4PM Release

the bouquet of tiny, firm tendrils

massage my jaw

melting the makeup down the drain

I stand holding my breath

feeling the gentle pressure on my eyes

waves of fear cleansed away

spirals of frustrations

form a puddle around my feet

the unachievable to-do list

the one that won’t ever end

the one that keeps

going

and going

and going–

flushed.

I turn smiling

and turn it from warm to hot,

hot spirals of silver

soften the sinews

washing it all way

giving me permission to draw the curtain

and walk away–

free

light

calm.
