Conductor's Hands

January 16, 2009
By Lyndsay Hobbs, Saint Petersburg, FL

You are weak and torn with trembling
side effects.
The bones are no longer on the inside
but have broken through, making your
skin show in the least way possible.
You are dizzy and hard of breathing
with attacks that tear right through.
The water is no longer on the inside but has seeped through making you a pool of salinity in the clearest way
You are broken and scattered with only people from distances that try to mend.
The mind, it races but on a different track making your legs only as steady as your heart.
You are the symphony of bones and dry mouths awaiting its birth, but only prior to the conductor's hands.
