Like a wounded heart on suicide strings
I unfold you, and let you down easy.
This precious envelope I fit in,
is covered up with lacy glue,
tepid tape and acidic postage.
I am lifted into heaven
with your clever handshake
and supple smile and I am in awe
of your workman's hands and your
I am yours.
The tension in my lips grows numb.
My feet ache in your direction.
I don’t even know you.
My fear is my love,
and my heart is awakened as once before.
I am beautiful again.
I am a boat crossing a sea, a mountain completing the scenery.
I am the sky’s grace. I can hold all the weight.
I will grow, I will blossom, I am passion, I am greed.
I am again comfortably alive!
Alive among the ruins of my dreams and again
I climb to you at the top of the stairs.
