safe haven

image

nside my belly
i often reach out
For that tiny soft palm
Seeking safe haven
For landing
~
For
comfort
Security
Away from fear
Flares licking
insides
~
When fiery words
Flung in anger
Rained unbridled
Frightening her gentle
heart, pushing it deeper
inside her favorite books
As she became at one
With their words, pages
Cover to cover
~
