I want to learn how to pray.
A simple mind
trusting in a single light
that you can't see with open eyes
I am led in myriad directions by flashes in the haze
Paths lit up for a second
Pale lights illuminating so many words
Where is the single light?
Where is the ground?
I am a hazy figure reaching through walls
I float over the earth and I cannot plunge my fingers into wet soil.
My thoughts are abstract,
I cannot reach into the soil and grasp specifics.
A single light in a single moment, illuminating one place,
And my hands gripping earth
A word that shoots into the heart and rocks you, reverberates in your ribcage
A light that shines not on the path ahead but bursts from my heart to show me I can walk
You see yourself lit up and it illuminates everything.
I have to trust that you can see me,
When I can't see myself and I can't see you.
I have to trust that you are there shooting sounds into my heart,
And I will try to listen.
