Bleeding in The Dark

My heart feels like the night – dark and smothered;
My heart feels like a wound – quietly bleeding;
My heart feels like glass – cracking, cracking.


In the smothering dark,
Feel the blood flow over breaking glass.
Through the breaking glass,
Hear the silent, flowing blood.


In me you see
Broken and whole as
One and the same.
In me you see
Light and dark as
One and the same.


Or you could if…
You could see into the darkness
You could see past the cracks
You could see through the blood.


In the silence of hopes,
In the yearning of wishes,
In the limbo of dreams:
That is when my
Heart is whole.
