Thank you for hurting me, misunderstanding me, vilifying me, teasing me and leaving me. Thank you so much for being just who you were at the perfect time in my life.
It is because of your role in my life that I am stronger.
It is because of your lack of compassion that my own compassion grew and that I can extend you kindness.
It is because you were closed off that I decided not to shutdown and instead I chose to open more.
It is because you teased me and bullied me so ruthlessly that I learned how to accept and embrace ALL people, with no prejudice.
It is because of your attempt to silence me that I learned how to have my voice and speak my truth.
My courage and I found each little by little.
Then we courted each other…
Then we took the plunge…
Until one day it became a holy marriage and then it was game fucking on.
Courage and I are now married for life and it is a holy and sacred union.
there was just you.
You in your nothingness.
You in your completeness.
In your darkness.
In your light.
There was only you.
I lie and gaze at the midnight sky.
I feel your quiet darkness
and see all your bright spots.
I dance to your waves and melt in your heat.
I bear witness to your rage and your unencumbered joy.
I revel in your rays of sunshine
and swim into yours storms.
Your heart, the size of the moon,
shines brightly on the wounds
of my humanness.
