I come unhinged

with every breath

I take

inhaling an ecstasy

leaving me weightless

in a heavy world

a high

I didn’t buy

an unknown flight

into anywhere

except former existence

and now

freedom caresses my wings

and I am flying

into the me

I never saw



December 2018

Sometimes Silence

sometimes silence

Sometimes silence

becomes my breath of salvation

offering everything and anything

abundant pleasure

Sometimes silence

eats me alive

leaving behind

only the smallest of crumbs

Sometimes silence

hears my heartbeat

holds it close

knowing its truth

Sometimes silence

steals my happiness

leaving tears as footprints

on a dark trail

Sometimes silence

walks beside me

the lone friend

reassurance of all I am

Sometimes silence

leaves me stranded

bereft in thoughts

of who am I
