I Trip Beneath My Heart

I trip beneath my heart

unsteady—

a little unsure where I last was lost

saddened

out of resolve

 

…my soul knows places—

they still feel like home

I trip beneath my heart

try to retrieve each feeling

Longing

to hold on

to essences where echoes die

 

I trip beneath my heart

a little too desperate for where

clarity finally surpasses and parts

the weight of this air…
