The Bones Beneath

The Bones Beneath

Alyssa Diamond

Tonight I am laying to rest all the things I could’ve been.

Tonight I am burying their bones beneath tilled earth and rising to brush the grave soil from my skin to kiss their ghosts goodbye.

I am letting the white-silver wisps of them slip through my fingers because this time, I understand the past and the dead are gone.

Tonight I am watching flowers bloom in a garden of bones.

Tonight I am waking all the things I can become.
