Still Loving You

This blank page is the unspoken words
You punched back into my lungs,
The white space your feet
Travelled from the blood stained carpet
To the space between my ribs.

This blank page is my testament
To the truth that I made it.
I mended my broken ribs
And stuffed my mouth with smiles
That smells like the ocean and tastes
Like sunshine.

This blank page is my heart still loving you
But not willing to save you
From the other women who found their
Voice and wrote epistles with their
Blood burning the horror you dealt them
Into blank pages.

MERCY


The mercy I live with lives
In the heavens
A mercy that opens
Locked doors and sets
My blessings free.
A mercy that grants
Me grace that is
out of this world

Miracle

I have been fighting like a bull,
been doubtful like Thomas,
even ran like Jonah.
My bones have been
broken in many places
by battles that won’t end,
struggles that won’t stop
but his grace kept me going
and my reward today
is breathtaking.
So I say God is love
love is God.

Vacuum 

life is free
life flees
life is short
life shouts
to us
to live
and to die
empty.

Miracles

Some days are thunderstorms and hurricanes.
Making me want to hang
my running shoes,
curl into a ball and shut
the world out.

On those days,
I will the other person within
to take over the journey
Some of those journeys
were where
I found miracles.

Status Change

When you go to bed
a bride
and wake up
a widow,
the world becomes
an unseasoned chicken.
Breathing becomes
a bag of rocks
dragging you
underwater to
the land of darkness
and thorns.
– Kayo Logun

Tunnel End

Can you feel it
Creeping behind you
Transforming the hair on your
skin to soldiers at war front.

Can you feel the light
About to swallow
your shadow
Can you feel it
Like summer
After her icy winter.
-Kayo Logun
