30 for 30 & Lady Solace

I was inspired by a poetry reading last night to try and write a poem a day for the month of April. I know I am a few days behind, but I plan on catching up. 30 poems for 30 days.

Lady Solace

I am on the front steps crying
My face raw, my worries spread out in blotches across my eyes and cheeks,
She is with me & she is not afraid.

It's as if, she knows then
That I need her energy & love.

& it's then that I can begin to
Pluck myself out of the burden
& be with her in this moment,
Watching her on her tiptoes peer out the window,
& look back at me and smile.
