A Great and Terrible Tumult!

~~ I have turned from a great and terrible tumult
which I gathered for myself with savage strength
until it turned and devoured me!

Denying the pain only caused it to gnaw upon my guts
That biting and tearing and ripping away was a Death
I chose it over sorrow, until I finally broke down and cried
And all those angry teeth let loose my bowels

It was the beginning of Living – that – Letting Go
The surrender of things held fast beyond their time

Now – ten pounds later, in my withered frame
My skin hanging as though on a line
I shut out the echoes of yesterday
Knowing, if I don’t – I will die there in that past
