I never knew of it

how it moves within

people say it comes and goes

but I think it stays

just dormant

deep down

sometimes bruised

others – shining

rich with others’ words

both affirms and denies


I never knew its strength

how hard it worked to find me

what lengths it’d go to – the hell

the stress, the lies

I couldn’t believe

it could pick me up

foster a new being – becoming,


and not needing another


I never knew the thing

I needed could be so

superficial – yet

monumental – a combination of everything

good and perfect

I never knew it could float, had powers like such

growing, filling, exploding

in its own right


I never knew of it before.




Honestly, it still confuses me

but I know it won’t leave

so… I just let it stay
