Moving Along The Path of Healing

by Joanna

My tears fall slower now
My memory has been full
Nights brimming with conversations
I try to refuse to have with you
In my mind
Darkness alluding to
A more open channel
A.M. waves do travel further
With a clear sky overhead
My heart races to keep me from explosion
A venom so fierce
Was introduced to my tongue
When I first tasted your need
You even kneeled before me
In earnest
That day in the sun in the doorway
Offering love and many things
I felt new
I felt joy
I felt a million reasons to run away
Only now
Only after the dust has settled
Do I understand that there was no running
You were placed
Like a landmine
In my path
Lessons served up aplenty
Yet the Master ended up
Blinded by the blast
