel

Well.. maybe I could give you room enough to breathe

So you might find the answers

To my avalanche of questions

Somewhere within

In time

Time is suspended for me

Minutes are endless

Hours are years

Hence my urgency

My fear it’ll all slip away from me

Into eternity


Still.. I can see

I’m grasping again

Reaching for you like a raft in a storm

The way I do

Writhing in the grief

Waves crashing over me

Flinging me around my emotions

Like a rag doll with nothing to hold onto

Not fair to you

You didn’t agree to be that for me

I only wanted you to

But, that’s not up to me

I slip sometimes

Search outside myself

That’s the wrong direction

It’s hard to remember in times like these

I have everything inside that I will ever need


Now to find my place of surrender

To the ocean of confusion

The paradox of it all

The well of darkness inside my light

And the light inside my darkness

To the ache on either side of loss and love

Tangled up between desire and dismay

Stringing myself over a chasm

Of not knowing which way

To turn

To the truth that she’s gone

And, we live on

But, that you may not be ready for me yet (or ever)

To the truth that I have no control

Over outcomes

But, that somewhere inside this deep, dark pain

Beauty still remains

I’m here

In the space between

With battered heart in hand

The offer stands

Always 💋
