My Soul by Ember Ward 英语诗歌

  by Ember Ward




    When I feel like I'm going to fall apart


    I hold my ribs, all the way around,


    Both sides.


    My ribs hold me together,


    Like glue.


    They keep my breath close to my heartbeat.


    They keep my soul from escaping and


    Leaving me, grounded.


    I hold brightness and shadows in


    The hollow where my ribs meet.


    I hold them there in the memories


    Of slow, sorrowful music and


    Porch steps.


    I hold my ribs, until I feel solid.


    Until my legs are tree trunks and


    My fingers are fruit.
