Consumption

your darkness sings to mine

hidden

for safekeeping

I don’t feed her

but

sometimes

I let her play

glorying in the power

beautifully shining

inviting your’s to the dance

come along

come along

licorice dreams

sweet

salty

all consuming

until it is time to sleep again

and you find your darkness

gone

Wherever You are Sat

I sit here

always on a cusp of something

learning to not fear the falls

the sudden upsweeps

being

wrapped up the in the patchwork of my life

quilted together

love foremost

thoughts, people, places

stitched together with courage and tears

I sit here

unafraid

all jangling awkward nerves

the perpetual teenager

ripened into something

myself, I think

wading through the slivered edge

in life’s venn diagram

past and present overlapped

circles upon circles

refracting and reflecting

I sit here

being the gold at the end of my own rainbow
