melancholy leaves me breathless…
Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness
It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.
God, rest in my heart
and fortify me,
take away my hunger for answers,
let the hours play upon my body
he said, and now,
and never once mentioned forever
Her poetry combines dark introspection with joyous release.
