velvet moon

like a dream you wander
through the side of you
that gathers shadows best

but it’s in the time
in between moments
that scratch at you
and die off as ashes,
your secret revealed
when i sleep

your path is you, you know
so follow it

also absolutely

as it seems… there is a you
that experiences something other
like a wave with its ocean,
or a particle of air with its vast space
as if you, the wave
join with the other, the ocean
and yet,

also absolutely
something larger
now

a deeper order

create me like i created you
in the space
which lies deeper than you know

it is where, you see,
i first found
the concept of your
decision
to think outside your unexpected life
and roar instead

impactful.
