This poem is asking for forgiveness of past errors.

Once

© Zoulaikha Eve-Marie Younoszai

Once freed from the claws of anxiety
Once the veil of apprehension is torn
Once freed from the maze of my mind
Clear became all that I have done.

I confused your heart with tortuous lines
I lost your trust with my foolish signs
Though love brunt ardently my heart
Frightened I was to unveil its light.

I wrote words that I could not pronounce
Dread and prudery made me paralyzed
How could you see behind the mask
There was a heart in you forever lost?

Caught in my world of uncertainty
Traumatized by my own vulnerability
How could I see behind your silence
There was love in your earnest heart?

We are both made of the same clay
Our hearts radiate love’s same ray
Though fear has kept us for long as prey
Our trust in each other will soon prevail
Our souls united in faith will soon sail.
