Back to Center

My heart

ran away with me.

Somehow I have to reel

it back in -

make a boat

of emotions running wild,

sail it on a sea of tears

back to my center -

take refuge in the eye

of the storm surrounding me,

gauge what's real

and what isn't,

strengthen my muscles

in preparation

for a journey

beyond the storm

I face.
