Night #2

I have started within you,
The night within me
The early stillness
That has reached the border
Behind my eyes
And nestles in the dusk
And unknown.

Who are you to me then?
But that which
Gentleness had left unbidden
Against my sleeping door?

Which way should I bring you back?
From drowning tempests,
All claiming you as their own
To control, to collapse
To absorb and let be?

What part of you remains at the surface?

I’ve awaited the sun too long.
The beat of life and passionate ember.
And you
Shall always be night.
Untouched in its fragrant calm,
Nothing more calls out to you
Than shadows in their own dark sorrow.

Night #2
