Touching the light

Touching the light

 

You touch the gold in me

The underneath

The shimmering bright

 

Sometimes it’s quiet

In my heart

Sometimes suicidal

But you touch the light

 

Embracing every prickly soul

Every angry thought

Each cold day

I grow closer to my goal

 

Of never reaching the up or over there

Just being here

Clear

Not being whole

And not minding at all
