INITIATION

Like a ghost, I move through you
And I hover over the withered fields
I no longer remember the words that brought me here

They have, like me, disappeared
And left these empty shells to take their place
Scattered groundstars, mirrors to hold up to your face

Limbs have slowly dropped away
Detached from me, the things that would not stay
Peeled like wings or scissors to open the inside

Memories were rooted out
And knots undone to let dark ribbons fly -
A window pane, a blank slate that cracked beneath the fire,

I was broken to receive
The bitter lessons beauty could inspire
But I recall no visions, and nothing to believe

Mended in the brightness there,
The path was light, behind the shadows burn
The yawning bridges shattered, impossible return
