let me taste the light

let me disappear into
the forest,
let me hope again;

as the creek water washes away
every worry and the trees lend me
their kindness and compassion
as crowsong nests in my ears just
leave me be—

humanity can be a burden sometimes,
let me live in this place with peace as
my compass and guide;

where wildflowers and moonlight and
sunsong can lead me to my destinations—

i want to know magic again,
far too long i have been trapped in a world
that wasn’t of my own design and i have had
enough of the mundane because i know
there is more than suffering and pain and darkness;

let me taste the light once more.
