Crisp moon at my feet, reflect to me my truest nature.
Lie to me not, for you know no such thing as ego.
Tell me, let go.
Arriving at the green blades edge, my spine straightened by the freeze of the mountain water.
I fall into cold.
fall into feeling…
Memories once shoved into the cozy corner of the forgotten, are now jolted from their slumber.
Rushing the front of my brain like daggers shot from a booby-trapped tomb. Piercing the core of my denial.
Moods flooding, the murky reflections of meant to be.
The smell cringing in bubbles exiting my mouth.
Let me feel the burn of it.
Let me drift to the bottom, toes touching upon mud
Allow the fish to eat my eyes first.
No longer needing to see.
The pain they have witnessed, not just of myself, is enough to ache for the tinge of the first nibble.
The decomposing of me.
Hold death, let me feel the weight of water filled lungs, mouth gaping, deceived by the assumption of oxygen’s availability to me at all times.
Let me feel the disappointment.
Let the childhood stories, beginning with sledding and ending in crumpled panties and lost innocence, tag along with my last scream.
Allow me the release of knowing I am food.
Not driven with purpose yet fulfilling THE purpose…to feed what I have eaten.
No permission needed,
All are welcome to the piece.
