The river was so clear.
fearlessly into water.
And yet, many rivers did not put those fires out.
You cooled the hell of my child feet,
I spent my life, a whole life running from demons,
Falling on thorns,
Dying to escape the shadows I had been born into.
And then you,
A clear blue river with mosaic sun warmed golden stones,
You stopped me.
My heart was shattered into ruby ashes, black dust.
But you, you took my heart,
You held it in your hands.
All pieces held by you.
Each piece an emotional truth.
You showed me all of me,
She was hiding within the flames,
Living in terror.
The little girl diamond that no fire could destroy.
It glimmered amongst the ruin,
I felt myself, as a little girl,
Rise from the agony.
Growing, mending, vines of love wrapping this heart.
You polished that diamond and put the little girl back in my hand,
And I put her back inside of me, into my heart where she deserves to live.
You showed me these things,
At your touch, I began to glow.
You are the clear blue river,
