A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

Rainy day compilations

"
a little bit of nothing

you can't know
what you don't
trite but true --
you've never been
where I went
but someone like me
having someone like you
when little things
are big
and nothings
are everything
you are more
than you can know
to me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
filling the room with polka dot elephants

dancing around the room
with 300 pound gorillas
and polka dot elephants

I am very good at
filling the room
with words.

all of them but three.

you are very good
at not saying anything
and letting things be.

I heard and said too much
prior to opening your door.

you don't want to say
what you've never said before.

each time you stand
and watch me go
you wonder
is it the last?

neither of us
is quite ready
to completely shed
the past.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------my heart to keep

sacrificed on the altar
not once
but twice.

handed my heart over
like cheese
to mice.

but for the first time
I found someone
to whom I wish to listen.

discovered something
I never knew.

the one who loves you
will never
take your heart
away from you.

the one who says little, who gives away little..that is the one we want to engage...

the one that can make nothing into everything and go to the same places as i.
