Part your lips.

Part your lips.

The floodgates are open
run your cords raw
shatter the decaying constructs
of rotting scaffoldings
preserved barely on pickled tongues.

Part your lips
let Spring come through
speak your truth
live your truth
let the warm blood
coursing through you
resonate with your
wildest ridiculous dream
love impossibly
laugh infectiously
It is truly a privilege
to be throbbing with life!

  1. This is beautiful, Rafia! I really loved how you started the second stanza and the way you’ve packed such wise words with so much power is amazing. It is indeed a privilege to be throbbing with life ❤
