I’ve waited all my life To open this door.
I crouch To be closer to the gravity Of a decision made. It’s fresh territory, So I move slow To stay present To my position.
I grasp For support as my eyes adjust. I recognize the scent. The breeze shifts To create space for me. My feet are sucked By the soft soil To welcome me home.
I gaze With grace-filled thanks To the facets lived, And the worlds that loved me despite knowing I could never stay Where I didn’t belong.
After all these years, Why now?
Because more beautiful Than wanting you Is the truth — I need you.
So, I opened the door To free what I cherish the most.
I am willing To offer you every ounce Of my Being. To reveal every morsel Of my soul. To anoint you with every Drop of my love.
You are worth it. I am blessed.
