    I slip words
    underneath the
    bars of this invisible cage
    in hopes of placating
    in hopes this suffering
    has soothed
    in hopes these stripes
    have soothed
    in hopes that comfort
    is gained
    from the afflictions
    born so long
    blind words of love
    sent from just a man
    whose world is
    far from wide open
    and long since closed

    slip your words underneath
    invisible bars
    that old scars may be made whole
    by the folds and folds
    of comfort given...to soothe the soul
    and heal the pain
    gained over time
    coz'd by the lying and deceit
    of mask wearing sistahz and bruthaz
    and others...who walk into your wide open world
    since closed.

    ~meditating on the thought~

    the ability of your words to reach so deeply
    still amazes me....
