I won’t have claws and nails here

When I’m turned up to thunder, savouring the flash of fury in my fists, I am furthest from myself. Wrists bending, threatening to break in the grip of this fight, flesh still singing with the sting of that blow. The wake of this will still stand right here in the morning.

This time won’t be any different. And that’s the difference. She thinks he will change. He knows that his white knuckles – single white roses in a field of red – are his most desperate attempt to grab a hold of himself. He will not change.

I recount in slow motion. Any faster and my head starts to spin (sin, thin white lies, despise, disguise). My demise will be my own fists poised to strike and break the wrists that bend and the bones that breathe life here.

This hurt has held too long too much with its fingers around my heart. It has fueled my own fire, my flash, my fists. It has to go. It has to let go. I can’t grow if it won’t go. Go. Go. Go. God. Go.

I won’t have claws and nails here. Fury be gone. Love, come on, let go. Go. Go. Go. God. Go. Gone.
