The Cracks Let The Light Out

a string of words cross the space from your mouth to my heart

a hand gesture tears the air like a scorpion’s tail

and my carefully preserved walls

built in the fragility of childhood despair

 

split open to the core

cataclysmic

earthquake

breathing deep

searing pain

darkness, like a cosmos without stars

 

breathing

falling

deep

into the pain

surfacing for moments

before another wave hits

 

breathing into the awareness

surfacing for a moment as the light breaks

 

breathing into the bliss

ecstatic

breathing to the new edges of my being

 

there aren’t any

 

breathing

honouring

forgiving

releasing

breathing

 

no more waves

 

the light pours

in

or out

there are no walls left

 

breathing blisstatic

 

opening eyes

where rivers have silently poured

for bewildering moments

their seeing

their knowing

their past

.. their joy

 

and nothing that existed exists now

 

all is new and my heart has expanded

to hold it all

 

this is why

I live

I love

I breathe
