packed

i come to you
suitcases full
of the dreams i didn't
want to leave behind

some of them ancient
from the days of my childhood

when i hoped for fun

some of them elusive
from the days of my maidenhood

when i hoped for romance

and some of them unclear
from the times on my own

when nothing was right
and all i could think of
was how much i didn't deserve

and how much i could never be

will you sit with me
and open these burdens
that define me?

or will you convince me
to take your hand
as you walk me through the
garden of shadows

in search of the rest of myself?
