Not An Auspicious Beginning

not an auspicious beginning was it –
this return to reality; too much said
too soon – as recklessly spilling your
guts as on a first day of school

but it was in a sense, an outing long
planned in the dark unwound in an
agony of sweet relief – there is now
no going back to the shadowed room

yet it is where you run to repair the
damage you swear must be evident –
but to whom? Judgements are not
implied in such welcoming smiles
