Lullabies

IMG_4444

When the truth settles into your bones,
when the earthquakes finally
stop shaking your heart empty,
you will be left with
the aftershock.
This is the aftermath.
The lullabies you sing
under your breath to help yourself fall asleep.
The moving on.
The heavy, heavy price that comes
with knowing. ―Anthea Yang/ constellations from home
