relief

it’s as though a part of your self

a part of your body was 

that deep down 

underneath skin 

underneath muscle

it’s like a part of your mind

part of where you get stuck

where you come to every time 

it’s as though there is a 

knot

or a seed

or a pit

or something that becomes caught

growing keeps developing around it

it makes it smooth until

it is so refined that you think it’s 

just another curve or bend

no

it’s a seed

but then if it somehow becomes dislodged

becomes unstuck

it is removed

and though it may feel like 

something is missing at first

the feeling then comes

ah 

this 

is 

so much better

than before
