Revelation Song

{{No, this isn’t really a song. It is written through the falling rain of
many a broken heart and many more years, in the soul-speak of a song/Psalm}}

What I heard you say…
In the small breath between words, YOU are not enough

What I heard you say…
In the awkward silence, I don’t even know why I’m here

What I saw on your face…
In the careful sideways glance, YOU are weak

What I saw on your face…
Was one side of a conversation, only speaking

What I saw on your face…
Hopelessness, and it looked like me

What I felt in that moment…
With the shrug of your shoulders, you agree with them

What I felt in that moment…
Why can’t I just learn to ‘go along to get along’

What I felt in that moment…
The abuser’s justification

What I felt in that moment…
Generations of disappointment

What I learned from you…
Certainly, without a doubt, I am crazy

What I learned from you…
Your earth has no moon

What I learned from you…
The past is ungrateful

What was handed to me…
The deadweight of disdain

What was handed to me…
The burdens of weakness

What was handed to me…
My neatly wrapped failures

What made my heart hurt
Generations of illusions

What made my heart hurt
You don’t even know that you’re the broken one

What made my heart hurt
I can’t cross the moat to your kingdom

What was loosed in my soul…
You showed YOUR truth

What was loosed in my soul…
You can’t see, you

What was loosed in my soul…
This isn’t about me, it never was
