Let gravity have you

Rather than a resistance

Find it pulling and clasp its hands

And in place of an empty spirituality

Take the truth of

Loving your wounds

It means giving up false promises

Those white lies we tell ourselves

It means no advice

No one line answers

Just miles and miles

Of thought

Empty, stretching out

And gravity can take you there

Because being willing to own

Your pain

Means being ready

For the healing tide.
