From the Pocket of a Dream

*The Secret Chamber*

You
have painted
my days with flowers
and opened
another
chamber in the heart
If you look inside
you
will find
the thousands of love petals
I’d never been
aware of
They
had waited
for the taste of freedom
longed to be winged
and fly
just
to rain
all over you
and make it up
for all the dark lonely nights
days of numbness
To amend
restore 
everything lost
making you forget all sorrows
making the illusion real
and fly you
home

    Love may hurt.. but it certainly knows how to heal too! And then we forget all about the hurt… isn’t that awesome!!!
    Beautiful verses… cast into a lovely shape too…

    You have painted my day with a very beautiful, meaningful and surely reproducible-in-print poem of exquisite sensitivity and insight. Thank you! Thank you!

    To open yourself to a beautiful self-knowledge and then to share it—showering it upon another—lovely poem.
