Rebellious Love

REBELIOUS LOVE

I am living in the quiet between each heart beat
it’s a rebellious thing to love alone

I wonder out to show my wounds to the moon
she smiles
and seeps in through the cracks
where I bludgeoned my Self

she dawns her light
i hover
she casts her burning truths
my shadows crackle

tempting me with the glitter of my thoughts

when the discomfort breaks
I have a decision to make

let go and sink into my attraction to chaos?
the tail end of a tornado
through the sand
bewildered and wildly familiar
to a dry desert
barren and hot as fuck
I wonder
i realize
it was always just smoke and mirrors
my instincts were broken!
drawn from my jerking knees
what an elaborate hoax

so i stay
to talk to the moon
to face each grief
to listen to the trees
each broken piece
head on

riding the shocks like an earth quaking

the wind eventually breaks
the trees stop teaching
for a second it is calm

as I sit to prepare
I revel in the space between each heart beat
it’s a rebellious thing to love alone
