Stare

Stare

A Poem by Natalie

I open the blinds

Another reminder that you are here

I watch you fall upon the earth

I hear you sing.

Oh, your presence soaks the ground I walk on and

I sink, and I crave.

You are,  every love

And it rains, and it rains

Tell me how can I contain these words inside me?

How can I explain  with words at all

That your eyes shadow the earth

That you lie with me every night at the foot of my bed

Whispering.

All is not full of pain

All is not full of suffering


I can walk through your blood and come out clean.

In the rain and in dry land you can never leave.

Holy.
