08. Onyx Dust

Forces of Light
by Northlander



 

I canít create a g*d d*mn thing. I canít put down roots and I canít dream. Thereís a dark that lives inside my bones. I swallowed the sun but Iím still cold. I was born to ride the wind, tumble and turn, flutter and fall. But Iíve been pouring from the midnight sky an ink of onyx dust in oil fire light that said. Youíll grit your teeth but youíll fall right off. Itís just who you are itís all in your blood, youíre so much smaller than you thought. I held my tongue but I just chewed it up. Am I better now that I let the silence say the things I cannot say? I found a way to put down my thoughts, but it takes my time and it steals my blood. Iíve got an anxious mind and a heavy heart theyíre both pressing at the back of my eyes. Heavy drink canít float the weight. No medicine could ease the strain. Iíd take an easy out over anything, but seems the narrow gate holds the taste Iím craving. I watch my time just flying by, burning right through the nights. For more than my share of life my blue sky has been grey. For all the separation and my anxious engagements I am more than the sum of my failure or fear.
