This breath of life stormed through my cells,
made me aware again...
I could feel,
and I could care again.
Regained more than I ever had stolen before,
into my throbbing hands,
I won’t waste through greed,
I won’t devour through need,
I’ll open my palms and watch as all I’ve ever cared to know...
is finally freed.
Through a portal to where I really am,
back there behind myself in the present,
I witnessed something to live for,
it changed me bringing hopeless despair,
deranged and twisted what was woven there,
all I could do was stare,
and fall into a place never to be found,
now with arms outstretched there is not a sound,
having lost all was to meet the sky with ground,
no more want,
only a flicker,
that a flutter of life exists once again to beckon me toward consciousness,
and I want to know you,
and I want to be known,
and for the first time in forever I want a place to call home.
