drown.

Drowning.jpg

Every once in a while

you find something that aids

in numbing the pain

 

Makes the dark easier to succumb to

Makes stars and street lights magical 

rather than your stumbling compass

on your way home

from momentary oblivion

 

Your deepest thoughts reside

as all the energy put into

living your double life is spent

You cannot be anything other than

taped-up collected pieces of what you recall in the sunshine

 

Time passes so slowly

the darkness swallows all shadows leaves you naked

unearthed

before you and the rest of the world

 

Where then do you look to?

The clock stays still at an hour

where silence can be heard

It almost feels like your back in the womb

 

Your heartbeat playing so loudly

as it lulls the silence into surrender

 

And there you are

 

Alone with your truest thoughts

deep inside the forest of your heart

Perhaps you’re waiting for a dream that might make sense

Maybe you realize too much

too soon and it’s too early

you cannot wait for dawn and light

to arrive and sing to you again

 

But until then

the night carries your secrets

and grace is waiting for you

on the other side

of this starry curtain.
