The Night Held Close

Tonight I write to you dark whisper

Tonight I take you in your chaos and hold onto the nightmare to tell you,

you are no different

No different than me

Than we

Yet your bright eyes tell me you are unique in reasoning and the touch of you I crave knowing tomorrows light would show all to be just as grave

For I am nothing without moonlight

I am nothing without the liquid of fermented earth

I am only the telling of the you I see

The touch craved

The night held close

The hearts grave spotted.
