Saturday Scribbles

2013-07-08 10.07.39

Today’s scribble is a little midnight rambling scrawled across the back of a magazine after waking from a very vivid dream.

Because sometimes our insides claw their way to the surface….

 

My blood crackles like boiling water
Beneath my skin,
Fighting to breach the surface.

A relentless burn,
fueled from the broken deep;
A deep thirsting for new life.

Buried, stifled, smothered…
For a lifetime of fear.

Relief is found when this boil turns to flame,
And the fire finally reduces the old to beautiful ash…

And from the ash rises beauty once again.
