Realisation

By Charlotte Musgrove

 

Dawn of realisation

Electric clarity courses

through dusty memories

You were a product

of your environment

A person with fledgling

wings that never allowed

you to soar

I knew

You knew

That’s why I stayed so long,

but the acknowledgment

never came

Thank you

Thank you for showing me

what true fear and weakness

looks like

Terrifying

Painful

And so deeply lonely.

 

And so those memories dissipate

Appetite for understanding quenched,

They once again retreat

into the internal universe

of me.
