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.
