No Reciprocation

Say all yes, catch pain,

loyalty’s royal demands

no reciprocal.



Honeycomb dripping

here comes blade and deadly tongue

bitter heart tears down.


In the quiet, in the stillness,

Your soul can be unbound;

that voice to your spirit

joyful when you’re found.

The beginning may contain

bitter, gasping tears,

full radiance, grace plain

In contrast to your fears.

Seed of faith nestled,

living water coaxes out,

Tremulous new steps,

beaming smile and a shout.
