The Falls

let your soul breathe.
let it blow away the broken pieces 
that dig down deeply
into your fragile heart
and scarred hands.
let your heart beat,
let it pulse wildly as it drowns out
the crashing sound of untamed water.
feel the earth move beneath you,
feel it spinning 
as you stand still and steady
though your life sways violently 
like a small boat in the middle 
of a war of fighting waves.
let your hopes sink 
into your heavy lungs.
breathe them in like fresh, cool ocean air
as the misty breeze tangles 
through your hair 
like iridescent streamers. 
let your held-in feelings sink
into the arms of the waterfall
as they hit the slippery rocks
and submerge beneath the river,
washing away the pain
that has flooded your mind
for far too long.
