Poem 2: Forgive

She makes to walk away

 

when he turns

 

and looks her in the eye.

 

And from within

torrents of endless rain lessen

the typhoon winds slow

and the hurricane ceases spinning.

 

She steps

 

when he says

 

Let me feel as hurt as you.

 

A pearly drop falls

as she wills the raging storm away.

And inside, rising from fire

the phoenix grows from the ashes.
