Short Piece - 'Subconscious Awakening'
Subconscious Awakening By Karla Yesenia Lopez
Drinking the blood of Christ.
Every sin becomes vivid.
The half-filled cup becomes the liquor of awakening.
The suppressed epiphanies roll out like a telegram.
In the fine print, the illusions become clear as a Summer day.
Every non-existent cloud diminishes and the bittersweet realization becomes sweeter.
Each body ache and sleepless night diminishes in an instant.
Self-love appears tangible.
Rebirth immerses in the long days that appear to never end.
