Shine a light at the core of me
Beneath gossamer layered- time’s opaque brushstrokes
In skin pale and marked by erosion
By pain, which etches, and joy, which stretches
Crack open, let the floating ribs drift away
Gingerly feel around sinew snaps
Slide fingers through heartstrings
Almost there
Here is the force that lies within
Bursting, beating, raw power
Send the light in
Illuminate this sacred space
From which all of me emerges
