seep in through
the cracks slowly,

just enough
to fill the gaps,

like streaks of lightning
mark your presence,

in these voids
which were absent once,

broken is redundant
the world has taught,

the damaged can always
still be repaired,

the form remains
complete in shadows,

its sunlight
which bares the painful cracks,

the paradox
of what is complete,
and who completes who,

is beyond the comprehension
of a simple heart,

so seep in through
these cracks slowly,

just enough
to bridge the gaps.

it
lay there waiting
for the longest time,

invisible barricades
illogically
keeping it confined,

each drop of lived life
adding to the reservoir
hidden from sight,

there is a limit to that
which can be
artificially withheld,

water contained
in any magnitude
when freed will flow,

i did not change
any form or character
when the superficial walls cracked,

it was the inherent being
that outgrew the limitations
and found its own natural flow.

the displayed
picture,
on the
interactive
media,
has by now
slowly
lost
all its colors,

in a sea of updates
those aged edges,
with an expired
freshness,
seem lost
in a time,
that is
no longer
‘with it’,

pensive poses
still
often held,
behind that
familiar
public frame,

now devoid
of colors
once held
within,
it learns
to exist,

in the
timeless
and
endless,
shades
of grey.

I have
often observed,
the two ways
that sane people,
seem to lose
their sight,

the first,
when darkness abounds
in its unconquered glory,
where even shadows
fail to survive,
and, existing doors
and windows of breath,
transform themselves
into blank concrete
heartless walls,

the second,
when the light
is there,
but shines too bright,
to hold its goodness
from spilling beyond,
the built in limits
of the rational capabilities,
of this flighty
human mind.

I
release you
today
from this
existing self,

the beliefs
you hold
that bind you
to this identity,

the conditioning
ingrained
by each
borrowed
brick laid,

the expectations
you hold
from being
what you
were,

and those
that remain
unfulfilled
from those
around,

from the image
you perceived
to be
a reflection
of you,

and the
mirror
which only
sees
your age,

from the physical roots
that limit
the growth
of that
which is unbound,

and from your own
perceptions
that confine
your
visions,

from the narrow
definitions
that slot
the differences
between success and failure,

and the thoughts
that hold you back
from reaching
for the open
skies,

I
release you
today
in all the ways
I can,

Its time now
to rediscover life
through the
unfiltered lenses
of your soul.
