found myself [poem]

image

I didn’t change
I just found myself
tucked between the raindrops and
under mossy rocks
nestled beside the creek
I became the dappled shadows sunlight creates
became the invisible
the unnoticed
I became the breath you take
just before sleep claims your mind at night
the breath before the dive underwater
the last breath
before greeting Death on the other side
I became a between thing
fey and alluring yet
disconcerting
if you get too close
but that’s the thing
I didn’t change
didn’t suddenly become the grey areas
between your defined existence
I just found myself
in the subtle sparkling of the silence and shadows
