The Embrace

Lost to me

in this instant,

that I swore a savior

came in,

resplendent,

and obvious.

 

This was my

first and only

experience.

Everything before

had been

running

and hiding,

screaming

and crying.

Wondering

if there was something more.

 

Now it is here,

and I must face it.

Atrocity

is handed down.

Father to son,

the bitter poison.

 

Sometimes,

we have ghosts

in our blood,

and demons in our heads.

Constantly disapproving,

and lurking

on sleepless nights

to devour us.

 

Before I could

crawl away,

something

cracked me open,

like an egg,

and all that

warm inside

came back to me.

 

I have never been

like that

before.

 

Close

to the Creator.

Close to

whatever Love is.

I have never

recreated

the greatest thing

I have ever known.

Humbling.

Amazing.

Save me.
