Rock Bottom

there's a comfort in the sadness
a quiet longing in the happiness
that can only come from knowing
there is no place further down to go.

there's a sanctity in the depression
and repression
of the unwanted emotions.
they only surface when the sunlight
shines bright enough
for them to grow too

manifesting into something larger than
what is comfortable
at the bottom of a hole
only large enough
for one person
to grow.
