Pulse

http://www.trbimg.com/img-5760ad48/turbine/os-orlando-pride-stand-united-with-pulse-shooting-victims/600/600x338:

I do not have words.

I have only feelings

swirling around

like moth wings in blenders

    bloody and broken

still fluttering

when you take your finger

off of the button.

_________________________________________________

And there are millions

of blenders spinning

around me

with millions of moths

that keep beating their wings

because they cannot give up

as long as they have a pulse.

*Author’s Note: Orlando is my home. In the wake of what has happened here, we have seen a community come together to love and assist one another when we have needed it most. The countless displays of support from around the world have touched me in ways I cannot describe. This has been an emotionally trying week but I believe we will not only make it through this but will emerge stronger and more unified than ever before.
