I wish
I was one
of the strands
of your hair
wrapped softly
on your delicate finger
DNA-like and inextricable
so tightly wound
with you
that when
they came at you
they would have to
come at me too
and later on
in the late cool night
when I died heroically
on your fiery red hairbrush
I could smile
and say that
I perished happily

All The Letters I Didn’t Send

"Balance, she is a tricky bitch. The tightrope is stretched taut, high above an anxious audience. The space fills with an expectant hush so loud it transforms your being into an echo. Half of the souls below are hoping you’ll make it, the other half wait for you to fall. You will freeze in the middle, guaranteed. You’ll be convinced you have to stay, await a clear answer that delivers you the certainty of the exact right choice. The one that will make everyone happy. The one that delivers truth without regret. The one that will take you to the other side without collateral damage. And I wish I could say that that answer will come. That you will do what you need to do and cross to the other side and everything will be the same. And maybe it will. But darling, transition is no time for the hopeless task of satisfying everyone. You’ll drive yourself mad trying. We all do. But now it is time for doing exactly what scares you the most." —Jeanette LeBlanc #HOLYFIRE #WAKINGWILD #WILDWOMAN #HOWLFORYOURLIFE Read more: @kayharr73 @ladypantzz @thugunicorn @dharmaunicorn @jeanetteleblanc @jeanetteleblanc.writer @wildheartwriters
