shift happens

 

how to un-zip

(my soul)

cannot carry

this weight any

(longer)

growth is so painful

new limbs at my

(age)

requires a stretch i

cannot make without

(something)

breaking

is how it all

(feels)

like reality is

moving to a new

(paradigm)

shifting view

 

submission for De’s prompt at dVerse and another poem for the NaPoWriMo pile.

    What clever imagery. Love the title. 🙂

    This is my favorite part:
    “new limbs at my
    (age)
    requires a stretch”

    … especially with the hanging “i” at the end, which leads me to read … “requires a stretchy.” 🙂
