the obsessive thinker
inside of you.
move beyond the one
whose worries are endless.
you are not just going to be fine —
you are going to be fully alive
dancing inside every single cell
of the earth-mud and
moon-drenched sky.
You will become a wine
inside our cups
and the warmth that pulls
lovers together —
and when we say your name
our lips touch each other
and we shiver with delight.
You become a hidden treasure
that makes us kind again
and the glory and the glow
we wear when our garments
fall away.
