Clarity floats over head
just above my grasp
I think of reaching but the energy cost is too great

I would rather it come to me effortlessly
Floating down with the elegance you said “becomes” me

Should I not be satisfied to sit and wait?
you did say things come that way?

What energy should I expend to heal?
Enthroned and graceful am I not?

Bring forth the healing
Make ready the recovery
I’ll apply no effort
I am in waiting, royalty,
In this castle of confusion you devised
..............................................................
but I know as you read this
I can feel your smile
thinking you’ve succeeded
not knowing all the while
that I’ve patronized you to avoid your control
transcending discreetly
your superior role
more masterful now
I don’t want you to know
for fear of regression
could readily show

the power you might still hold

dan,

The fear of reaching out... the fortress of fear and perception that surrounded us. Terror, a confidence that belies our shaking in the night, anxious that the abuser may reclaim our function, from the inside or out.

We have to transcend to these depths in order to find the true freedom effort and courage muster. Welcome back from this contorted truism, and from a way we will never believe in again.

Welcome back,
Sam

Thank you for the recognition, it is encouraging when a "brother" understands
something nestled in a poem, it gives some validation to the insight.

I's nice to look back knowing it has encouraged even more strength for moving forward.

Thanks again,
Dan

From the sounds of your poem it seems you’ve nothing to fear of his knowledge of your “discreet transcendence” from his manipulations where you’ve clearly risen into a superior place of your own control. Nicely written poem with a message of hope I love to read.
