Grieving the dream,
Slowly letting go of all that desire entails
left dazed by the choices and circumstances
that led to this moment.
Craving connection, to be seen
for all I am
at the deepest levels,
not only by my own eyes,
but by another with whom I can once again share
the delicacies of life’s more sacred commitments.
But only when clarity and integrity return to my heart
And sweep away the fear of losing this all over again…
