Elements

Air

i breath you

you caress me

hold me

hot or cold

every minute is you

your quality dictates mine

you send my voice far

or rip my words from my throat

water

i meet you

you greet me

as I pierce your skin

you negotiate my cells

plumping me make me more than dust

so we drink each other

earth

i tread you

you uphold me

you are the grit of my teeth

as I ingest you

in all your mineral glory

you will one day eat me in my entirety

fire

i worship you

you warm me

or beat me into blisters with you flames

without you I am form without function

slower slower until I still

mind stops all movement cease

you are my passion and I am wild with you

I am statuary without you

spirit

i acknowledge you

you laugh at my knowledge

like a toddler who realizes her cognizance

in the floating of a feather

and that memory courses through all thought

even in the null of the void

it is just me laughing at my own realizements

thats all it’s been all along
