Return flight

You squeezed my heart
It screamed dark
No breath, sense or gesture
could make me feel my truth

Captured in an invisible net
of tissue filaments
Organic from an insect
My throat was hijacked
Out of control
Without resistance
I gave my inner soul

From this quiet place
deep inside
No strip of light
No strength for flight
Grows something
small and blue
Coming home
(Not) for you
