RAPTURE

 

hands
‘feel the lightning of their soul’

 

This is from a longer poem of mine called ‘Rapture’, which you’ll be able to read on June 16 when my book comes out!

There is heaven within you,
in the miracle that is your heart,
in the capacity you have
to hold someone’s hand
feel the lightning of their soul
and say, ‘I love you,’
or perhaps better yet, ‘I forgive you.’
