The dark scares me more now than it ever did I don't know why Fear comes up again The night is more vivid now Vision more alive Is that why Light being You tried to hide and run from me But I still see I feel before I witness
The stomach churns sometimes The body seems to slip away I feel the drift . . .
I use to sneak down as a kid My body could walk even if I was sleeping Safe to take myself back to bed
As a baby vivid memory Could not escape my crib Morning came awake in the middle of them Care givers ether side
Later memory Unable to rest A window display Goldfish swim in the invisible water The flow makes my lids heavy and low Relaxing to the night Swimming into peace
Even now if in a place of disharmony When eyes stream and dreams feel out of reach A hand holds out for me Feeling the fingers lace my own A warm comfort even in agony The softness caresses skin and bone Love is home
