I Venture Past

Poetry from Song of the Beloved, copyright 2011, Krista Moore.


I Venture Past


The adventure begins
New life and a
round knob of insecurity

I love to picture puzzles
and then burst those bubbles
venturing above what even bubbles can’t know
or see

I venture past shame and insecurity
past the new story and the old
past everything I knew before and

I venture past stony brooks and seas
old fortresses
barricades and trees
past you
past me

I venture to new solid ground
new escapes
new passageways
I venture around bullies
to open doors once promised me

past windows and doors
past hallways and rooms
past ceilings too
past me
past you

past everything forgotten
and true

uncertain still
but new
