Foreboding Joy

anxious

perplexed

small and scared

with buttery fingers

and Teflon hands

I cannot hold the reality of this charity

and

I am terrified I will lose it

What is it to be happy

to be enraptured

to be swept away in wonder?

What is it to lean back into the bosom of tenderness?

I look at my hands

anxious

nervous

but then they are filled

and you hold tight

don’t worry Beloved,

I got you.
