some days i can't see past the heat


but some days i see into it.
some days i embrace it.
walk across its coals in bare feet,
feel the hot pinpricks of healing
and throw my arms open wide in welcome.

trial by heat.

  4. You live with the heat beautifully. I'm afraid I would just whine. You make it beautiful.
