Love

submitted by Amara Charles Back

Out there somewhere

there is a love who will never dream

of saying you’re too much…

Who speaks, like you,

in poetry and candle wax and stardust…

Who runs outside on stormy nights to howl at the moon…

Who collects bones, skulls, feathers and tattoos

and sings incantations and communes with ancestors…

And that lover,

when you find him or her,

will see you and know you,

just as you are and just as you should be…

And they will say

Yes. Yes, you!

I will go there with you…

anywhere you want

into any light filled crack

or dark lurking shadow you have never shown

another soul

Yes!

By our guest poet Kalil

 

I have been waiting for this!
