Day 631:

my mother learned to jump her way to stillness
we know
she wanted
her children
grown strong
but we failed
so instead
she wished for the night to release her

she waited while her sky shattered into fireflies to be freed
felt her
skin dissolve
into atmosphere
i found her at the bottom of it all
as decisions
where she left
all her love
all her failure
now mine
to hold
