the island sticks to you

June 12, 2017

the humid air is hard to breath

 

my lungs are heavy

 

lightheaded

i float into the spaces between

where does the dream really begin and end?? 

 

awakening

it just continues…. 

 

here, i feel and see and sense more

like a deer in the woods

 

there is no gravity to weigh me down

 

the different layers of myself work together

processing

healing 

relinquishing

 

letting go of the stories i’ve told myself 

the stories i’ve created to 

 

create me…

the layer i see when i look in the mirror

or hear my own voice

 

in truth

the real me… beyond the bones is 

 

ready

to set the stories free with the wind 

soak them in the salt of the ocean

 

it cleanses me from skin to soul

rocking me in its rolling waves

 

when i leave its embrace my body still remembers

 

it continues to float 

as buoyant on the whites sands as it was in the water

 

it remembers

 

what is beyond this skin...

lifetimes of 

 

sunsets, oceans, magic, stars

 

 

as i lie down to rest at the end of the day

to live in the other side of the dream for awhile

the island's little love notes remind me…

 

the moist air

that love,

stuck to me in the sweet sweat of my pores
