Longing

You have wrapped
your desires
in an invisible shroud
of your longing
under layers
of regret
hidden tightly with
all your losses
shame and pain

Your hooded
vulnerability now
buffered from the wind
forges ahead
missing someone
you have never met

Winter is
your safest season
skate over
the lake of frozen tears
stay on the edges
of your longing
near the guarded trees
and the reliable rocks
keep your eyes ahead
ignore the signs
that scream you are
beloved

the thaw will come
the cycle will complete
nothing is lost
when you let it go
