Personal Expression, Release, and Exploration of the theme of "Breaking"

Continuity Broken

The lights flicker, on and off

I dance trying to keep in tune

I ┬ádon’t always have control over the switch

 

Sometimes there is a break in the circuit

Continuity broken

Left scrambling to hold on

 

 

Flow punctuated by empty spaces

Cracks in my tapestry

Useless worry, derailing me

 

 

Always fighting

To keep connection from severing

 

 

This is different than the healing space

The place I want to fall into

To renew my perception again,

And again.

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.
