Spirit

The spirit you conjure
Can will itself to create anything
To spin the verses of our bodies into existence
To bring back the silence and relinquish the sound
Of our souls crying out for more
Than tears and doubt
And broken dreams
We wish to be claimed
And discovered
Rewritten

The red sea of your island
Blood
Parts truths waters wide open
Revealing that wounds can run much deeper
Than water can cut
Deeper
Than the surface can ever hold on to
Deep into the depths of pain and poetry
That continuously washes us over
You swim in the lyrics of waves

And we drown in your vast emotions
This sweeping current too heavy to keep us steady

But you
Hands opened to the world
Choose to take it all as ink
The water
The chaos
The ocean of our hearts
Spilling it out to fill us in
We the vessels
Taking in this fertile soil
Where once you planted notions
That even in this brave and lonely existence

We struggle together
We breathe together
And in one moment
One line
One poetically connected movement
We can take in
The universe
The sound
The word
The ever present light
That affects us beyond
A sorrow
Deeper than the deepest ocean
And a love brighter than darkest night
