Missing Reincarnation

A sunless mind
and half-mooned heart
are mine,
I know,
right from the start

It takes time,
to cleanse,
to bleach
the darkest
parts of our bodies’ nights

And the ghosts
in our souls
that callously
take flight
the invisible goodness
that helps raise
the dying light.

(This is part of a collaborative poetic effort between myself and CMRSYK1985: Make sure and check out his blog by visiting The Brown Bag Special.)
