A Frightened Mother's Lovesong
rating: +13+x

In dreams
I am dying.
When I
awake,
it’s left me bruised all
down
my
spine.
My girl is crying.

We are
blessedly
alone.

The ocean waves lap against
the stilts,
shlop, shlop, shlop,
and out my window
all I see is the sea. There is
no shore today,
only the rolling, ever moving tide,
washing our feet
in its cleansing waters.
My heart
swells,
for the first time
in a long time
full and unbroken
in God.

(amen.)
