A Cry in the Night

I am a long forgotten spirit
Lost among these spinning stars
Longing to understand what I forget
A deeper knowledge how to be enough
For myself

I am disconnected from my universe
Trying to find a way to write my discourse
On the dreams inside a saddened heart
Help me find the place
Wherever I’m meant to be

I am a long forgotten spirit
And I hide from
The darkness
Within a settled world
Someone let me out
My strangled whispers are too soft to be heard

I am a spirit who knows she is present
And yet I cannot cry out to the world…
