Haunted Memories

Can we step beyond
this primal fear
that haunts the nights
with burnt-out memories?

Do we again dare
to open up and share
the all and everything
we have become?

How can we not
when our very hearts
are now at stake?

and as we open up
we find the flow of love
is everything
composed of quality

bestowing grace
upon the form and face
of our beloved opposite
that lives no more in memory
but comes alive for us again
right now
