obsidian knows it (20/30)

prompt: write a poem that states the things you know.

a human footstep is light
except when they are crying

when they sleep
lovers are not separate

the child is mine
they’ll see the resemblance when she falls in love

i gather the shimmer
when i face the darkness

i hope they will stay here
it feels so good to give life

aya was right
though she walked the wrong way

i hold her memories
when she’s ready i’ll slip them back into her

e— is a long lost descendant
of our sun
she belongs here

it is their love that sparked my orbit
but of course the universe is a swoon

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.
