KEEP IT REAL


24 April, 2019

‘Keep it real, Let it come from the heart’

Lay the hard words and conflict down

to the ears that need the hearing

~

Lead with the chalice of your heart 

Make kindness the way 

of uncomfortable truths

~

Even in the stun of betrayal 

What needs saying must get said

There is not a way around some hurts 

~

They come with an unexpected pierce

In the why would you confront That

In the who made you the righteous one

~

Coming at it from the backdoor

Makes no comfort for the giver or receiver

Not even a gentle knock at the front door

~

Gives ease to what rises to be said

Trust leaves the Doors open for entrance

The ‘real’ might lock the door for awhile

~

Action gives consequences

To the heart of it in the lay down

In the need for what needs saying

~

Keep it real, Let it come from the Heart

Doubt will not be your friend

Lead with Love.

~

It happened just like this

30 years of a good-enough life together brought to closure

A note of declaration of a love affair too precious to end

All that settles in the empty spaces of you is your suffocating scent

~

30 years of a good-enough life together brought to closure

No conversation, no apology, no clue of this kind of failure

All that settles in the empty space of you is your suffocating scent

Adult children stunned into silence’s rise to rage

~

No conversation, no apology, no clue of this kind of failure

Getting by for decades on the emptiness of generalities, and daily tasks

Adult children stunned into silence’s rise to rage

Betrayal and hurt seeking answers to unspoken questions

~

Getting by for decades on the emptiness of generalities, and daily tasks

Talk and intimacy to be taken care of later, later, maybe tomorrow

Betrayal and hurt seeking answers to unspoken questions

Your gone is well gone and lost to any translation

~

Talk and intimacy to be taken care of later, later, maybe tomorrow

Today brought not even a goodbye in your completion

Your gone is well gone and lost to any translation

Amazing how the sense of relief comes with the ‘glad-you’re-finally-gone.’

~

Today brought not even a goodbye in your completion

It’s a wonder that the signs weren’t more obvious except between the sheets

Amazing how the sense of relief comes with the ‘glad-you’re-finally-gone.’

What you don’t know till you do

~

It’s a wonder that signs weren’t more obvious except between the sheets

A note of declaration of a love affair to precious to end

What you don’t know till you do

It happened just like this
