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
