Woke up yesterday morning with a weight in my chest and an existential crisis in my soul. So I wrote about it. Badly, but thought I’d share anyway.
Awakened by restless silence, I wait,
and know the moment when
The world leaps silently and settles
its immensity upon my heart
A perching panther with unretracted
claws piercing through the walls
Of reserve and compromise.
It waits–its heaviness growing–
