In Bloom

Because I love you

Bruises turn to flowers

Blue and purple fields of color

Irises in bloom


Trust is not given

But it is earned

My scars become more

Traces of lightning

Under your fingertips


History is futile

If no lesson is learned

I bring my pain to yours



What was once abused

Heals, regrowth

Like fire devastation

Harbors new life

This trust is new


Communication was fear

But no longer am I afraid

Open to a whirlwind of new

Tornadoes of conversation


Expression is hope

Sharing the past

Oysters open, emerge

The most beautiful pearls

Once lost now found


Because you love me

Apprehension turns to trust

Life holds new color

Love is in bloom
