A Dark Love Is Our Fire

'Love is a fire
& I am wood.'-Rumi


A dark love
is our fire
Seduction
how like
perfection
or lightning
leaving sky
All heat
and light


You are wood
I am root
Sparks
split apart
by desire
Penetrated
by flame
and fire


Sanctuary
and
anarchy
this love
Impetuous
and intense
All flame and
fragrant aperture
Deep

Tree
into
wood
Natural
cut up
made
useful
Together
born
opening
cutting
All brilliant
and bent
crying out

Some
say love
is ...

Into The Sea

Should I walk into the sea?
Go and drown this part of me
that cannot stay, yet cannot leave.
Can only cry and scream and grieve.

Should I walk into the sea?
Let it pour inside of me.
Baptize and wash me clean.
Blue and holy.Host and dream.

[Hata Bildir]
