To Heal

January 24th, 2013

Everything in chaos

The slightest sound, word, action

sets off the klaxon

Red alert

anger up

fighting again.


Just give me space

I don’t want to be like this

Live like this

Feel like this


I don’t know

how long I need

How long will it take

to repair the rawness

of nerves too exposed

To put the coat back on

the wall back up

Oh gods no,

please don’t put the wall

back up

I worked so hard

to tear it down

Just salve the nerves

Let them heal

Let peace return

to the meadow

Not a fortress

Love and peace

and kindness


Lay out in the sun

For as long as you need

But please don’t hide

behind the walls

Don’t build them up

and disappear
