un-becoming

nestled in the corner cushion

cold feet tucked under my legs 

head resting on a pillow

awake yet dreaming


i am wild, free to be

whole, in love with me

no longer in need of the old words:

(selfish . . . too much . . . liar . . . not enough . . .)


here: 

I   Am   Whole


still reality calls me home

but as i un-dream

i un-become
