NaPoWriMo 2012 day 19




i have forgotten where i am from
forgotten that real heat goes beyond
skin deep
sinks into the soul
and radiates outwards

forgotten what it is to have the hurt
not be much
as it is absorbed by layer upon layer
of kin
reducing its force to dust

i have forgotten how to step
to this rhythm
shake sadness to the bone
roll, bob and flow on proud beats
in time with no surrender to it

little wonder, then
that every day is spent
flustered, frustrated
how can i find the way home
when i'm still so lost?
