Birds

Close your eyes
and take flight
with me
to leave my heavy heart,
my heavy body
filled with pain
Like birds we soar
in endless skies
of possibilities
to see again
beyond the earth

And when my own skin
calls me back,
my beating heart
seeks its owner
and her beloved
and we land together
back in the home
of the body, of the heart
where you belong with me,
then please keep reminding me
of the birds that we are
and that whatever it is
it is safe to feel
