In The Way

Why are you afraid to look me in the

Eyes when you speak? I wonder

What would happen if someone

Said, stop blocking, be released ?


Risk choking on

Serenity, consumed unexpectedly

And take it, hot – cathartic

Spice. Feel nose sweat

And throat burn as all

Heart’s pores open

And tears boil over,

Wheeling hot tracks

Through the ashes of Fear.
