Your life, little flower
sprung out
like a snake
from a can
lungs not ready
you hit the air
it hit you
violently in
whole systems
months too early
this life on earth
and its lightning
hit and burnt
everything, as
nothing about you
was anywhere near
ready enough
and ever so luckily
your wings were
slow to form too
as it was all
we could do
our weight
and ropes
were barely enough
to keep you
from floating away
but eventually
your wings
pulled back inside
and years later
we're the ones
still learning
to breathe

When you come so close to losing so much, it stays with you- because you know how much you owe.

Our Weight and Ropes by BlackBowfin "captures the almost indescribable feeling of how life changes unalterably once you've come close to losing so much" (suggester's words). ( Suggested by beeinthebottle and Featured by neurotype )

Did it? That process is fantastic/exhausting/successful as all get-out! Ha! I had to take a break AFTER Nanowrimo!

I had a hard time slowing down, but now I'm down to one or two pieces a week.  :)
