osmosis

falling from a darkened grey sky

splashing upon a lush green earth and

onto our  skin,

liquid drops of memories

born unto a gathering far

away, motions gone through

in collectives far removed

from us.

yet they sink into our skin

as we stand, rooted to the

same earth,

our faces staring upward toward

the weeping sky.

osmosis personified,

drenched in dreams of

our sisters and brothers.

shattered red glass

hidden beneath white covers

filled with comforting feathers,

you find me,

soaking myself with tears.

gasping for breath,

barely clinging to life.

a grim hole

ripped in my chest,

shattered red glass

surrounding me.

polished, lustrous, and yet

jagged.

every malicious edge

aimed at me.

ominously threatening.

drawing  a deep yet shaky breath,

filled with every emotion,

every memory,

every second of you,

i exhale.

shattered red glass rolls

beneath my soft skin

as i do…

piercing me,

staining the white sheets scarlet.

sanguinary and beautiful,

misery flows deep from

within,

as i stare,

the expanding stains

fascinating me.

their patterns swirl and twirl,

unpredictable.

I rise,

more shattered glass piercing my arms,

my legs..

a welcome throbbing

replacing an apathetic existence.

i stumble toward the door,

naked,

bleeding,

seeking relief.

i step outside

into a thundering

downpour,

a barbaric scream

climbs out of my soul,

echoing back against

the vociferous sky.

we talk,

that boisterous sky and I,

as the rain nearly

drowns me.

as the sky clears,

my wounds heal.

i stand naked,

perilously ethereal and vulnerable.

dripping wet,

covered in water mixed

with remnants of a bloody battle,

i crawl back inside,

rip the sheets off my

bed,

tossing them into flames,

glass and all.

one jagged piece remains,

saved but not treasured.

a reminder

of the heart

which once beat

so dependently upon

yours.


through a wood

i found myself on a road

late one night.

it curved through

a dark forest,

haunting sounds echoed to and fro.

wet pavement beneath

my naked feet,

leading me away from

from him

toward an unknown

destination.

i crept forward,

persistent,

determined,

fearful,

trapped deep

within a prison

built by him

for me

years ago.

as light sliced

through the repugnant

night,

you found me.

reached for me,

whispered strength

and beauty in my ears.

your words

your voice

shattered the fragile

bars of the prison

built for me

by him.

we ran,

filled with a soaring joy,

toward an unknown destination.

your path turned away from mine

suddenly

without warning,

as night plunged deep

into my heart

once again.

i know

i’ll find daylight

soon.

i know

i’ll be strong

again.

for now,

i walk,

alone,

on a path meant for me.

a path on which i am

free,

a path on which i know

i am beautiful,

i am strong,

i am undoubtedly me.

the thunder gathers

in the distance

as rain pours down upon

my body,

i turn my face up,

hold my arms out,

and laugh.
