House Cleaning

I wrote this awhile ago, but I read it now like it just showed up for me today fresh in from the rain letting me know that today I feel and see more demonstration of goodness from the life I am living and that I am indeed loved.

I feel this piece as if my lover were with me now as I write this intro and that I am loved, oh so deeply, for I am learning this lifetime the love I have discovered for me is quite precious… being that it ‘seems’ most of my life I lived without my personal best.

House Cleaning

He swept behind my cabinets in the kitchen
naked half way down.
his broom was like a magnet
sweeping all my lies in a dustbin made of
of his smile and his belief that I was meant just for him.
I tried to tell him I was Mafia
I kill the men that love me
equally without remorse
something to do with a father that
tried to kill my little girl

But he would have none of it.
He said,
Mon ami,
Look,
just a few particles of lost dreams
now fulfilled
Just a few crusty beliefs that you are not
good enough
all lies
as you know
the way you live now is like that of
Perserphone
you
once kidnapped and the winter of your days

began young..

but now you bring back the spring

that once never had begun!

~~~~~~~~

So then

he moved a few more dusty shelves and I watched with tears and with joy

as he saw through my ploy

he saw me

loved me

and took me in his arms and said

you are my flower

budding and new.

and …

I felt all he said

was true.
