after all this time, hello again

by Olivia Weinkein

the fog has lifted
my journeys that took me
far & away have brought me back
once again to sit quite content
on your doorstep. i allow all of the
memories of love for you i had
to come flooding back,
clouding my vision beautifully and
washing all else away. i am safe
again. a weary traveler that was always
searching elsewhere when what i really
wanted was here all along. i am home.
and ready to wait forever for you to
recognize me, to see me as i've always seen

something worth standing still for.

Well, its a nicely pronounced, an extremely positive msg., vibrating with refined energies. I hope the vibrations gets transmitted. I wish you all the best.

A well-framed inversion of the classic "I must journey after you" paradigm.

one thing is certain, as I scour and delight in your ode, is that this and others you've writ have a very musical way about them. they enchant, to put it more succinctly.
