Awake

IMG_0137

after millions of minutes

hiding

soul sleeping

both rapunzel + rip van winkle

yearning for escape

trapped between skeletal bars

now when i stretch

fingertips for the sun

i can feel their shine

+ not the shadow they cast

we’re surrounded by

carefully camouflaged anarchy

swimming misrule masked

in a sea of variables

somehow we’re expected

to turn our life lessons

into fishhooks

+ use wriggling emotions

as bait

to cast a fine line

of braided almosts

out into the dank depths

+pretend at patience

in the hopes that

somewhere

light will flare to life

a bulb from below

igniting all the magic answers

previously hidden

behind great barrier reefs

deep down

we’ll always be waiting

to hear that
