Light and Rainbows

Imagine me

so completely

consumed by you,

it’s like I was never

here at all.

Fragments,

only dust

and motes

in the sunlight,

remaining of me.

 

My whole world is you.

Don’t you lie to me.

I have rested

on your breast,

nestled in your fissures,

healed you when I cut you,

raised you to the Sun,

burned your effigy

and cried out loud

that I was never

enough for you.

 

Back when I existed,

I was just a fly

on the wall

of your life.

I was just a kite

in your sky.

 

I never believed

you would destroy me,

but some gnawing truths

eventually hit the bone.

 

You carried me away.

A river, at once kind

and throttling.

Choking

and drowning

in the nurture.

Soothing in the lazy bends.

 

No more ways

I can describe you.

Harvester of my soul

and reaper constant.

I spread my arms wide,

ran to embrace you

and I never returned

again.

 

Such it is;

the way of light and rainbows.

Neither are the thing;

the rain has passed

and the sun burns

hot as ever.

Everything is consumed

in this;

even the world.
