Consideration Pause.

Tunnelling out
up past the debris
the dark and the drowned
to where we can emerge again.
A sanctity of rebirth,
the rarest of second lives.
This gift a consideration pause
granted and taken.
This failure journey
through the expectation curse of normal
a fight for a space to pray
unheaven or holy.
Beliefs fleeing daybound
taken by the hiss and the tick.
But now, surfacing for the next,
a memory of warmth.
