A Girl and a Buoy

A(nother) poetry duet by Blue Girl & Bruce Ruston
Bruce, of Brain Jar and Inkinetica fame, is in italics
Blue Girl, less than famous, is not in italics

~

I set aside my past
Attempt to grasp the future
It reaches back and pulls me on
To find the thing I’m searching for

~~~

the hurt and pain
anchor the feelings
unwillingly, as time goes
they will learn of flight
as forgiveness shines

~~~

The anchor weighs heavy
I must tear through the rope
Sawing through the fibres
The edges start to fray

~~~

Rise up as buoy
red and mirthful
promoting the safety
let all longing sink not
and tarry forth renewed
to the arms, of another kind

~~~

The last thread released
I am freed and I bob
Up to the surface and into the arms
Of the welcoming hope
