crossed wires

it seems way too easy
to not hear the intent
but just the words

it seems way too often
that I miss a cue
and feel cut off

it seems like yesterday
that the other shoe
always dropped

waiting for the explosion
that no longer comes
I have to rewire a lifetime of trauma

one wire at a time
but once started
radiance persists

your face and eyes
and yours and yours
smiling in kindness

my heart melts

One thought on “crossed wires

Add yours
