I go to seek a Great Perhaps

Dear God,
Cure me of this ache, this pain of not seeing him.

someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. they can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. and whatever their reasons you must leave. because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. you never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. there is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. and there is the love that will be ready.

I’m not sad.

I’m learning to climb to the top, I’m figuring out what healing feels like when you’re still angry at those who hurt you.

I’m making something beautiful out of the pain in my gut,

I’m attacking the monsters so they shut up and die instead of invading my every thought,

we’re coming…
