    It feels like the world only considers a woman to be a woman when she has turned herself inside out giving and giving and giving and giving. And even then, even at the end, it does not thank her. It simply chides her for not having more to give.

    Humans are bad at most things. Love, relationships, parenting, holding ourselves together, being dependable. But there is one thing we are so good at, that we are in fact, spectacular at it. We are all so damned good at being broken open. It’s how the light gets out. It’s how we know it’s there. Because once in a while, someone comes along who tells us life is so much more than just existing. Someone comes along to remind us, to stop being so small and so human. And do better by being so much more.

    in a language that doesn’t have the word ‘love’ I say “I still have the receipt from the film we watched on our first date” I say “I bought four red sweaters after you told me it was your favorite color” I say “it’s been exactly two hundred and twelve days since our last kiss” I say “last week, in a hotel room, the complementary pantene shampoo was the type that you use” I say “I walked around smelling like you and nobody else cried over it” I say “yes, I’m still crying over it” I say “the other day somebody’s ringtone went off in class and it was the same noise you set for your alarm and it took me a minute to figure out where I knew it from” I say “I’m terrified of someday not knowing where I knew it from”...

    And though it’s easier now, I will always remember
    the night that I almost drowned all alone in the house.

    listen:
    you know i love you
    but i just can’t take this,
    you know i love you but
    i’m playing for keeps.
    although i need you,
    i’m not gonna make this.
    you know i want to
    but i’m in too deep.

    “when it came to listening
    my mother taught me silence
    if you are drowning their voice with yours
    how will you hear them she asked
    when it came to speaking
    she said do it with commitment
    every word you say
    is your own responsibility
    when it came to being
    she said be tender and tough at once
    you need to be vulnerable to live fully
    but rough enough to survive it all
    when it came to choosing
    she asked me to be thankful
    for the choices i had that
    she never had the privilege of making”

    children are water in their throat.

    cruel mothers are still mothers.
    they make us wars.
    they make us revolution.
    they teach us the truth. early.
    mothers are humans. who
    sometimes give birth to their pain. instead of
    children.

    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.
    ‘after...’ you answer.
    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.
    ‘before...’ you answer.
    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.
    ‘when...’ you answer.
    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.
    ‘how...’ you answer.
    ‘as you are.’ says the universe.
    ‘why...’ you answer.
    ‘because
    you are happening now.
    right now.
    right at this moment
    and
    your happening
    is beautiful.
    the thing that both keeps me alive
    and
    brings me to my knees.
    you don’t even know how breathtaking you
    are.
    as you are.’ says the universe through tears.
    as you are | you are the prayer

    what
    massacre
    happens to my son
    between
    him
    living within my skin.
    drinking my cells.
    my water.
    my organs.
    and
    his soft psyche turning cruel.
    does he not remember
    he
    is half woman.

    Perhaps the actual problem is the inexcusable way
    I have taught myself to love people.
    If my heart was a flower it would be
    an anomaly born without sepal or petals.
    Whole pieces of my soul-gold invested
    inside the bank of someone else’s heart.
    I mean, Aphrodite never shows up at school,
    book in hand, teaching love as the only real art.
    There are no classes in the coping with the loss
    of whole people, no warnings left on memory’s tombs.
    They say love is what makes the world go round,
    but no one ever leaves a note for us in the womb.
    No instruction manual when we are born,
    nor a how-to guide on the correct way to fall.
    Nor one on how to barter pieces of yourself
    without losing an eternity inside someone else’s soul.
    I’m afraid this is why I have always been so lost.
    I have been loved, and I have loved
    but I never learned how to gracefully bear the cost.

    I thought I had found a swan
    but it was a migrating snow goose.
    I thought I was linked invisibly to another’s life
    but I found myself more alone with him than without him.
    I thought I had found a fire
    but it was the play of light on bright stones.
    I thought I was wounded to the core
    but I was only bruised.
    Denise Levertov, Epilogue
