"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

The serenity of words floated
from her lips like the
summer breeze of July,
danced with blindness off of her tongue.
Uncaged and
screws loosened
there she saw the sunny sky
surrounding my eyes
when I only felt the coal miners
digging into the centers of my caving pupils.
The oceans of her caring eyes
saw the struggle that still
is painted in blackness,
bustling through my limbs.
Like old childhood videos
replaying in my mind,
the serenity of her arms wrapped
around my body calming every ounce of anxiety carved into my skin.
the tone and simplicity
of her stretching voice reaches
from the telephone wires
into my broken heart of sharp glass.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Wow. This is really amazing and wonderful. I love it. You have such a talent and greatness in you; and I hope you believe that. Because you do. Your poem is absolutely, beautiful. Thank you so much, for sharing this. Your poem has so much emotion and you and someone else. Thank you again.
