Dear Darkness

Dear darkness,

Wrap me in your love

In dreams I will never taste

In peace I will never know

In pain I will never forget

In hope I will never breath

And then when my heart completely breaks

When the tears fail to fall, not from stopping

But from no more rain

May you be content to go

Visit when the night has need of you

Come when the fierce day must sleep

And kiss me one last time

When my days are no longer long enough to count

Dear darkness, my love.


Little moths

Wax dripped over
Worn wood as silver waxed
And waned over aged edge
Dripping to softer thoughts
Of softer days
From time to time
Change flickered to fire
an ember retired
Crowned on wanted words –
Little moths flocked.
Little moths danced.
