VERSE | FOR NOW

Dappled sunlight 
Upon my skin
Warm, streaming motes
Kiss my neck
My arms, my face
Whispering sweet nothings
Caressing, comforting
My shoulders drop
The weight of the world
That sits on them
Like twin rocks
I’m no longer Atlas
Holding up the sky
Shivering
In its storminess
Legs quivering
Under its burden of sighs
And tears and loss
For now
It has all melted away
The coldness, the heaviness, the grey
For now
There is only a quiet joy
A rainbow sprinkling
Of dappled sunlight
Upon my skin
Thawing me, warming me
From within.
