Dear one, isn’t it exhausting to be
keeping so very many secrets
from so very many people,
trying to navigate always in the safe zone
yet never fully feeling known, fully loved
and fully safe yourself?
Even where you seek refuge, there are secrets
about secrets, stalking you, holding you
like a thousand threads.
I wish you safe safety…
I wish you the joy of being unguarded…
I wish you to know the love you offer to others…
and I wish I could help that to happen.
