the burden of forgiveness

Standard

Let be granted to breathe in freedom ❤❤🙏❤

House of Heart

Glistening sand pulls away

from a shore,

sparkling gems caught in the current.

Minute ecosystems inhabit

tiny tide pools in the wet sand.

Sometimes I stroll the embankment alone

indulging the realms of lovers

where there is no logic but

a crushing ache held close to

the breast.

A carapace between a heart and the

mountains where I left you.

Grant me the freedom to breathe

beneath the tender weight of hands

on eggshell.

My sigh is a gentle quake upon your

unshaven cheek.

Allow me to swim in the river of

your impossible eyes where there

is no threat of war, hard silence,

or the burden of forgiveness.
