When Love Comes

You know
how love usually finds you
broken
scared
alone.

finds you
quivering on the bathroom
floor, helpless

usually at the end of
a bottle
a relationship
a life.

love usually finds you
like this.

A friend of mine today said, “The sadness in the nation is tangible.”

i wondered why it was so hard to get out of bed, get out of the house, get out of my strange mood. i’ve never seen this place, my friends and neighbors like this.

Somewhere between sharing in this tangible sadness, more love for Thailand has found me.

These days i weep with her and pray for her, for these are the only two things i can do.

Please pray for Thailand, too.
