Nature Starved

I wish the moon would swallow me whole

So I can bathe in the illuminescence of her white belly

So I can float weightlessly amongst lotus and lily flowers

Surrounded by the sound of trickling water and a choir of frogs

That I may feel a cool breeze dampening my fiery heart

And silence pouring into the chaotic noise of my mind

In which I carry too much anger and pain
