Small and Green by Malik Sullivan

I remember you.

Small and green,

You would flit about

Uncertain where you were going

Yet sure you would know when you got there.

 

I remember you.

On your journey you found

Broken spirits,

Low hanging moons,

And gathered them into you one by one.

 

I remember you.

You restored them each,

And when you had made their blues into golds

They vanished,

Leaving you alone with their night.

 

I remember you.

Being nurtured by shadow,

Filling your void with bleak spirits,

And more certain than ever

That you would never see the sun again.

 

I remember you.

Realizing, there, that your travels were ended

And yearning to be small and green again

So you’d remember who you were

When you started.
