indi Poetry

take me to the storm

you take your eyes all the way to the storm

and let me reside in it

homeless have i walked roads unknown

a step removed from each step

unawakened eyes untried faces masks

of never going all the way anywhere

as if eternity were to be glimpsed

from a safe and sure distance

eternity. was it even sought

as the sound of here grew echoing loud

all echoes from every other world cut out

in the dead silence where half storms brew

to be quickly snuffed out ere fire is born

and so it is, on and on and again and another

unawakening bound and neatly trimmed by

never going all the way anywhere

and i walked in this half world of mine

then you took your eyes all the way to the storm

and let me resurrect in it
