The Secret of love is to behold it

not own it

let it flame

through the pain

wander in the night

stretching out your arms open

letting it in

then watching it go


outward to others



add in the tenderness of words

a hug, handshake, or warm embrace

without stipulations

let your boundaries fall

give in to the connections

once severed


it’s all around us

each one of us

if not

Your left in the dark

of an empty heart.
