Siren – Jessica Michael

Foxglove Journal are one of the best places to read new writing!

Foxglove Journal

There is an ache like oceans

emptying themselves of everything but salt.

I walk the bottom,

cut my feet with wandering,

I fear her reckless chasms

and keep going.

Because for years

I thought I had a choice

in who and what and how I loved

when the only choice I ever had

was if I loved at all.

Here I am,

singing music to call the sea to shore.
