Let this moon be only a reflection
Of that timeless part of you.
Let its silvery essence
Wash over you like mercury.
In viscous yet fluid light
It is yearning to bathe your soul
In the peace of a fresh promise.
Promises resonating like echoes
Whispering, “hush, hush…”
Feel those echoes speak.
Which begs not to be guided
Which screams to stay in the dark
Allow the child you once were
The child who loved the water
That eager child
Who is now thrashing within you
Begging for freedom
Aching for relief—
To be soothed by its grey echoes
Find solace in the highest of tides
For the deep, dark waters that threaten,
Have the greatest power to heal.
Waves like breath of silver
Undulating your world
Rhythmically rocking you away
From the torment of your shores
