sparrows and broken wings

I would be intimate with you,
and know your soul
but you dance away on gossamer wings
to protect your heart

Let my arms enfold you
and still your fears
we will gently sway from side to side
in this dance of life

I will release you
and shed a tear
when you are strong and trust in love
without regret

Too passive… lets try again…

Let me love you,
and know your soul
but you dance away on gossamer wings
to protect your heart

My arms enfold you
and still your fears
we gently sway from side to side
in this dance of life

I will release you
and shed a tear
when you are strong and trust in love
without regret

    As a poet fan myself I love your use of poetry (and other lit) as a means of self-expression during this difficult phase in your life. I hope I’m not sticking my own feelings and responses too far in when I wonder if Hughes’ “Dreams” might also go with this one. It’s not a love poem, but it does express how pivotal it is to hold on to our most positive hopes and to never let those dreams die. Perhaps it might speak to you?

    “Hold fast dreams
    For if dreams die
    Life is a broken winged bird
    That cannot fly

    Hold fast to dreams
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow.”

    It is our job, all together, to support those suffering, and to not let their dreams become broken-winged birds that cannot fly. That is, if you will let us.
    Best wishes for health and for joy in creativity, Candida
