Coming to realizations that make me shift in my seat.
Having revelations that make me weak in the knees.
Crawling skin with shuffling feet
Wide eyes with chattering teeth
Put me in a box six feet deep.
Couldn’t stand the sight of the smoldering embers
Breathing faintly in the failing light of fall
The spark was there, but the fuel had faltered,
As winter’s chill echoes through these halls.
The vastness and immensity
Of infinite possibility
Had become a crippling weight
That slowed my breathing and heart rate.
Tearing these blinders off.
Inching my way out from under this rock.
Stoking the embers with newly found breath
Feel full and fulfilled, awake, no regrets.
Taking new form.
Never seen before.
Becoming the storm.
I am the thunder.
The bolts of lightning.
I am the pounding sheets of rain.
Scream aloud this pain.
