trying to release it, them, you
I unhook my bra
searching for a moment of that freedom
I close my eyes and breathe
I hit play to that playlist,
the one that heals
hoping for a moment of kindness
find a comfortable position
close your eyes
tilting my head back
Yet you remain
your roots thrive
growing faster with each breath
traveling into the cells of my bones.
believing that you will never release my mind, my body, my soul
to live free, light, sweet.
