alone in the dark
alone in the dark, waiting for the moon.
tonight, she leans in close
carefully parting the clouds, and says here,
hold this, I’ve brought you a small piece
of the sun as comfort against the night.
trust the light, she says, trust this moon
and these transcendent stars.
trust the return of the sun and the coming of dawn.
trust in the eventual dissolution of despair,
and the inevitable reawakening
of your own vast and radiant human heart.
