Invisible Love

254 19 17



You scurry and hustle

Through throngs and crowds

Bustling back and forth,

Weaving and spinning

In a graceful dance

Plucking little treasures

Left behind

By the goblins and trolls

Shuffling glass-eyed

In their own trance-like dance.

You are an army of spotlessness

Wiping away the smudges and stains

Of gluttony and greed.

Lights glimmer and shimmer

And flash and flicker

And the cacophony of sounds

Is a wall of giants stomping

And cursing the eardrums

And yet,

You still come,

Swarming like a bee

Feeding the hive.

The crowds are oblivious

To you, seeing only the shimmery

Outlines of your ghosted presence.

They miss the heart that beats

With love for those around you

The ears that hear

Pain and confessions of brokenness

The eyes that see

Suffering faces and slumped shoulders

The hands that hold

And smooth the ruffled feathers

The arms that embrace

Comforting the lost ones

But most importantly,

The mouth that leaks

The sage wisdom,

The uplifting encouragements

The whispered love

Revealing all the beauty of each soul

That steps into your circle of warmth.

You are so many things

To so many people,

But to me you will always be,

My beautiful friend,

The one who was there

In my darkness,

Holding my hand

And whispering the words

I most needed to hear.
