we risk a lot.
high fevers and febrile seizures.
early mornings and disrupted sleep.
panic and found.
never wanting to die too soon, to leave them.
blood and broken bones.
learning we have what it takes, learning our weakness
mistakes. many of those.
making-it marriages, season of loyalty losing passion.
tiredness in bones, weary day after dayness.
but we let ourselves.
we let them tame us.
it's miraculous and chaotic.
sparks and explosives. so fiercely.
and then subtle, an ease.
we can not imagine life without having been tamed.
we give way to it despite the risks. because of.
there is letting. there is being. ongoing.
