One More Speck

I puzzle over all the world

I puzzle over wonders

And over wonderment itself

Over tragedies

And tragedy itself

I question hyper-vocalism

As well as reclusivity

I’m perpetually at fault for one or the other

Whether I know it or not

I have enemies because I breathe

And allies because I think

And the world is a dark place right now

And it is a loud place

And it is difficult to see the light

And it is difficult to find peace


But I see the light

It shines from a million points all around me

Occasionally brushing my arm

And I only hope I can be one among the stars

That I somehow add to a constellation


And as I clutch the sides of my head and search frantically for answers

I feel my Lover’s hand in mine

And I hear my God in a hushed tone

And for a moment,

I believe I am alive

I am not alone.

And I may add to the world without adding to the noise

And I may add to the darkness one more speck of light
