i have renovated in recent yearsMature

I have renovated in recent years -

breaking down the barriers that have kept me
isolated, tormented, frenzied, skittish
for so long.

I look back on the ache and hunger of longing

like a fond memory; the listlessness
escapes me now, dispersing like fog
beneath the rising sun.

I remember the glory of turmoil.

The brilliance of triumph.

They hang in the back of my throat
like old syllables I never let out and
have recklessly forgotten. 

The End
