i am in love

i am in love
i perceive mystery strong around me
– my spirit enters a no where place
–   intensely liminal
–     lonely, transitional

i’m not afraid anymore
–  yet the bile roils in my stomach

i love endlessly
– because my heart has been broken
–   and no longer knows the bounds,
–     the limitations of love

– i’ve dropped out so far i can see back in –

i cannot tell you how alone i am
and even more i cannot
describe how alive i am

i am in love
– everyday
–   with nothing…..
…..nothing no one can see….

Thus concludes the old manuscript. I think I’ve found my way back to that place. Or maybe God led me. Only it isn’t at all lonely here. I’m in great company.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
