Stillness

STILLNESS

I close my eyes and I breath into
black
where a moonless night
bleeds solitude
where obscurity permeates
haunted corners
where demons feast on the loneliness of
little girls

her angst jolts awake
my nerves
I want nothing more than to rush towards the trickling
glitter
to dance with distractions
to suffuse her fear with the
winds of fury and burning thought

I fight the urge
I stay
to swim in the murky unknown
to dig deeper

stillness settles into my
bone of burdens
time evaporates

eventually
there is light

.
