Poem: “The Heart is No Minotaur”

Something a bit short today, a blurb from one of my trying-to-sleep, must-write-this-down-before-I-forget-it writing sessions….


Sit with me long enough,
in the middle of the labyrinth,

your body all the way open,
and I will come to you, 

lay my head and horns in your lap,
rest with you on the grass,

nothing to slay or be slain.
Yours, for life.

  1. I read this as a beautiful love poem. In love, there are no monsters. There are just entities coming together at the heart of the maze that is this world, this life. Marvelous. ❤
