Temples of You

Updated: Aug 7

Sky collapsed, inversion

I straddle you where you rise

we merge in liminal spaces

where darkness threatens light

I reach into your shadows, untethered

ancestral shorelines rage

cloaked lantern of nostalgia

mother wanes across the stage

Maternal waves wash languished dreams

hanging limp on grandma's bones

strewn polaroids, distorted

by tears you've cried alone

I dive a little deeper

rest while benthos burrow low

sublime light breaks through sediment

hidden depths I pray you’ll know

For this is where you hold her

most radiant star of all

a Venusian world of beauty

beneath your ocean floor.
