Unwelcome visitors…

“The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.”
— Jellaludin Rumi,

bitterness

Bitterness desired to walk with her,
to have his way
she would not entertain him, she said he couldn’t stay…

Frequently he knocked,
when pity arose
it was the “what ifs”,
the “if only’s”
that brought them to blows…

How was she to exile him
and keep him away?
he was an unwelcome visitor, leading her astray…

So, she invited him in, and they sat for a while,
she told him her deepest hurts and how he was so vile…

She told him she’d worked hard
to keep him at bay,
especially when “charmed lives” had gotten in the way…

He explained that his purpose
was to exhume her pain,
on confessing toxic thoughts
her composure
she regained…

He spoke out her misery
until he was finally through,
she felt so much lighter
and she bid him adieu…

He had taken all her shame and swept her house clean
it was in the dreaded darkness
she’d unearthed the unseen…

Now she welcomes visitors
of every kind,
by bringing them
to the light,
she awakens the divine…
