The path to love

What do you see

When you look at tomorrow?

Do you see yourself stretched and stressed,

Pulled taught and quivering under the tension

Of someone else’s deep dark places?


I see paths

Infinite divergence

More paths than the stars

Each a choice

Where the easy ones are the hardest

And the hard ones, easy.

Life and love

Are the hardest easy choices to make

Both wild

Untamed at the start

Waiting for the lion tamer to learn her craft

But where life takes one

Love takes two


Love and life will devour you if you let them

One wrong move

One untimely blink of a hesitant eye

In a quantum leap

Life becomes pain

Love becomes hate

Claws emerge from flower petals and dew

Wavelengths of wave functions warp

And you are not where you thought you were

As you wonder how it came to this.


I want to kiss the fingernail scratches of scarlet

Once-life and un-love have left in trails down your back.



Carefully easing- releasing the tight trip wires of your heartstrings.

I will help to retame

That life, that love

That has spiraled dizzyingly

Into an abyss of regret

Reach out

My hand is strong and steady

And waiting


In the particle storm of ever changing feelings,

Safe harbor awaits

If you have the courage

To take the hardest path

To the easiest love
