SAVING GRACE

Some things
are better
without explanation
Lessons seen
with sudden clarity
Send me panicked
Searching for traction

I know
I’m very small
in the face of everything
It still hurts
Still stings
Stumbling messy
through everything

Let me run
if only to save face
Grant me
Quietly
Saving Grace

Like a cliff
too long exposed
to the elements
It’s job
seems
to be
as a target
wherever it juts out

Plant something green
atop of it
for me
Prove Life is still
Here / There
Sustained
in spite of any misgivings

Hold me close
if only to save face
Grant me
Reverie
Saving Grace

I’ll remember
Eternally
Dimples
Teeth
Twinkling eyes
a perfect memory
of how you softened
in the twilight
as Hope dimmed
of tethering

Intoxicant luscious
I sip softly
in my dreams
to a place of no pain
Saving Grace
