.◊ __DEAR WIFE,_____________« It's so hard, my love, to say it to you out loud. ».
Show me who I am and who I could be. Initiate the heart within me, 'til it opens properly. Slow down, start again from the beginning. I can't keep my head from spinning out of control. Is this what being vulnerable feels like? And I will try to breathe, 'til it turns to muscle memory. I'm only steady on my knees, one day I'll stand on my own two feet. And I'll run the risk of being intimate with brokenness, through this magnifying glass I see a thousand finger prints on the surfaces of who I am. Show me, where to find a silver lining as the mercury keeps rising 'til the glass on my fever breaks. Show me how to struggle gracefully, let the scaffolding inside of me be strong enough to hold this tired body up, once more. And I will try to breathe 'til it turns to muscle memory.
