Skin and Bone

You

Made of skin

Bone

Flesh

Stretched and now vacant

In a place where children were made

Birthed

 

You Marked inside and out

A road map of your life

Leading to the water’s edge

Where you now find yourself

Feeling the coldness of ocean waves

on your toes

 

Aware that the chilling sensation

Will only last temporarily

Until you let in the warmth

As you dive and swim into the quiet

Uncharted waters of a new tide
