“crack underneath”
completed on 12.15.15

the sliver of the moon
trying to pierce the night
because it’s better to go out fighting
than be swallowed by the dark

the winding road underneath
dimly lit, covered in sleet
struggling to thaw, attempting to freeze
the change a couple degrees could make

so maybe this is karma
for stealing the sun once underneath
the wind once meant to fill his sail
oxygen too thin for the two of us
the death of everything around us

whether you’re clawing out a landslide
or feeling the ice crack underneath your weigh
the uncertainty is the only thing clear
fighting for composure versus everything you fear

the fog of ambiguity
too dense to see the way out
your fear of the unknown
the death of everything you’ve known

the weight of life’s expectations
pressing my face underwater
too suffocating to breathe
gasping for what’s underneath

so maybe this is karma
for pushing the tide against it’s own
and you hate yourself
for life granting a brand new day
don’t let yourself get in the way
