Creative Writing Poetry

A Bright Love / A Dark Break

The hum of finding / the flicker in being found.
The dimming of dusk / the great sigh of dawn.
The hunger in poetry / the poetry in hunger.
A world made from silkworms / a world made from lions.
A soft start / a harsh ending.
A swell of fondness for flight / a flood in the form of fear.
In this universe, doves / in the next one, goldfish.
A home in the heart / a heart in the home.
A sky so pink / an earth red raw and burnt.
The ache in leaving / the miracle in choosing to stay.
A dog whimper / a raised voice.
Arms moving through water / rain falling through trees.
The calming of wolves / the fury of crows.
Light hitting the body / body touching the light.
What’s missing? / What’s left?
Hands, everywhere / hands even counting the stars.
