Binding Lessons

Grow! Grow!
You shouted,
As your fingers crushed
The delicate blossom.

Live! Live!
You screamed,
As your hands strangled
Away all the air.

Be glad! Be glad!
You insisted,
As your sneer wiped clean
A wisp of a smile.

Be light! Be light!
You demanded,
As your feet stomped out
Faint glow of embers.

Be full! Be full!
You commanded,
As your words emptied
Last crumbs from the bowl.
