that we are as unbreakable as anything,
that we only find
a fragile strength in our stillborn sky,
that the mountains
are violent sleepers.
The speckled indigo heavens sigh
upon my fear.
Your tender eyes and rainy smile
unbreakable as anything.
that if we’re about to die
the sesame seeds become meaningless;
that memories exist
simply for the taking.
But You are not
Inspired by Psalm 121.
Written July 2012, Emma Dumitra.
