Weaving New

by Gracy Judith   Sep 28, 2020

There’s a surging
under her skin—
a bending rain dance
of new beginnings.
She finally dares to peel back
the layers of him she wore
without thought.
The lingering of him
must die—
in defiance, she buries it
where secrets never hide.
She no longer
disguises her ill-fated choices
with metaphors.
She no longer hides her fears
in the panic room of her chest.
She has rinsed
old bones of regret
and is now weaving
new dreams
old skin.

    "Weaving new dreams under old skin..." Incredibly poignant ending. I think we all like to hope for new dreams...I feel this line speaks of fresh beginnings no matter the past they have to dig their way out of.
