Poem by Joni Soule


I told you when I give you a compliment
To look into my eyes 
So I know you received it
That you have taken it in
And cuddled me
And nurtured me 
Because I gave you that love
So you would love me back
So I would know what love means
If you would look me in the eyes
And you saw me and believed in me
You acknowledged me for all I am
From beginning to end
I am not in this moment
I breathe a sigh of relief
As I speak to myself
For the millionth time
On this earth alone and in pain
that I will seek out a new life
That moves me toward a new day
A new fucking day a brilliance
Engulfs my being into the light
I will call it time for now

Joni Soule
