One Step In The Dark

Oceans pool in the clouds
rain collects on hot skin
find the known conspiracies
and piece them together as a puzzle
make do with the
awkwardness of your wisdom.
gather the moon in a reflecting dish
at morning if possible
and wish your dreams
above fair greetings
rake up what's left of your
stolen bravery and take
your beauty in one hand
and your shy in the other
then with that feed on the
rest of your enlightenment
write a poem
for everytime you do
you leave a little
piece of yourself
in every one
but a poem is not all of you
it is just parts of you
gather the words on this page
and fit them together to create
your own particular tomorrow
