Burdened

Lay this burden beside your chest
I know it may not disappear
Still there is a world of emotions
on the film of your heart
When given life they breathe meaning
images reflecting the state and the weight
of your being

Where will you go
to ease this step and climb?
I know this burden to let go
would leave you desperate to refine
layers which your has soul made
from dreams of forgetting time

What remains true is how
holding space for your lightness
eases their aches although
you may walk wearily
in a shared sadness
and feel helpless
transparently aching
with the questions
living and taking and granting no answers
inside of your burdensome bones…
