a little pool of freedom

Hold me lightly
cupped like water
and do not clench
or grasp
or squeeze;
just lightly
soft -
carefully casual like,
precious even.
I shall rest there,
in your hand
so soft -
courageously gentle;
a warm resting place
for freedom
to lie still a moment.
A little pool
of freedom
inviting you to sip
but not hold.

That's lovely, Michelle.

Ownership in relationships is a sad but common thing that I had hoped would disappear within my lifetime.

No chance as it turns out.

Perhaps if I live to be 1050.
