The stillness surrounds her
It's all familiar as her eyes open
bringing life to her mind
Her heart hearing the words before they escape his lips..
everything has changed everything remains the same..
all of life's moments filtering through her as she hungrily laps it up
absorbing every drop
Ravenous for change
Clinging to hope
Believing every moment has its' reason and each step a purpose..
the very precipice she teeters at determining whether she flees or stays..
Desperate to settle
anxious for her heart to breathe
She simply chooses to believe
As if it will all fall into place
Knowing the highest cliff she could jump from
there's no reason to run anymore
leaving behind the chains that strangled her heart
and the handcuffs that bound her tight
the ropes slip off her feet
and the old becomes new
She is confined no more…
