:: That one thing ::






There is that one thing.
That one moment you hesitated,
that one second you waited,
that one thing that has not stopped
haunting you since.

Can you still see it? I can.
It still hurts to imagine it,
fear pulses down into my toes.
But, I look at it.  And now, I think
I can see it for what it is-
raw, naked, and quite imperfect.

I reach deep inside of myself
through my skin, tissue and muscle
and I grab that flaming mess
that has been festering for years










I throw it far away...
I can see it fly off, off into....
beyond the horizon
and watch it burst into flames.

Now, I can feel the rush of relief
that sings from every corner of
my very being.

I'm Free.
