poetry orb


Its crystal shell fragile
rainbow colors shimmering
I am safe inside
Or, am I?
Ghouls are outside
looking in

I recite and clasp
till pretension cracks
I’m okay. I’m okay.
Fear is waiting
quietly and patiently
tears wavering

A ray of sunlight
spears the sphere
and me, my heart
open and vulnerable
what’s within oozing
“Let go,” they say
“Out and away.
Out and away.”
