A glimpse of light,
too bright.
Enough to silence me,
stop me, bring me back
to square one.
That place where I keep
my eyes closed,
keep secrets.
It’s not safe here, but it is
what I know.
I saw the light,
and came quickly back.
Afraid of what it would mean,
I came back to what
I know.
Here I hide.
Here I keep quiet,
And this is what I protect?
This is what I protect.
No more.
I am hell-bent on heaven.
Gently rocked.
Lovingly mocked.
Here we go.
Braving the light,
To know heaven,
To remember,
fall back,
be caught
and land where love reigns.
Here we go.
