I am, harvesting the sky

Gifting it to my heart to keep

Come tomorrow by sunrise, I must

Complete cocooning, in equilibrium


Ask and you shall see into my ephemeral curls

Each piece, a gateway to something heavenly 

Rearranging thoughts 

Getting to know self


Must I follow the footprints of joy

Back into the lungs of yesterday 

And learn what it means to be sky 


I’ll close my eyes

There’ll be so much to feel again

I am only here, dressed by time

Sitting within every piece of self

Trying to separate the meat from the bones


Some days I wilt

Some days I burn

Some days I laugh

Some days I bloom


Some days I lean on the ones I love

Other days I sink heavily into myself 

Only to find a home, waiting for me
