Dawn of my darkest nights
It comes up again.
Like a cry
like a warrior scream
like speaking in tongues that cannot be tamed.
Centuries of despair alchemize in my cells
expel through my skin and my voice.
I scream out the darkness.
I open my mouth and drink in light.
It passes through my vocal chords
down into my throat
swirls in my belly
fills my cells like golden saline.
I am an eternal cup of light
