rebirth.

the thing i’ve been most afraid of / i’ve felt / i’ve held / watched it waft from my fingertips / grief opened it’s mouth / dam of no mercy/ loosed the pains / holding on / to let go

the thing i’ve been most afraid of / stole my breaths / pulled my spirit through grinding teeth / dug into my heart through bone / shredding arteries on the way / found my dimming stars / in blackened pits

the thing i’ve been most afraid of / i’ve felt / grief opened it’s mouth / dragged me in raging currents / covered my throat / found my sea / surrounded by pride / guarded by silence / drowning dreams

the thing i’ve been most afraid of / i’ve felt / grief opened its mouth / until the tears rained from my eyes / its torment receding / holding on / to let go / settling into my peace
