Stop dressing your wounds in thick robes fear,
Dress your aching bones in love instead.
Love is ancient medicine, subtle as stardust
Mist yourself with it daily, and you will become strong and beautiful
Impossible to ignore,
An orchid in her heart-stopping prime.
How long will you suffer and try and look?
How long will you run and roam and hide?
How long---how long until you stay here?
Here, now, right here,
The ruby-dusted road that leads to everything.
Look at yourself.
And this moment, this moment
With your heart open as wide as your eyes
The curtain lifts,
The smoke clears.
There is only love.
Only love and you
And ferocious beauty.
Drape your aching, thirsty bones in
The unstoppable satin of love.
