Ebb & Flow

 

Light, weasels through

streaks of yellow and white

slow and calm

scans the space

missing me.

 

From dawn to dusk

haunting

I’m not ready

leave

tighter, I curl

please

unknown, beckons me.

 

Every few days,

the phone rings

Ma or Pa wondering

“Is she fine?”

“Is she good?”

Will lies work this time?

 

Yes, I’m still here

on the ledge

but still here.

 

Can’t bring myself to action

chain reaction

no absolution

Ma, Pa, little sister

How can I?

But my needs…

 

Heave

sighs on gulps

gulps on sighs

repeat

cocooned in my corner

survive

in my own way

arrive

I will some day.

 

Truth

I know it all

echoes

ebbs and flows

the few

I’ll post the clues

Love, I’ll get back to you.
