Come closer my love so I may whisper these words in your ear.
Words of empathy, spoken through actions long before they ever passed through my lips.
Words of forgiveness… not for your sake, but for that of my own sanity.
Words of release, an end to the internal war that constantly wages within.
With these words I:
Unearth the shame.
Ground the guilt.
Root the pain… as it flows into the earth of our sacred mother.
I whisper those three words you so desperately wish to hear.
You are forgiven…
I speak them out loud manifesting intentions to the universe.
Not for your sake, for you lost that power over me a great many moons ago.
But for the sake of love:
Love for my soul.
Love for my growth.
Self love which is never selfish….
You are forgiven… my love.
So go now in peace.
