three cords cut . . .

internal realignment
limbo
deep
deep
sleep
bottomless dreamless sleep
i am ashamed
of how weary i am
falling
falling
debris
thru black void
freefall
a ragged patch torn in the middle
surgically removed?
no.
torn out
threads frayed
fibers unraveled
something ripped out
gone
gasp in silence
what sureness is gone?
i
i
can’t
tell yet
keep my eyes open
too tired to care
yes
yes
visit me
hold my hand
unnameable
fingertips brush
and claw
but grasp nothing
too fast to hold on
the plants touch me goodbye
wishing me well
earth sifts over me
I swallow it
more
more
i haven’t landed yet.
i am turning
falling
inside out.
see you
on
the other side.
i will be stronger.
different.
sealed in healing.
stillborne in silence.
bye
bye.
