Just So You Know

Just so you know

it is bigger than you think

it’s more than just smoke in the air

filling my space

when I breathe in

I hold on

to so many memories

run and hide

flight or flee

that I can’t escape 

time hasn’t changed

a captive struggling

to get away and be free

I sense danger

even though,  rationally,I know

but it still makes me feel

the same as I did

way back then

real as real as it can be

my sacred space


and I won’t  hold

my breath

be a captive

struggling to get away

ever again

just so you know

it’s more than you think.
