Set Free

A moment in prayer was made beautiful
by a fleeting glimpse
of your blessed
smile.
The floodgates of my heart
burst open,
no more shackled by
fear,
nor withered by judgement.
I felt love abound
for myself.
My spirit soared
even as tears fell.
With each drop,
I was raised to wondrous heights.
I bowed down to you
and knew that
at long last,
I had set myself
free.

I love it. So so beautiful. Amazing use of opposite terms. Soared and fell, drop and raised, bowed and set free. Wow. What beautiful meaning - true poetry. Well done! xo
