Let me show you the veil

how easy it is to step between

the illusion of clouds

yesterday on one side

tomorrow on the other

your life here

waiting for your renewal

take in the deep breath of promise

release, on the exhale, regret

anxiety and despair

you are not here to trap

space. Time moves

through you and everything

not to be captured

but to be lived

There is a tempest inside of you

a storm collecting every cell into being

yet you scatter them

rejecting

until they become the wounded

cowering in this cage you have created

its walls only as strong as your might

The will to dissolve comes from the inside

see the nymph hovering in stasis

her exoskeleton an ugly sheath

holding the becoming

before she can fly she must crawl

waking one leg, and then the other

stretching into the whole

the eyes must learn trust

as they peer through the gaps

and gather the reluctant parts

take as long as you need

feel the journey new

the body moving outside of the shell

ripples the molecules

until they adhere into wings

when you are ready, spread the veins wide

allow the space in between to unfold

and open to the blue beyond
