Letting Go


Every fear I have can be thrown in the ocean.

Pulled against their will

stretching and strangling from my brain

out through my ear.

Wadded up

all sticky and melted.

Squeezed out ’til dry and wilted.

Crumbling little by little

so they can never fully reform

and tossed with the wind

for the tide to unlearn.

One thought on “Letting Go

Add yours

  1. Heh… I came over to look at your OWPC, and wandered into this, which I hadn’t looked at yet.

    Remarkably, I just posted an entry sharing this theme of giving your worries up to the ocean. : )

    I love your take on it. They way you rend fear by the actions of the ocean, until it becomes powerless. So visceral. So lovely.
