Two Short Poems by Kelli Gavin

 

Above It All

You’ve been elevated
Above it all
You have been placed
In a position
Above it all
The rest doesn’t matter
It is just background noise
I may have placed you there
To protect you
To make sure no one else
Could ever touch you
Hurt You
Take you
From Me
Above It all
Stay there
You’ve been elevated
Above it all

Impact

When you brace for the impact
You don’t experience the whole effect
Your muscles tighten and eyes squint
Hands balled into fists
Feet press down on invisible breaks
You hurt yourself more than anything
Maybe you should embrace the impact
Fully take it all in wanted or not
Accept every last bit coming your way
Take a hold of the good and the bad
Release what isn’t needed
The impact will come sooner or later
Choose to embrace rather than brace
