Unfold Me

Of course.

The hurt,
And disappointment,
Have opened
A wound
Which seems never
To heal,

Demanding distance,
From others,
From sources of unfulfilled
Expectations,

Shutting me down,
Steeling my heart,

Taking no chances,

Unwilling to accept
Yet another emotional defeat.

And now…

You.

Slowly,

And with patience,

I just ask
For your understanding,
And acceptance.

There’s been
Too much pain,
Too much remorse.

Now,
In this moment,
Be gentle,

Gift me your grace.

Just your soft urging
And encouragement…

Be patient…

I will be yours…

Just go slow,
And easy,

Just with
A gentle whisper…

Unfold me.
