We created meaningful 3D objects during the final session of the UCLArts & Healing Social Emotional Arts on A Shoestring training this weekend. We then wrote poems based on our visual art masterpieces.
My sculpture declines the posting of its likeness so I will share the poem instead, a dialogue between the one who aspires and the object of desire.
As a life coach, I midwife desire.
As you read, I invite you to insert a dream, goal, vision, or desire you’ve either struggled to actualize or have yet to express.
I am your desire.
I wonder how you’ll come to be.
I hear your hunger deeply.
I see you yearn for me too.
I want you to know you can have me.
I pretend I don’t fancy you.
I feel your longing anyway.
I touch chasmic tenderness when I think of you.
I understand how vulnerable I make you feel.
I say I want you, yet I am frightened.
I dream of you as you contemplate me.
I try to move towards you.
I hope that you do.
I am open…and willing.
I am your desire. I am you.
If you're ready to birth a long-wanted desire, I can help. Contact me.
