Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Playing It

There is no such thing
as
safe

There is no magic spell
or secret hiding place
no arcane shield
or paranormal method

that protects us
in all our aspects
from every harm

But think of this

even if there were
if we were able
in this mortal coil
of breath and blood
to find a way
to be
safe

it would not be living

Only those in between
are
safe
and that’s just because
they are beyond
true joy or pain
and only carry
the echoes
of those things

If you ask them
they would tell you
that
safe
is not for us
that
safe
is not what life is for
that
safe
leaves you with nothing
but longing
when you watch
from where they are

Death is not
oblivion
but it has
a plethora
of
safe
