Star Light

Colours of the dark, a gentle tug,
An undertow.
Come down, I'm lonely already,
Let's walk away and never wake
Again at night. Let's walk. Just that.
Friends of mine have hidden in themselves,
Let's hide there too. Peace is a gift.
Bind your soul in lyric whisper,
Hold it to your breast and
Keep it warm. And keep it safe.
I wish sometimes. Just to see
If I remember how.
It's too late now to learn the
Words of prayer, it's enough to put
Two fingers to my chest. Just hold them there.
Friends of mine saw heaven in my eyes.
I blinked. The fields of footsteps
Which I sow are bountiful this year;
I pace the acres, stepping through
The shadows of a darkness in the earth.
