Letting Go

makes the heart
spin wild
on troubled axis
braced for shrapnel

means mostly gutted
using entrails
as a compass
through blank forests
and doubtful skies

stares the beast
into withdrawal
asks no permission
to unbury old bones

slowly embraces
the unknown
abandons careful plans
and familiar pain
bends so as not
to break

means crawling
inch by stubborn inch
until there is light

gives love
