Awakening

April 24, 2010 at 6:34 pm 4 comments

piece by piece
limb by foot
the tingle spreads up
my legs toes arms
sifts through muscle
slips past organs and swims
straight into my wide open heart
pumping thump thump thump
the rhythm of the universe
right here hidden behind ribs
too brittle to break
too strong to lie
only the weak stay young
and only so long
then they weave their weakness
like armour around boney cages
they split open their mouths
and sing
do you listen or do you cry
and if you listen does your heart know
when to fall
silent?

      Hey Anna – it’s pretty easy to do. The hard part is posting regularly. 🙂
