• The pain wells up inside
    so she closes her eyes
    and sways to let it fade
    to a place of memory
    where she can breathe
    and just be

    But then the music ends
    and the light comes
    her back
    a supposed rescue
    a two sided smile
    that could have been saved
    for the wisher

    So now the ache ebbs
    and she waits to find her release
    once again
    then the pressure comes
    and with a smooth smile
    she slips to the inviting
    dark formless place
    that now feels like home
