I never think dark will come

all I am is pulse and heave
waves altered each moment by light
day is slow to warm me
I know the sun’s wide road
only when my surface tingles
with glitter points that flash and spark
deep down I am always dark
clouds shade me through green and beyond
their arrows of rain darken me before night
I lose the sun without finding the moon
the fade of day covers me with grey gauze
I bask in the sweet fire that lingers over me
sometimes light slopes away in secret
stealing my warmth   blinding me to myself
till all I know is my own movement
I never think light will return
