-breaking apart

sometimes,
it feels as though I’m melting
spreading into lather-like substance
losing firmness
consistency
breaking apart, slowly- irrevocably
a withered fern losing its light

other times,
melting is like healing
its the scabbing of old scars
its taking me into surprising new forms

its as though the fire of pain
came to glue me to the earth
melt me into honey
clinging and seeping in to the earth
losing all of the parts of myself, that held me rigid and firm

I’m falling apart

and coming home to myself

-an irrevocable work in progress
