It was one of those nights. I felt myself flying apart, had to break out of the box before I splatted against the wall. Better, I thought, to dissolve in moonlight than end as an impasto smudge on gray plaster.
And so I rode.
The wind flying in my face reminded me I was still alive; my legs pedaling kept me focused. There was no plan, no sure destination, just the desire to be whole, not a ragged mess of mismatched molecules. Time and distance became irrelevant.
When I became myself again I was in a wood I didn't recognize, tires crunching leaves fallen from autumn trees. I kept on until there was no more keeping on to do. The wood ended; I was staring at the sky, and in that blue ocean hung a ragged moon, weeping the tears I carried but could not cry.
I propped the bike between two trees and stood under that moon, silently blessing Diana for taking the sorrow I was unable to unburden, and after some unclocked passage of time headed back to my life, many memories lighter. ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
