the darker side of light

its been so long since I’ve cried
those wretched
acid tears
…how they burn inside

red ink cardinals
circling
spinning
frenzied
and once they stop
and find white page
they bleed my soul

so, am I cleansed?

I am empty

the stars must be shining
somewhere
not here

(there are though
fragments of rare beauty
blessed giving moments
when
daisies pop up
pushing my heart
as I take to pen
inspired
compelled
to write its resplendence)

despairing now
to write the pain
as soon…

I am so filled
with dirt
dizzy
I need to expel

makes me wonder when
the tomorrow I dream of
…and dread
will come

so…
those with wings
lift me
in time

while others
pull me down

and as I drown
I sense the light
my hairs
stand on end
and I am found

and I learn
indeed
I do own
suns and moons
as one shooting star
is spark

for I shine
when I light a path
for another

sometimes
this precious dawn
breaks night
through words

it is answer
enough

for it is so often here
I become aware

and without a sound
save the beat of my heart
the truth of these words

…hold me found…

the darker side of light
