18/30 Burnished

there is a glitter in my step
a shine from within
a release of anxiety
I let flourish too long

the way my mind
seeks failure is frightening
I am still learning how to negotiate
with my heart
over matters that dig
into scars no longer scabbed
a constant exposure
an ouch
I try to ignore
then it blindsides me
makes me imagine
makes me over think the simple
remove the simple
nothing is simple
on those days
when I am spilled milk
a smear of taint
empty arms longing for contact

but today 
I am glitter
I am so shiny
I hurt my eyes
a smile lifting at the corner
in earnest
in truth
soaking up the sun

all of it
