Enervated Longing

retreat to the valleys of safety
after jumping from the bow
trying to prove
we still know

how

testing bravery
witnessing horrors
in mirrors
of our own
thought

confronting the center
of humanness

stone-faced . . .

alone . . .

in birth
and death

we are the masters
of the inโ€”
between
