Nothing to begin with
I was born naked from all religions but your love

care if you are you and I am I. I am not some exotic flower.
Whatever coat you have on, I will put it on to warm me... and
the shoes however small... I will walk in them to balance our
height difference. You don‚t need to convert for me;
I have already converted to you. You see I never had a religion
to begin with. I was born naked from all religions but your
I know that was not the point. I know there
is no conversion. There is no coat, no balance, no shoes but
the naked truth of
me finding you first, not you finding me. You will never
know who I was when I was sitting on the white sheets.
Y..o..u, ..n..o..t ....b..e..s..i..d..e....m..e.
the words that are already written. The words that are already
said, are already felt, and are already gone.
And I try to take
them back into my empty bowl of hands. To put my hands on the
chest. The chest into rest. The
heart. The beat back to the soul. The soul, back to what
it was before you.
Alas! I am 5.7
