confusing splendor [poem]

I hope my words bring you the best of things
and the worst
I hope you feel hurt
feel a reflective guilt in the places where
you can see your own sins
I hope you feel empty
feel the hollow echo resonating
between our two souls
I hope you feel cracked open and raw
exposed to the core
and then
I hope you feel the scabbing over
of those wounded places inside of you
I hope you feel a healing itch to live a little harder
feel the desire to embrace forgiveness
without forgetting why it’s necessary in the first place
I hope you feel happiness
feel the glow left behind by a good long laugh
feel love again
for yourself
for someone else
for living
I hope my words bring you life
in all its confusing splendor
