sensitivity

by Skyfire   Dec 15, 2021


is like a small fish
keen to changes
in your current
a constant alertness
for the presence of
danger

nuanced
like the rippling
of fins.

    I love how sensitive this piece is itself, if that makes sense. It's such a unique simile, and there's a vulnerability in one's own self-awareness and trying to understand even the smallest change, and ride that current. So much said in this in only a few lines!

    A well thought out metaphor for sensitivity that hits the nail on its head. Milly x
