I reached inside myself today
Let my fingers slip through my chest
And follow the ribcage
That connects necessity, want and desire.
I let my fingers find my heart
And touch the blackened parts
Where hurt and harm had festered
Making their gangrenous paths,
Like varicose veins on my feelings.
I let my fingers slip over the knots
And with love
I loosened them,
Let loose the crows that cawed my hurts
And sang my pain to beauty
