Famished heart


Crusted at the edges


Dry Autumn leaf






                            Empty nest,


throbbing, tightened

Rasping, gasping,


And I don’t know why.


Clear blue sky

                           A patch in the window


Flowing by the tide


Built inside

              Of my mind


Smashes through the wall



Filling up my heart


        Until it’s bursting


                   At the seams


Love came as rain


  Sweeping crust


                And dust

From my soul.


I’m alive,


once again,



                  I’m alive!
