open up this box im in

pull the paper out,

find me on the bottom of

just rattling about.

hold me up to sunlight as you

untie shaking hands,

gently spread those stiffened legs

from shameful, cutting bands.

smooth the creases from my skin

the rope from ’round my heart,

gently disassembling years

and taking pain apart.

see tear filled eyes, that open wide

as they look up at your face,

and feel the life inside me now

that i have found my place.
