Inside me is a thrashing wild soul.
Threatening my precious balance.
My poise and responsibility, created so carefully.
I worked hard for this.
I don’t want to tumble from this peak.
Except for those times…
When it’s all I want.
All I can think of.
Just sliding on my ass through the jagged rocks.
Tearing skin and reveling pain that wakes me.
Burning scrapes that I can’t bear to peek at.
Scaring badges of courage.
All the way to the bottom.
Where I would wander to any place.
See the wonders and be who I should.
An imperfect human on this wild earth.
As it should be.
Oh hell, it almost escaped…
I almost escaped.
But I stopped it.
Art is Mine 🙂
