BREATHING WORDS

I am
my own sword
slicing
through veils
of self doubt,
shredding the layers
of opaque fabric
till it becomes
crisp,
clear air

“I BREATHE!”

the first breath
of a poet’s
sustenance
to finally stand
on cut feet
before a warrior
who has sheathed
swinging,
chipped blade
and in its place
a flowing pen
that etches on marbled skin
an epitaph
of bleeding words,
seeping,
enriching
dusty thoughts
to find their own paths
through flesh and bone
to the heart
of all beats.
Here I stand
shoulder to shoulder
with all
who have made dark journey
and in unison
we inhale/exhale
into lungs waiting
the seeds and spirit
of all words.
