Thou hast loosed my bonds

At dawn the night loses all its grip; neither the room nor the street even remembers how dark you were, how blind.

Come into a clearing, light poured into it, pressed down, spilling over. Feel a gate open inside you.

Once we broke all the dishes, we tasted the food.

Behold, I am doing…

You can’t imagine how deeply you hurt her, how deeply she forgave you without your knowing.

Thou hast loosed my bonds
