The muse found me tonight.  Or maybe it's that I've absorbed all I can about human cells from the textbook, and this is a steam vent to allow more learning to happen. Either way, writing occurred.  Enjoy.
I have been here always
in one form or another.
molecules and particles...
Matter never created or
destroyed, you know.
A cycle of transfers.
The me you know
will someday blow
across your face
in the form of subatomic
bits and pieces.
Will some part of you
feel that and know?
often I awake
feeling like I'm drowning
and there is no boat,
no lifeline,
not even one
rot-forsaken
jagged rock
to hoist myself upon,
to breathe for a
minute.
And I want it to end.
All of it.
To simply go under
the waves
and not come up.
Let the darkness claim
whatever it wants.
But that's too easy.
And I'd miss something.
I'd miss the sunlight
breaking over the eastern horizon,
the sound of snow falling in
the woods,
the taste of good bourbon,
the warmth of a roaring fire.
I'd miss the weight of a sleepy child,
the shock of a cool lake in summer,
and the feel of grass under my feet.
So I fight.
I claw my way to the surface
as each wave crashes over.
Defiant of the darkness.
And there I am
tall and strong
new scars to tell
the stories
of where I was
and how I've been
and how I've
just scraped by.
And every curve
carved out
and polished
by time.
And I stand
exposed
to love myself
like no one
ever could.
Tall and strong
lean and long
oh, but if they
only would.
Drunkenly spilling emotions,
overflowing with all the things
I'd forgotten how to feel.
Pins and needles-
Oh, oh my God how it hurts.
An awakening.
The warmth that spreads
from the center of my being
outward toward you.
It burns, but it reminds me
that I'm still alive
after everything.
And I reach
as I spill, pouring myself
into open arms
that wrap me safe and warm.

Hey, visitors!
Leave comments.  Help me grow.  My muse randomly shows up and I put down as many words as will flow out of me at any given time, then the well dries up and it's sometimes years before I add more here.
