There is a Sun in Your Chest

Love hides in odd places

I know you're scared

I'm right there too

I know you're hurting

I'm right here with you 

I know you feel alone

I know the world seems a lost cause some days

I know some days are darker than the night

I know the sun doesn't shine in some places

I know you carry inside you

The potential for perpetual darkness

But even in the darkest depths of the ocean
Where no one has ever seen the sun 
Where they do not know the greeting of the dawn
Even in the heart of darkness
There is light

And Love has an army 
Right around the corner

Love has an army
Waiting like a February dawn in an Arctic town of Polar Nights

Love has an army
7 billion sleeper agents
Waiting for Love to take them over like Agent Smith in the Matrix

Love lies waiting in the depths of the oceans inside your heart
Love lies waiting in the heights of the mountains inside your heart
Love lies waiting like bioluminescence
In the deep sea of even the blackest hearts

Song of the Beloved p. I

At your mention
My knees give away
One whisper of your name
My entire body becomes a prayer

Please keep me close to you
Whether you love me or hate me
Please keep me close to you
Whether your hurl insults at me
Or curl your way into my folds
Keep some of your attention on me

You are my moon
You are the wind in my sail
You are my midnight sun
I am lost without you
I am lost within you
I am lost
Find your way into me
Let me find my way into you

Your shadow is a supernovae
Swallowed by a black hole
Your lack of presence is death
And I am dying
Every day
With every hour
I draw closer to that moment
But dying is nothing new
Compared to a moment without you
