praised me, as it dressed me in poetry.
Exchanged emptiness for a beautiful existence;
eyes and mind cracked open …living my true existence.
Loves’ unchained restraints,
freeing my voice that was stuck on mute;

Loves’ released echoes from the confines of my chest,
swept the doorway of my heart, preparing for its special guest.
And today I can laugh at what scorned me yesterday;
free of who I was, embraced within the shine.
Come observe me in this silence, for I am… and I am not;
a lit candle burning water,
a resurrected seeker, a metaphor; an
Alchemy of Love
