A Bright Love / A Dark Break | Kelsey Writes
The hum of finding / the flicker in being found. The dimming of dusk / the great sigh of dawn. The hunger in poetry / the poetry in hunger. A world made from silkworms / a world made from lions. A soft start / a harsh ending. A swell of fondness for flight / a flood in the form of fear. In this universe, doves / in the next one, goldfish. A home in the heart / a heart in the home. A sky so pink / an earth red raw and burnt. The ache in leaving / the miracle in choosing to stay. A dog whimper / a raised voice. Arms moving through water / rain falling through trees. The calming of wolves / the fury of crows. Light hitting the body / body touching the light. What’s missing? / What’s left? Hands, everywhere / hands even counting the stars.
