I Am

I Am

A Poem by Shelly Braen

My return from the abyss.


I am that I am,

I live in lunacy,

I live in love,

I perpetuate the awfulness of it all,

Shining until it turns into beauty,

I am the soul of you,

I am the brink of destruction,

And the filler of redemption,

The statue that watches,

The vines that cradle,

The blue that haunts your sleep,

I will fight for your life,

And destroy my own,

I am humiliation,

The sound of the night’s cry,

I am the thrum of every heart,

And the thunder in the silence,

I am the price you pay,

The breath that stops,

The eyes that close,

And the head that turns away,

I come from everywhere,

Yet I have been nowhere,

And never the less,

I seemingly find everything,

Everything of yours,

The world,

In my world,

And where fixation never lies,

I am forever and never,

In this iron fascination,

Tumbling on quills,

Divine flora and fauna,

The unceasing redemption,

I am that I am.
