Moth

moth CaraMiaBella The Art of Carrie Wachter Martinez
Dwelling in the twilight for so long
You forget how dark it is
Your eyes have adjusted to an absence of light and its “ok”
“I’m ok”.
Really….
One day a glimmer appears and you’re drawn to it
moth like
your steps turn without realizing
seeking
soft touches as the brightening air starts to envelope you
slowly
no struggle
you haven’t even noticed that your eyes are now full of light.
Bask in the warmth
The sunflower moves to follow
Unaware that the light is dimming
Cooling
Drawing back
Its hard to see now
You’ve lost your twilight eyes
Moth 
Sunflower
You thought the light would stay
Grow brighter
Believed the promise written spoken
The promise sang…
You thought you knew the story’s ending
Now fall back into the gloaming.
Eyes once again full of shade
and wet

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
