Sweet Relief

A poem about a humanly spiritual experience

Sweet relief burns so slowly

Touching the depths of my soul

entering through the delta of my air first

flowing like a stream of white water

but lighter, calmer

Quenching a familiar thirst

and yet sparking a close flame

playing with fire

off and on

and off and on

extinguished and ignited

one in the same

I think hard, I think deep

I think, maybe I think too much

but something about the earth coming together

with fire and then

they touch

and then

They birth air

Sweet relief burns so slowly

coming to my rescue

comforting

my insecurities

my overthinking

Summer will turn to winter too quickly

And I will have forgotten the feelings

but summer will be back again

burning

Sweetly

    Great job! my favorite lines; Summer will turn to winter too quickly And I will have forgotten the feelings but summer will be back again. Keep uploading more, I enjoyed reading your poem.

    I enjoyed your poem. I especially found intriguing this phrase: "something about the earth coming together with fire" Incidentally, I, too, have used Lucas Clarysse's photography (of a burning cigarette) for the cover art of a poem.
