TruthBunny

a little insight can be dangerous

clarity

I know what I told everyone
I’ve repeated the lines in my head so many times

I was beginning to question the stranger spewing the well-rehearsed story
from lips that resembled my own

my story grew tiresome and depressing

Common sense screamed in my ear to move on without remorse
retrospect is a cruel and unforgiving viewpoint
my heart will always offer a compelling argument for impetuous behavior

a dull pain still lingers
so hard to understand how illusions create such realistic side effects

call it instinct or intuition

what once was justification for the inner thrill
became an appreciation to understand the inner peace
only found
at the right time
(not then)
with the right choice
(not him)

the truth(bunny) you long for …

the bitter taste left behind by the sour words you kept repeating has faded to reveal someone different
the resentful cynic you feared might make a home, wandered off to join the utterances of a jilted heart in vain

… and then you have that moment of clarity ..
I had to go through that to understand this.

The Tide

The TX coast

Photo by Joseph H. Davis

Standing on the shore
I let the foamy water gently kiss the tips of my toes
I am motionless and my soles feel heavy and weighted down in the cool, gritty surface below,
I become aware of how expertly the sand molds itself under every curve and crevice of my firmly planted feet as if that’s exactly where I’m supposed to be.

The water now rushes past me and envelopes my ankles,
As if it’s trying to persuade my body to follow the tide.
Why can’t I move on, all I need to do is take
one …small … step …

I’ve made an impression here,
If I move now, the water will quickly fill the sand that hugged my soles as if I was never there..
As if I had no effect…
As if I didn’t exist.

The ebb and flow gain momentum and the waves gently surround my calves
If I remain here, I must accept the tide as a comforting friend…
Surrounding me completely,
trusting the inconsistent undulations,
swirling and flowing about me,
Simultaneously confusing and captivating.

Suddenly and unexpectedly,
I am overcome with the warm embrace of peace that can only come from a sound decision and a healthy heart.

I begin to understand.

I am not supposed to stay..
my footprints on this shore are intended to fade with the flowing current.

The tide does not wash them away as much as carry them on to another shore.
