go up

all photos by the sissy


show me the way.
show me the way to the mountains lit by fire, fire that touches bones instead of faces and blood instead of skin.
i am transparent there.
opened up and barren and hauntingly empty.

show me the way.
show me the way to the mountain where we can climb up into the sky just by breathing and moving and constantly living.
i am free there.
unshackled and unchained and startlingly strong.

show me the way.
oh God of the Mountain
for i have descended into the valley, and i am afraid.

climb on,
little light among the ruins.
go up.

  2. Stunning poem, love. I especially like "fire that touches bones instead of faces and blood instead of skin".
    This whole poem reminds me of Paper Towns by John Green for some reason. Idk.
