Within the swimming night

Within the swimming night

I can make out

Your

Open heart

Bound by the moon

With its silver arms

Leaning into the window

With hands extended

So that my soul can step out

Of its paralyzed shell

To greet your

Darkness

With its one broken

Wing.

We have the Night Shadows all around us

We have the night Shadows all around us
Stir not by me today
Let them come and sleep beside me
Like water sleeps in the rain

Close not your hand against what is frozen
For it will also one day become yours
But wrap your light so carefully around it
Like you wrap yourself around me

Do not think you can solve the knots in the wild weeds
But let your riddles be solved in me
Let us grow together wildly
Like streams grow wild in the sea

Clothe dark woods in the secrets you keep
But let your snow be draped around me
You can leave your feet bare against the stones and the mud
As you can leave your heart bare in my keep
