An Oath...

An Oath
By Jen Besemer

doubt borrows like a tick
under my skin, denying
the older things i know,

hissing like meat on a grill
to say i am less than myself
and neither loved nor strong,

niether Priestess nor Empress,
my heart a wooden spoon
useful only for work,

my body cold and flaccid.
but i have rocked in the cradle of flame,
i have bathed

in the seed of my lover,
i have held the egg close to my heart.
this dance is not my last

i will burn that doubt
in the iron post of life
and will make my way slowly home.
I Aear cân ven na mar ~ 'The Sea calls us Home.'

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea
~ e e cummings
