Inspired by Sheenagh Pugh’s Sometimes
Sometimes a name is not
yelled, it’s cooed. On some lips
Sometimes you are like hymn when she calls
A person sometimes is closer to a god;
she is truth, a guardian, guidance, bright as
the moon in the night sky.
Some people are more than divine.
Sometimes our mistakes are
not unforgivable, not to those who matter.
She will sometimes shock
you with the fact she loves you: she is
blasphemous, and more kind than anyone before.
