Rebirth

Years since I’ve felt a thing

but the numb of pretending.

As though you took your hands around my shoulders

around my heart

and shook me back to life

Dead to myself

I am resurrected.

Paddling to shore from waters too deep

Reconstructed

wrung out

from the shades of my prior destruction.
