As a Doornail

By Imgy

Five minutes to …
Write,
Talk,
Speak,
Open up,
Dare greatly
To be vulnerable,
To let the thoughts out, the ideas out,
Let the …
Emotions express.

Ripples,
Waves,
Caves,
Deep dark scary
Memories.
So many, so much inside …
I don’t know If I’m ready to find.
But if it’s …
IN my way —
I want it OUT.

Out of the way of success.
Out of the way of finding myself.
Obliterated.
Extinguished.
Dead.
As a doornail.
With wild and wondrous abandon.
I want to be f r e e
From the chains of shame.
Period.

Free from
Feeling like the prey,
The weakling
He convinced me I was,
He convinced me to be.
I want to feel
Like the free spirit
God created me to be
Before that monster
Pushed and kicked and stuffed

My courage and my open heart
Into a tiny little
Three inch
By three inch
Prison.
I’m clausterphobic in here.
It hurts.
I can’t breathe.
It’s completely
Smothering.
