catharsis

i strain against

the invisible

memories

suffocating me,

choking me,

denying me of

air;

i purge myself

of

all the things

that

anchor

me down.

i don’t

try

to hold on,

instead i let

the relief wash over me

and cleanse

my soul

with the tenderness

that comes alongside

letting go of

the haunting past;

i no

longer

need to

cradle the bad

within my palms

and imprison

my heart

within a cage built

with painful words

that

used

to put daggers in

my mind

but oh

i feel

so at peace

and oh

finally

i’ve found a

home

within me

oh catharsis

what a good

friend

you are to

me.
