Embrace

Standard

Layers of meaning embrace my words,

Keeping my spirit warm,

From menacing bleakness,

My soul gives them form.

 

Sensual metaphors woven,

From a lifetime of living,

Sing broken ballads,

Songs of forgiving.

 

Healing often means

Allowing the self to break,

Tears to heal,

Poetry to awake.

 

There is beauty in brokenness,

Through the fissures of humility,

Seep the verses of grace,

Divine tranquility.

  1. This is beautiful, I was picking favourite lines as I read but then there were too many. Very soothing somehow, it captures that feeling of an inner stillness and calm deep down, despite the mess on the surface. Loved it:-)
