The Way We Move

Find me in the dark.
I have learned to befriend the shadows
and make them my own.
When the night pulls me apart,
pick up my bones
one by one.

 

                                                      (Silence,
                                                      that full emptiness
                                                      inside of me)

 

Lace your fingers through mine
gently,
not as if you’re hanging on-I will crumble-
gently,
the way you’d hold
your grandmother’s hand.

 

                                                       (Loneliness
                                                       is a tender creature.
                                                       A bird trembling in a snowstorm)


We will sink below the waves,
deep and heavy.
Perhaps this is where
we learn about our birth.

 

                                                       (Breathe,
                                                       it is only human.
                                                       We are nothing more than this
                                                       rising and falling)
