Trust (Poem)

TRUST

It choked it out of me,
A year ago…
Sat on my chest
Slapped me in the face
My own tears in my nostrils,
Drowing me.

It buried me:
My deep, deep fear
And I lay in the dark
Under the rubble
Of my caved-in life.

At first, muffled,
The voices came
Calling out
Scraping
Digging
Until you dragged me out
From beneath that massive weight
And your tears of relief
Washed clean lines
In my dust-caked face.

I stand here, among you,
Still dazed,
But I can breathe now.
