Darkness begins

Darkness begins
when the appreciation of love
falls away

it settles upon us
becomes a comfort
a knitted shadow
a perfect fit

We never truly believe
never quite fully
in the life of love
for to do so would negate
the existence of life

and there is the darkness
whispering
its secrets

A darkening fear

‘pon a misty morn
I woke to see
nought but shadows
of a life to be

brewing here within
caught is a storm
a tempest of
love’s blossoming form

‘pon this heart of man
it grows so strong
a darknening
fear of sunset’s song

for shadows rising
and love’s form thine
I can do nought
but break your heart, mine

Release

as moonlight brightens my path
it strengthens the moment
causing a little sensation
to become
something other

as soon as those clouds
as soon as it is gone
the moon, in hiding
releases its halo

I take a step
which causes a little sensation
in the darkness
for here I am
becoming something other.

A swarm of sunlight

A swarm of sunlight
from a crack in the fluid grey
strikes the surface

One after the other
each particle of light
stings my eyes

Looking up I see trees bending
as the clouds rush on by
temporarily closing the door

My eyes hold the ghosts
and as the wind whistles its darting song
the swarm returns to burn through

Distance and time
reveals itself in the smallest of moments
when we feel the heat

Maybe the darkness
intensifies the desire
of and for the buzz
