Poem: “Where Am I Now?”

Vulnerable
At risk of rejection
Dared to try
Love again

Enjoyed the journey
Somehow it swerved
A sudden demotion
Abject emotion

On the brink of pain
Almost ashamed
Some patterns the same
Each holding blame

Damn heart of mine
This is going to hurt
No speeding through pain
Only slow and steady works

Self-exploration
Required rejuvenation
Many lessons inherent
Return to the sacred

What was loved is lost
And I remain
Mindful
Thoughtful
Hopeful
To love and be loved again
