From a Picture

Happiness drips from my fingertips
Like ink from an endless well
Writing my life’s story in my mind
A constant internal dialogue flows

A picture of you reminds me
Life is about experience and smiles and laughter
You are a virus, a contagion of what’s missing from my life
Inside I feel your humble nature and generosity

It has all become a burden of want and need
Simultaneously collecting and pooling around me, flooding my emotions
Even though I’m drowning, I ask for more
Your being here is killing my ego and setting me free

I can become; and go beyond
Growing like ivy on brick, climbing towards the center of the sun
Ripping through my tired and warn flesh, ready to be once again, reborn
I am silhouetted against a warming light of fresh beginning
