Morning Offerings...

i give lie to loneliness...
i give lie to loneliness
for there is a longing still
for a heart's companion
to hold my tender heart
with compassionate love
as gently as cradling a robin's egg
to cherish both my
beautiful and ugly selves
to have and hold my
aging, aching body at the end
of a long, difficult day
to bear a share of life's
burdensome sorrows
and when i deny this
ephemeral yet deeply real dream
i give lie to loneliness...

inner healing...
i confess i shy away from those
i perceive as too needy...those who seem
to flatter and adore only to reach out

grasping claws to snatch and tear my
flesh seeking answers i cannot give,
do not have, in their vain attempt to

escape seeking answers deep within
themselves- which would mean rending
their own flesh, permitting their own hearts

to break open so healing could happen
from within.

    1. These are undeniably two of my favorites. Beautifully written. And I can resonnate with both. I know that same loneliness. And I often lie about it.
