  I AM I AM       When you are one    the dark comes easily    you give it a name     like “Abequa”       Writhing in the sheets    you touch lips       wandering through the night    you hold hands       her tears run down     into your mouth    you drink them in    remembering the ocean       how it felt to float there    suspended in time    only you    lonely you       

I AM I AM

 

When you are one

the dark comes easily

you give it a name

like “Abequa”

 

Writhing in the sheets

you touch lips

 

wandering through the night

you hold hands

 

her tears run down

into your mouth

you drink them in

remembering the ocean

 

how it felt to float there

suspended in time

only you

lonely you

 

 

 

Through self portraiture and writing, I am able to process the darkness that comes in waves throughout this life. Without the dark there is no light, and by giving it a name, I learn to listen and create from that space, instead of running from the discomfort.
