transparent

a free verse

to see through

a plan
to rip a life to shreds
tear through existence like wildfire
obliterate everything — 
wreak
havoc

to say NO

shrink from
a painful birth
hide — 
avoid change — 
run-n-n-n-n-n
away

frightening

to feel
when
hearts beat faster
hearts—
tut — tut — tut
 — stop

afraid to fly

it’s dangerous
to see clearly — 
and be
seen
 — 
to be — 
transparent

shhhhh —

relent — 
let it take you — 
there is no eye
in
this
storm
