Growing wings……

Her body was a mix of past lovers that
had left their residue of treachery on her
soul and straight through bone and marrow

She carried them in her womb and
labored for years to give birth
to their demons.

Below the world, drifting waves
of moans dance with the sounds
of eternity where the demons
hide behind the ribs of the fallen.

Is there a science to letting go?
An equation, a formula to how much
we can carry on our backs
under our tongues and
in the pit of our stomachs
before we lose ourselves?

Please tell me the science to
letting go before we break
before we split ourselves
in half for love.

What he lost…..

On days he contemplated slitting his wrists and bleeding his pain away on the bathroom floor; he whispered silent prayers begging for love beyond the superficial, silently praying for unconditional healing love.

And the universe answered his prayers and gave birth to this woman it had held within the stars and constellations in the shade of the moon.

He held the most precious being in his arms but not knowing how to receive her love and give love he lost her forever.
