Thanks for Giving

Thank you for having an abundance.


Thank you for having an abundance of love. For allowing me to shower you with my tears and for those arms that held up joy. Thank you for the quiet nights, and the black pits that cover me. Thank whatever gods may be for this unconquerable soul.

Thank you for this breath. A measure of us. And for those feelings that I allow to pass through me without judgment. And for those times I do judge and hold my breath. 

Thank you for those feelings that I have felt with my entire body. The skin electric, the blood like fire, the arresting sensation of touch.

Thank you for knowing when to stop.


Thank you for 10 more things . . . stop.
