Stress

That point when you're constricted;
your shoulders are unimaginable knots 
thoughts blow in and out of your head 

the end is the beginning 
or is the beginning the end? 
tears linger in your throat 

the cliff is in view 
banshee screams echo 
silently scratching, 
they leave invisible marks 

But your eyes slowly open 
to an ocean horizon 
and the pain melts away 

that point when you are calm 
your shoulders unhinged by the Sun
stress soothed by the waves

Thoroughly enjoyed Melani "banshee screams echo" is my favorite. Though in Gaelic Folktales banshee presages death, banshee means flute in our language. But both are very special symbols.You have shown consummate skill of using your words. Thanks. Hugs! ---rajat
