i swallowed the piper's call . . .

I make
a convenant with thee
I will not leave thee
nor forsake thee
banish fearful thought
uproot it from invading good dirt
you are the jagged and ready
the torn
the ripped xylem
of my original heart
perfect half tare
come back to me
quelling haunting separations sorrows
my existence marked time
without meaning
years of suffering half life
a broken circuit
rewired
you startled me
surprised me
washed me in general
then bathed me with commanding tenderness
softening the crust of an unfinished healing
a wound in suspended animation
I looked into the eyes of your voice
calling me from half death
waking back into my life
I let your sweetness seep into the gaping cracks . . .
and then
and then
I swallowed the piper’s call
lifted my eyes to leap and fall
and line by note
the weavings
knit me back by rote
a throwaway raggedy andy doll
stitched back into a royal woven tapestry
and whatever you do
whatever you chose
I will not leave
nor forsake thee
I make a convenant
with thee
this wholeness now as a seamless circle
the quiet home of hands
will guard your place of peace
forever
because you see
you see
I swallowed the piper’s call
lifted my eyes to leap and fall
and found love tore down a phantom’s wall . . . .
factum est.
factum est.
factum est.

i swallowed the piper's call . . .
