Chapter 1 – I Dared

18 May

(Then) I dared to live

And love and

Yes

To falter

I dared to dream

And hope and

Yes

Desire

I sought to fill

A gaping hole

Between myself

And what I named

Reality

It got me nothing

Save a hole

In my heart

Over you.

(Now) I dare to live

And love and yes!

To be grateful.

I dare to dream

And hope is no longer

Simply the absence of pain

Faith fills my once insatiable desire

and wisdom comes from knowing

That naming reality

Still gets me nothing.

But my heart is whole.

I’m over you.
