Please Shine Down On Me

The city is frigid, but I want to be outside.


 


I want to step out into the salt-littered concrete


barefoot.


I'm sure the shards of ice


will crack the skin of my dry heels


but I'd give anything to feel


again


 


I can't find the in-between


I feel everything


or nothing at all


 


...yet I'm only in the cold spring of my life


and it hasn't stopped raining


since I've come to be


 


I feel wasted, wilted


stunted


before I can even even bloom


 


I should be safe in my cocoon


but it feels like a prison


I can't find the key


 


All I want is to reach into the sun


but the clouds act like gates


I have no strength to shake


the bars
