some days *

Yesterday I roamed the earth
Like a traveler gone too long
Like an unfinished song
Like a river without a bank
And I sank

Lastnight I fell asleep
With an ocean in my eye
With a broken-hearted sigh
With a shrinking in my skin
And I gave in

Today I awoke
From my butterfly cocoon
Like a newborn from its womb
Like a turtle from its shell....
And I am well.
