You are my Light

Yes I make mistakes but they will never

I come to you, my moon,
to make waves of the blood in my veins
so that I may find steadiness 
on the seashore 
where you and I are creating a life together.

I come to you, my sun
to grow the dark parts of me that have been denied,
so that I may accept myself fully
so that the woman that I am
is not dismembered by society’s obsession with the light.

I come to you, my night sky
to crush stars into slivers of glass for me
so that I may make a mirror of remembrance
to never forget 
the truth of myself.

Within you I have found my moon, my sun, the stars and all my days. 
Within you is the light I need on my journey to know myself.
