i will always keep you safe–
wrap you up in unending arms
carefully shield you from the
demons and monsters who prey
upon you in your mind.
i will shut the door and lock
it tight– closing out those
thoughts that leave you desperate
and clinging to a structure
that is yours to crumble.
i will carefully help to unfold
your layers– peeling back those pieces
of protection that are unnecessary
with me– allowing parts of you to breathe
for the first time in a long time…
i will step back– as far back
as you wish. i will allow your
breath to flow– witness the
brilliance of your light– and move
towards you when i’m invited…
i will love you in whatever
capacity you will allow; honor
the deepest, clearest part of you
and continue to revel in your
dark and defining beauty.

yes, although sometimes, it gets exhausting! 😉 a beautiful work here!
thank you, as always, for your comment. i suppose devotion can be exhausting, unless the object of one’s devotion is similarly devoted (as i’d like to believe is the case here). 😉
