Yin holds Yang

(note: this is a work in progress, check back in a few days for the complete first draft. If this message remains, the post has not been completed. This is an ekphrastic poem based on a friend’s sketch. The picture will be included with the completed poem.)

Rest here now
on me
and forget
your father’s words

as he pointed
from his door
to your future

Despite a string of tears
you wear me now

These sheets,
not a flag of surrender,
but a banner
bright and stained
by our union

scuro al mio chiaro
ci dormiamo insieme
saldo al mio mondo
ci amiamo insieme

I’ll still be here
when you wake.
