There were nights
When the moon was full
The sky was oceans behind the stars
Aeons of answers
Trapped in morse code
The cricket’s song
Was the meaning of life
Understood only
By those who know
There were nights
When the richness of the world

Senses alight, I could bloom
Like a wisp, like mist,
I flew to fall
And fly again
Into the speaking dark
Unfettered, unafraid
Uncaught, unbound
Trapped in a person
I was just the sea
And the tides made me feel
But now I see
The tides were just ripples
Within revolutions

There is a universe
Inside me
