Benign Release

Encased in its hardened shell, it grows

Patience and time it’s lifeblood

Sitting in silence, waiting not wanting

No rush for air or breath of light


Layer upon layer in time

A pearl of a different making

Not dangled on necks nor lobes

Weighing heavy, out of sight


Carved out, released from hiding

Scars left behind in its wake

Benign whispers lay softly down

Dripping reminders of another day
