    She lay in my peripheral
    I really didn't want to see her so
    my thoughts focused on
    what was ahead of me,
    fear maybe.....
    may be not unless it was last
    October before November
    came and another hand
    reached out and massaged my
    heart / rubbed the knots out
    so it performed more
    efficiently.......and
    SHE lay in my blind spot which
    isn't really blind because
    when I spin my head 90 degrees
    I see her where?......
    in my periphery gaining ground
    on me /
    on my thoughts / one day she
    just kicked in the door and said
    "I'm here" / wondering why she
    was so for ward I asked her
    "why?" she said I was
    "wonderful" and I
    was left
    speechless.
