Portrait Series; The Overflow

I hand out an empty glass
and she pours all her love
until it’s full
and some more
until it’s brimming
for the road, she says
for the journey, she says
‘because I know you.
you will empty your eyes
dry your body out
and would want to take your
heart, throw it out the
window of a running car
because it hurts, 
because it doesn’t beat
for the right souls, I know
but, I want you to hold on 
to this overflowing love
and warmth. I am
not going to be there
but please remember to
hold out the glass for 
people to give you 
the love you pour out.’
