standing on melting ice

December 21, 2009

my eyes are shut and the stars in their vastness
are playing with my soul
but there is no spark, no reaction.

I feel deadened, nothing seems to help me, move me
if the stars cannot move me, who will?
but I know. I was awake once. and alive.

the stars used to light fires. I used to dream and weep
and smile and shine. now I am dark
and confused. I am standing on melting ice.

it’s easy to abandon fire if you are standing on ice
I must take a step onto solid ground
so the fires can burn within me once again.
