If I Could - Poem by Renee Marie

What if I could
Slam myself into something
Break into a million pieces and never feel a thing

What if I could
Look out into the world
Bleed into a million gentle hearts and never hurt again

What if I could
Hold a million confusions
My hands dripping with thick truth and never speak a word

What if you could
Know how hard I try
To want so little of anyone
To ask so little of anyone
To understand why words and love gets so hard
To understand.

What if we could
Slam into fearlessness
And embrace the truth of vulnerability
And never have another growing pain
If only it were as easy as words typed-
Thoughts untangled
Feelings accepted
Alone and all bathed clean in

And happily-ever-after
We would float

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written after deep exhaustion trying to understand HOW and WHAT to say or do to gain intimacy in my relationships and comfort in shared awareness.
