In the span of just a few weeks, how you can go from feeling like ashes
Dark and hollow, weightless and scattered
To an almost fire
Fueled by an energy countering everything that was ASSumed for you, thrust before you, pulled out from under your feet
Until you rise above it
The thick and the smoke and the sticky dark you had no fricking clue at one point was holding you back.
It is not an escape.
Rather, an intentional retreat
Towards real™ caring.
Towards the notion that you yourself are the only thing that gets to define you.
Towards the arms and hearts of those who are unwaveringly open to yours.
