A Poem by Susanna F

To Sean, in my darkest hour.


Boom. Boom. Boom.

Something beats

In this ravaged shell.


I begin to bleed

Begin to breathe

Begin to be again.


I see your eyes

Your fingers grasp

Pulling me from the brink.


I beg you please

Don’t let go yet

I am still struggle-weak.


I rest now, rest - breathe a moment

Step now, step - one at a time

Forward, forward, back again.


“Be yourself,” I hear

“You decide,” you say

Change of POV.


You are beside me

Then watch me go

We all walk alone.


My soul in flames

Fear burns away

I learn to live again.
