pl

my feet sunk into the moist white sand
the moon illuminated
engulfing the sky with its fluorescence
that night it talked to me so quietly
through the breeze, it sung
taking on a different form
the reflection on the horizon calmed me
the smell of the sea consumed me
in that moment, i felt safe

through rage and despair
i could always go to them
knowing both would put my mind
in a trance of ecstasy
this was my rapture
this is home

The Root of all Life

me
there are people like alcohol
deceiving, transient,
addicting yet dissatisfying
leaving you with wreckage
they can only show you momentary joy
before poisoning you and reducing you into ash
allowing you to set your soul ablaze

then there are people in this world like water
pure and magnificent, soft with strength
moving mountains with patience
they will cleanse and nourish you
quenching your soul’s thirst
they will speak miracles to you

remember this love.
when you need to replenish your soul
and you’re tired of the carnage of the poison
find water among the contamination
