unmasked

the mirror fell last night

and i could see myself again

tasting words on air unfiltered

recognizing the paths

taken

reflected in cascading facets

the mirror fell

released like skin

shed

beautiful still

as it sits empty

showcasing new skin

the mirror

revealing

beauty

unafraid of beasts

unphased

brave

I Sleep Here

i wished for the dreams to return

i pushed and pulled them

seeking to coax them forth again

prodding them

encouraging them

waiting to see if they listened

a trickle, a jot

a small intro

to ease my mind

then a downpour

strange and smooth

to match the weather outside
