Exhale

a mélange of layers
begin twirling in glory
beneath the blooming
petals of a love found
trailing behind
the passing mirage
plastered with pressures
and sealed with fear.

a love pure as water
held in the hands
of an ageless spirit
guiding a young me
deep into the pool
of reflection.

where I find
the many masks
that make up me
dancing in layers
as my petals form
I join with love.
