Create me

Touch the sky to my arm
raise the fine hairs
to the electricity of the beating
somewhere there are drums to follow
beats to bear
a path to take us there.

Touch the path with Windigo
and there he lies
solid and cold
no breath in his skin
those antlers have driven out the parts
that made the within.

Don't look behind you
you might find a sorrow
you missed the first time somehow
where silence meets the lightning
and no grass grows.

Looking behind can really be sorrowful in itself can't it?

Thanks for the read!

that's wonderful. drums and stars, it stirs something inside me... silence meets the lightning...reminds me of something i read once.
