The Year Of Healing

With your back resting
On Demerara sand
Pools of sunwarmed water
Collecting beneath your shoulders
You start to lift
Weightlessness taking over
The tide drawing in
Embraces you, lifting
The engravings of pain
Etched over the year
Leaving you smooth
Free from the barcodes of the publicly abused
Your head falls back
Your hair fanning
Golden seaweed
Calm, weightless and free
The sun strengthening you
Finally reaching your core
