Darkness, Dawn



Evaporate

Something has happened and I am no longer
your have to have. You have faded like
light. I worry too much and not enough,
and the past gazes without mercy. I have
often told stories to mark the place,
the moment when everyone spoke in tongues,
descent, arise, wake. But what of the moments
that do not have this? What about you so
beautiful even as you leave me? Darkness,
dawn, it’s all the same since the change.

What a lovely poem!

Great piece. The power of poetry is often how it suggests more than the words themselves can encompass. From this poem, a great example is: "the moment when everyone spoke in tongues,"

"Something has happened and I am no longer your have to have . . .

What about you so beautiful even as you leave me?

Darkness, dawn, it's all the same since the change."

I know this - so familiar, I feel this so deeply.

Beautifully expressed and versed, Michelle.

I love this.
