Amera Andersen

(12/03/81 / New Jersey)

because of you …


because of you … I am filled with
resplendent points of light that
cannot hide behind shadows
of doubt.

because of you … each new day
is drenched in a glow that will
not be contained in a bottle
of scorn.

because of you … I look forward
to the crack of dawn; watching
it sizzle - sunny side up, to
feed the world.

because of you … there are days
that I am drenched in the
elixir of satisfaction that
reforms ashes.

and - because of you … I have
overdosed on the opiate of
perfection and nothing
can harm me.
