Different Only in the Telling

Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA. James Gordon, 2007 (CCA 2.0)

I have been to the dark places

dwelt in utter depths, felt them

calling their own

inside me

 

too many to count the ways

the paths may differ

the particulars peculiar

but we meet there

all the same

 

and so the flicker of

recognition

greeting

pain

in another’s eyes

 

and the smiles, just as deep

from souls cracked open

to the core

 

hearing the stories different

only in the telling
