She Inside Me

Listen to Ivy read She Inside Me

 

does knowing She

diminish Me

and all things wished

for Me to be

?

i trapped Me

between

hope and disappointment

in She’s garden

where daisies

stretch necks to glimpse

sunbeams

penetrating

nightsorrows

neither black nor bright

atmosphere hovers

thick

wanting

hopes hurt where

disappointment lurks

in this space

inside Me

.

She watches

She waits

.

i claw earth

in search

of comfort

words to string

onto my kite

bright with bluebird yellows

and raven reds

strong and cheery as

winter’s sparrow nesting

carefree in a world

delighted by a bird’s bold

high it flies

where my kite begs to try

as I brush soil

from my blackened

fingertips

.

She watches

She waits

.

i

tie

ATTITUDE

and

CONVICTION

to

TRUST

and

FAITH

to

ME

.

i

fasten us

to my kite

while

DETERMINATION

forces me to

look She

in the eyes

.

She watches

She waits

.

does knowing She

diminish me

and all things wished

for me to be

?

of course not

.

as it has before

(and will again)

buoyancy lifts

me kiteward

.

i laugh

as Me flies

from the garden

inside

toward the future

She grooms

Me to see

.
