Rooted in gaps

I push away
Wanting to be pulled
I shy away
Wanting to be sought
I turn away
Wanting to be caught

I yearn alone

I yearn alone

But I assume you know

The gaps they fill with silence
And wayward thoughts,
they cloud
The reality that you have made

I am grateful but selfish
wanted but needy
Loved but insecure

I realize….but will I reach?

    I have lain in silence
    and stared out into the ink
    the darkness held me
    as I dreamed for light
    In my head I knew of hope
    but my heart-
    so stubborn a heart,
    it was weak
    and did not know much of my head.
    I felt my need
    but did not feel I deserved to have it filled
    and so I waited in darkness
    and felt the weight
    of being
    alone.
    I hear through the distance
    words of a kind God
    and I hear the calls of friends
    and now I must speak to my heart
    and tell it of my head
    and all the words that have come to me.
    I pray that you are sought
    and caught
    and not alone.
    We feel a thing
    so strong to death
    and our emotions
    have a weight
    but let us feel one happy truth
    a washing of the slate.
    Let gratefulness sink in
    even deeper.
