between skitter scratching anxiety

And deep calmness


Incredible frustration

And satiation





Stasis shackled

I wait




Emotions compressed

By anticipation and fears

Heightened by faith


The cage doors are all open

The lions have all fled

My demons have left the building

Driven off by promises

Of the release that lies ahead
