2 am

waking from deep slumber

world heavy on my heart

and yet I feel an ember warm

and glowing in the dark

I didn’t know it lived there still

I did not know it lived

as though perhaps it’s spark

was doused, not able to be lit

as if that day I’d lost all hope

salt tears flooding my eyes

when standing there beneath the tree

I made such compromise

my world so surely rent apart

and then reformed anew

and I thought then, as I do now

of something quite like you

with heart outside my chest I stand

my sleeve a bloody mess

the beating drum of sudden starts

and sudden, lovely, rests

I do not know from whence this came

or where my feet will go

but in the warm and gathering dark

an ember burns and glows
