Other Side

envision

a grounding spire

absorbing

breaking down the components

releasing

feeding roots with torn edges

remembering

what it was like to be lightening

Down

i am always astounded

to find the walls I didn’t remember erecting

i have broken so many of them

down

then it was bindings

wrapped in straight jackets

straps and chains oh my

carefully navigated

down

to bare skin

only thinking that it was naked

not knowing there was more to expose

down

to the core

flesh unzipping

bones gently encasing

my soft delicate self

fingers slipping through the slit

feeling air

longing to slip into this new life
