heart space

no matter how much
dharma virtue signaling
even an ocean of
spiritual kudos we can gather
likes and fans
for our amazing proximity
to something that once
used to be holy

it’s not genuine love
and never touches

we will be left empty

ya, I once thought
I was some dakini too
a few lamas said so
probably just to get laid

now I’m just a sad
child abuse
and deep sangha
abuse survivor
starting life all over
reduced to ashes

no one
not holy
just me

nothing to bow at
fawn over

the only insight I have is from
the wisdom of my pain
and the strength
of my heart

longing to create
something real
with someone raw
and real
in quietude
