Poem #24 NaPoWriMo2013 ’30 Poems in 30 Days’

April 24, 2013

in the dark behind my eyes,

only thoughts- my thoughts

all made of words but not ‘my’ words,

the words of a language

thoughts have learned to speak,

speaking there in the body brain

that is no more  ‘my’ body than

the words are ‘my’ words-

rather, the physical nature

‘my’ spirit has learned to be.

Eyes open, eyes closed,

the day, the night,

not ‘my’ darkness, not ‘my’ light,

but  in me,  these opposites  unite…
