“Break Me Open” poem

Break Me Open

I wait here for the doors to open
I welcome the release
The crack in the wall is my freedom

Smashing of boundaries
Wide open spaces
Where artificial fixtures

Finally no longer stand.

Surrender.
The storm.
The hurricane.
Smashes the house

And the gates fall
The structure crumbles
And my world appears intact,
Again.

So blast it open.
Penetration!
Break
It
Down

Tear me apart
Hurt me!
Because my world is not real,
Is not real!

Break me,
So I can live.
Hold me down,
So I can be safe,
And not float away.

Catch Me

Sometimes I am able to sit in myself

At home in my skin

Grounded with a secure foundation

A lake to float in

Soft, present, and soothing

Sometimes, I am here.

Sometimes I glance around me

Gaze shifting this way and that

Unable to settle down

Nothing to hold and contain me.

Waiting, for the door to open

I glance at you

You look away

I want to hold your gaze in mine

And you to hold mine in yours.

I want you to hold me down

And I want to hold myself down

Stop this endless running.

There is a place that is unbroken.
