Control

Control.

Lack of it.

Need for it.

Flight from it.

Control.

There will always be

hunger

for freedom.

Darling and Broken

Darling and broken:

spinning a circle

of light and dark.

Darling

is to be all that we wish to be.

Broken

is to be all that we choose to deny.

Darling and broken.

Balance.

Darling and broken.

Human.

Whole

I see you there,

squinting at the mirror

of not good enough.

And I wonder if you know

the beautiful creases on the face of you

make up the whole.

And you think,

somehow,

that you are flawed.

Because you have been angry?

Because you have been sad?

Because you have been confused,

or not there,

or completely off the path of ‘neat and tidy’ days.

You must know this.

You are as you should be.

Here, where the path is overgrown.

Where the light is brighter and the shadows darker.

You belong here. Perfectly imperfect.

Just as you were always meant to be:

whole.

Harmony

Dark into light.

Day into night.

The contrasts of a woman

swirl within the delicate human picture frame of me.

And I wonder if day and night will ever find each other in perfect harmony within.
