that my lips may part for lava

winds sail slow
arriving with difficulty
to confession

I speak against another
back turned
burned by sun light

I am familiar
with the dark –
with poison
with automatic disappointment

that my lips may
part for lava
but not for pardon

and I sail slow over
raging seas
arriving with difficulty
to confession

where familiar darkness
speaks mostly
about me

  1. Hi Maggie
    Nice to meet you, and thanks for taking a peek at my blog. This very powerful! It fits on how I feel today with my depression and agoraphobia. Just one of those “Struggle” days…
    I’m enjoying reading your other posts as well. I’m a new fan๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a good weekend,
    Author, Cat Lyon๐Ÿ™‚
