Outstretched – A Poem by Brandon White

Hello Friends,

A new free verse piece waits below. Feedback is always appreciated. Enjoy.


Outstretched:

The dull ache
of my lower back
is an alarm ringing
that I brush off
as a test

There’s a cure to this
tension readily available,
and a ghost
that calls
to be free

If I turn
to the right too quickly,
I see a million stars
before I lose
my breath

The pain echos
up my spine and radiates
out to the tips
of my outstretched
fingers,

reaching up to a heaven
that never reaches
back


-Brandon White
