Tearing, ripping at my flesh, shredding Until there is nothing left but blood and bone They come back for that too - until - nothing There is nothing left - they are gone and I no longer exist
It is dark and still – wait - they left a piece, a tiny almost nothing piece A seed, they left a tiny seed Soaked in blood not water, it matters little – tiny, struggling, fragile
In my nothingness, I send it thought – I send it love
My tears fall and life pushes forth, a small but bright light in the darkness Born out of blood, tears, and a great nothingness – it pushes onward and upward
Three tendrils of energy and light and love – spiral together, twisting, dancing Faster and faster, the dance goes onward and upward
I hitch a ride and am no longer nothing – I am something, sharing energy and light and form
My roots grow deeply, securely – into the darkness below while the rest is propelled forward, upward – into the light.
Return for me if you dare, you won’t find me – I no longer exist In your haste to destroy me, you have set me free
