maybe

maybe…

my melancholy

a well so endlessly deep

i wore its pain on my sleeve,

blaming innocents

for sins they

never did

commit.

maybe…

it wasn’t this

world hurling its every

fury in my direction after all.

maybe…

i learned

to finally accept my

person i so often loathed.

and

maybe

just maybe…

the unconditional love

in your eyes opened mine to

deserving what i feared all my life.
.

and maybe i thanked the universe with all its

myriad moving parts for extending its gentle hand

touching a wounded heart in such a random act of kindness.
