Help me heal.
Help me ascend. Help me release this weight. Lift me gently, like a feather, rising and swooping and swirling in space. Caress me with your light and energy, kiss me with your unconditional love and kindness. Let your touch ease my aching soul, your fingertips wash away the past.
Give me your shoulder to rest on, your chest to sink into. Float with me, rise with me, fall with me. Wrap yourself around me and never let me go. Give me safety. Offer me protection. Tell me everything will be alright. Cover me with your compassion.
Lead me home. Point the way. Hold the lantern. Take my hand and reassure me that I’m not alone. Walk with me, side by side. Be with me, through the darkness. Celebrate with me when we reach the light. Look me in the eye and see me. Really see me. Download me, breathe me in, know me. Feel me…every part of me.
Love me anyway.
Let me give to you. Give me a space to open my heart and finally say all the things it’s been screaming to unleash. Let me know it’s okay to say these things, to speak my truth, to become vulnerable. Create trust so that I can finally begin to heal and grow and become the person I’ve been protecting inside.
Pick me up when I collapse beneath the weight and subsequent release of a lifetime of trying to be someone else. See the real me with naked eyes…I hope I don’t blind you. I hope the explosion isn’t too much for you to handle. I hope you’re strong enough to handle the universe that I’m revealing to you…and only you.
I hope you’re so overcome with love and awe at what I’ve been withholding that it takes everything within your being not to embrace me, not to gather me up, not to cradle me. I hope you want to simultaneously consume me and un-cage me.
I want to envelope you in the light that envelopes me. I want to give and give and give and finally learn how to receive. I want to open myself to all of myself…and then all of you. I want to build such a strong foundation in my belly that nothing will ever shake me. I will never know fear again. I will walk through the darkness and be the light at the end of the tunnel.
And I want you there too. I want your light to shine and blind me. I want to dive into this union, this energy, this love…but never lose myself. Never again. I want to become one half of an even more radiant whole. I want to know what an equal partnership feels like…equal in love, in connection, in emotion, in intellect.
Equal in dedication and trust.
I want to know you so that I may know myself more. I can feel you, just behind the mirror…reaching through the looking glass towards the more authentic set of eyes on the other side.
I am you. You are me. Let’s wade through the murky waters, illuminating the depths…and finally consummate this homecoming.
