Kicking the Dog

The pain in my gut

from your shoe-kick of words

takes my breath away

and words are lost

in the shame and sorrow

as I kneel in regret and remorse.

    Hi Cheri

    The brilliant, beautiful, expansive, world-spiritual self you so often manifest must be the most real, authentic You, as it’s something that can’t be impersonated. Anyone can fall into the despair and self-negation expressed in that photo and those words; I hope you don’t loiter there long.

    Wow, just wow. Not a lot of words, but there’s so much emotion and depth Having been there myself, you put it into words beautifully.
