A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

intruder

into that dark chasm

where you reside

let the sun undress your spirit

with wafts of shine

and love

and bat your eyelashes in victorious illusion

 

because it all might become

a real smile.

Ooooh, I like this one. Mysterious and compelling. It's early in the AM for me, so I may not yet be grasping your entire meaning here just yet, but I'll be sure to revisit this one later. Cheers Jacob.
