ANT EMPIRE

Discovered by mistake, that breaking heart hidden under the couch.
Locked in the cupboard.
Buried beneath the earth.
And if it broke, and if I died; what world is left behind?
A towering empire of loose threads.
Pulled at many moments in a life undone.
Towering up to god, my shaking finger of Babel.
Crying out in many tongues to a deaf creator.
The holder of my heart.
These racing rats and spiders which crawl over me at night.
What a sight, it is to see a hollow mind explode inside out.
My little world of mistakes, dew drops to effort.
A treasured time where the earth held still.
And I held my breath, for you looked inside.
And watered my garden.
Tended to the flower that had crawled away from the sun.
My tiny empire, rebuilt by the one.

    I really love these lines. Makes me tear up. What unconditional love might be like. Even when you feel shame, the beloved looks see the beautiful potential and nourishes it.
    And it makes me think about how the Kabbalist believe we are still in the garden but we just can’t see it because we separated from God.

    • Ah thank you, I think there’s that need to be with someone who completes the other sid of you. Your own flower can grow and bloom and amaze, but needs to be watered and gardened by someone to keep alive. That’s what i was going for. (glad you go it). A Lot of Kabbalah is taking off the veils to the life we’ve been perceived to think is real. Thank you for diving in to it all. May you swim up with water lilies in your hair.
