The Extasy of Being

Before, I travelled through life
on a lofty pedestal of numbness.
Then, the tower came down,
as it had to,
as it was intended.

Now, from the rawness of vulnerability
can I experience it all,
the good, the bad, the ugly,
the layers and complexities,
the array of human emotion,
the subtleties of the senses.
The terrible and the beautiful existing simultaneously.

Heart wide open,
Body allowing, heaving,
Releasing tears and laughter.
The ecstasy of being.
