Reaching Out

pouring pen to paper

again after so long

the words flow in river-lets

of ink

and emotion

so long pent up

frightening

and yet fierce

tearing at my soul

for release

pulling back into

deep shadows

in fear

of the unknown

and yet

I push myself forward

cautious

careful

easing into daylight

as if I were a recluse

so use to so many emotions

bottled up

bound in silence

until the glass breaks

the tempest in the teacup

 

words surging

swelling

gathering back

to break free

surf pounding on rock

sand

cliff edges and dragging bits away

to gather again

to be reborn

on the tide of expression

reaching out

from the pages

of sand and foam.
