The dull ache and swelling love
in your heart.
The traumatic memories and delightful dreams
in your mind.

The drowning, suffocating struggles.
The freeing, enlivening joys.

The cold grip and warm caress
on your throat.
The grinding discomfort and celebrating flutters
in your belly.

The heavy numbness
and uplifting ecstasy.

The fearful falling
and courageous flying.

The separation
and merging.

The disappearance
and soft sweet breathing.

This too shall pass.
