Restart

torn ligaments

snapped tendons

lapped up by predators

a part of me

emerges

unscathed

pained

weary

but willing to

reinvent

rebuild

and give life

another chance

 

Is there a world out there

to give me ground

and air

to breathe?

the battle of life

will start

all over again

in that precious space

in between.

The wisdom

of the netherworld

nourishes me

to scare others.

    I enjoy this line as the Netherworld is what I call the alternate reality in which my stories take place. Oddly, it is actually a place of acceptance, very unlike the waking world.
    People always found me scary because I’m different, but I never wanted to scare anybody.
