To be light Has always been so foreign to me. I think I only know depth. Even when I’m high, **** is it heavy. My lines between pleasure and pain are thin. You know when the love is so **** good it hurts? Like it’s breaking you open Shattering you Into something new. I am comfortable under the dark moon And understand the things that are meant to be colored yet come in black Like shadows They are a friend of mine I like their shape and ambiguity How they show that light shines darkness, too Sometimes I stay awake at night Just to be with it It’s stillness and silence entice me I don’t think I came from the sky, Maybe I am from deep within the Earth Cradled in the warm darkness of her womb & waters Maybe I am from the ash of the Fire in her core.
