THE RETURN

This is what it is to be unsound:
the whole reduced to holes, soul erosion.
I’m but a seed head in the grip of plows,
defenseless against this perversion 

of giving. The heart domineers.
It was never weak. It does not break,
but it empties you so that you disappear-
consumed or overlain as love raids...

until it turns with sweet fortification. 
Bless sudden shift, a bolster of tenderness
gifted by a one caring friend. Your rations
will return.  Benevolence is boundless.   

So, drain the well dry and clear off each shelf
for what we bring others also nurtures self.

    to be such a giver comes with a price, the depth of such a heart can never be measured by anything except the depth of the pain it absorbs and the distance between can only be filled with joy or loneliness,for if giving is only to nuture one self doesn't that cheapen the gift?
