One Love.

my body was made
literally
to receive you

a mere distant glimpse or thought of you
drops me high
and humbled

in a rush of knowing that i am of the stars
and weighted in the arms of this earth
and that both are in your embrace

i’m grateful that i have found you
or rather that i have remembered you

you’ve ignited my insides
to be able to feel all of me
every repressed corner

i recognize you
and remember now
Who I Am
i see and recognize myself
reflected in your eyes

in your boundless revelation
you have stirred to the surface
lifetimes and heritages of forgotten
abuses
losses
injustices
deaths
imbalances
fears
denials
and so many forms and manifestations
of codependent chains

this love between us has shined its light into all these dark and shameful places
this light between us has held and loved and raised these creatures to their potential in this world
this love and light has revealed Divine and mysterious plans

i live here on my knees in gratitude and in awe

waiting for
and acting on
guidance to serve this great creation

i’m ready to receive these gifts of love
and these gifts of fear, to raise them in the light

there is nothing i cannot face when i know your light within me
there is no darkness
i cannot light or embrace

there is no fear, distance, or death
that can trick me
into an illusion of separation from you

in your light i’m not able to judge myself
because i am you
perfect and complete

i am ready to face those who challenge this peace within
as forgotten parts
unloved and in need of healing within me

as the wounds inside me reveal themselves to me in the faces of those i judge
so too does my internal healing bring greater healing to the faces of this world

it was once scary to feel the boundlessness
of my love for you
because i knew that it was beyond
any behavior, action, or embodiment
that this earthly mind could contain
define
or understand

i knew that within my old love paradigm it would hurt
it would not fit in the conditions we place on people
or within the conditions we place on what we called “love”
as it was
bound, trapped, and blind in denial
and in rejection of the whole self

and so it hurt
it broke me
until these old paradigms died

one by one

how i grieved over this history
over these attachments
over the death of my ego
and the life and values i once carried
proudly

and from these broken walls
i became
peace
freedom
and boundless unconditional love
that could finally live and breathe and speak and know life

as it was once screaming from within self-imposed walls
to be touched and received holistically in this light

our light
that is one love
