imperfections

Perfectly Broken

...

Head cupped gently in hands,

rested on her scraped knees.

Gently rocking away

the latest break

in the fabric of her equilibrium 

 ...

Three deep breaths,

a final tear travells the curves of her face

 slipping into the crevices of her lips

a taste of the salt that sustains and drives her  

... 

Three deep breaths,

a pause, and the arch of her neck

drags her head skywards

the blurry clouds and foggy mememories

blend into resolve 

... 

Three deep breaths,

Arms release shoulders drop,

its time.

 ...

Three deep breaths,

she slides up the wall,

her diamond eyes

focused on a point of light 

 ...

Three deep breaths,

She thrusts herself off the comforting wall 

Fists like anchors,

she pulls up the life from the ground 

... 

One deep breath,

she screams in the name of her reserection 

 ...

Broken in all the right places,

off she walks like a queen 

Loving her pain...
