‘Til I Become a Husk of My Being

I’m letting all out–

Speak ’til I’m out of words,
Shout ’til my voice runs out,
Cry ’til I’m out of tears.
Give ’til I’m all spent.

Adjust ’til I’m bent
Hate ’til can’t
Hurt ’til I’m numb
Care ’til I don’t.

Sing ’til all songs run out of melodies
Remember all things ’til they fade from my memories
Mourn every bitterness ’til I’m all over them
Celebrate good things ’til I can finally relive them.

All these and more,
‘Til I become an empty shell of myself
A husk of the former me
Where a new one– a better one
May breathe into being
