small stones – March 29, 2016


for years, I carried you
felt the unbearable weight
of each burden you brought
lugged you from relationship
to relationship, to solitude
and still you crushed me

now you are a stepping stone
I place you beneath my feet
tread upon your back
allow you to feel the weight
of joy and love
depression, I own you!
