to go deep into the night,

you’ll be scared

they say –

take care always.

i know.

but truth be told

the only fears that grow

are the lingering voices that

seem to dive deep within

me into the


so i examine,

i listen close –

is this sorrow

or frustration

that i’m holding onto the most?

so instead of understanding,

i just simply feel –

i feel all the beats of my

heart racing

i lay still.

i number the intensity,

i sit within it’s rhyme,

the rhythm of the earth

within this chest of mine.


or not alone.

though most nights i am –

i choose to feel

each moment

the best way i can.

i’m not fearless,

though i am pretty close –

because a heart with such compassion

sees the magic in most.
