for a rape victim

for michelle

in your baby steps
the little measures you 
took to make a life
i see you shining
the light you bear
makes my breathe white
my eyes glisten
the slow singing of sirens
is not audible
i think about living
instead of dying

because if you can live
with all you bear
and still break open
a cold new morning
then nothing we've spoken of
wept or whispered in the dark
can erase the vindication
of creating light
of ending the silence
and the warm embrace
of rebirth awaits you
