feels like

sometimes it feels like
a cave-in crushing my chest;
other times, scraped thin


sometimes terror sinks
its dull claws into your soul
just remember: breathe


for new sunrises
intimately knowing how
to guide one’s heart true

in hiding

I bawk at sunlight
not trusting the warmth to not
hide behind lightning

the hardest part

racing hare heartbeat
wanting to know what might be
’round the crooked bend

slow and steady

slow and steady say
a solid oak upward grows
branches let one fly

to see you

like a flower bud waiting
to feel the warm sun


lips curl iris-like:
petals opening fully
to reveal splendor


objectively sub
-jectively i wish we weren’t
such a perfect fit


a thin connection
spider silk around my heart
an anchor to hope
