Sitting By the Abyss

Stay long enough and she reaches into you

Cracks open hard places
Shakes loose the illusions of power
Summons kinship through salty tears
Smooths out the edges and the anger

Who says you always need to be confident, driven, sure of yourself?

I am truly nothing beside you
Yet more alive than in dreamtime
If I wake before I die
I’ll ask you again to test my eyes

For now, she washes away
The weights and pains of yesterday

I’ll visit you in my mind
So to seek and surely find

Being here is the only place
To escape the tired noisy space
