Loose The Arrow

Holding Back for Too Long

Time to loose the arrow in my bow

Time to see how it hits the target because I’ve been holding it back for way too long now

Watch how it flies, I’m Robin Hood

I saw two fish swimming in a pond of clear water

They were giant and red and looked like floating embers in the glassy surface

And I thought, go as deep as they do… you can breathe under water after all…

I saw a vortex of light

Sucking down the strands of blackness that held me

I was stronger than them, so they broke away and left me

vulneralble and raw but oh so powerful
