I Wanted to Tell You a Story

(from Brainstorms)

I wanted to tell you a story
as we sat under the tree,
to share a piece of my heart,
a glimpse inside of me.

I mustered up the courage,
dug deep inside my soul,
putting together pieces
to make the picture whole.

I wove humor and sadness,
some moments of madness,
and even a few of
my demons to banish.

The highs and the lows,
the peaks and the woes,
until I was utterly
stripped to the bone.

You turned and you asked,
“Is that the last
of this tale that
you’ve been spinning?”

I said, “My friend,
there is no end.
We are always
just beginning.”
