    ramblings from the hope chest

    Passages
    in life we go through

    Passengers,
    some of us on the local ~ making several stops along the way

    a few of us riding briskly on the "A" train,
    more certain of our destination

    Baggage
    we carry...
    some in streamline suitbags with pockets smartly hidden -
    some, in tattered suitcases, bulging at the seams
    held together by old rope....
    (false hope?)

    Destinations
    vary

    going to
    anywhere but here

    with hopes that tomorrow is much better

    (knowing that heart break and heartache are good places to be
    from)

    running to, anticipating sweet love
    at the end of the line

    "think I got too much luggage"
    (but I told him I was coming)

    "need to shed some of my **** baggage"
    (will he accept me as I am?)

    Passages, we go through in our lives
    new chapters to be written
    old stories gather dust

    as they must

    "I told him I was coming"

    (wonder if he'll be waiting)

    for us
    for new
    for my love to move in
    for life
    for 'true'
    for 'always' to begin

    "I'm coming...."

    I felt compelled to 'cut and paste' at this...to re-construct the impossible 'construction' of all that is you...

    I knew I would find you up there..somewhere in the attic wrestling with passages of truth...sorting through your chest of hopes..tying old luggage with ropes of wisdom borne years ago..

    No matter how heavy the load...you told him you were...'coming'

    *safe-journey*
