Growth’s many meanings

Growth’s many meanings
.
Scientists
say that the universe
is
expanding every single day, and
it is not likely to stop any time soon
so we
are spinning in a growing space
we cannot perceive. I like
to believe that
the universe knows what it
is doing when it stretches into a beyond
we believed was a void, but is actually readily
available to be filled in to with
our masses of bodies that seem to need more
space than required.
Perhaps we
think too much
of ourselves in that regard, taking more than
needed seems to follow
the laws of the universe, we
don’t think
about it, not for a second.
Instead, we
expect to be given more, so
we can fill a
void, empty space
just because we
can. And when you walked into my life
and like a
black hole,
you sucked all the kindness I had
on offer, only to boost your ego to unscaled
measures, did I finally walk

leaving you
in the path of your own destruction and
hoping you would reverse your polarity and retreat
into the darkness you
created.

New Moon

“There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.”- George Carlin

The pack hesitates tonight
looking to each other
for a sign of recognition.

There is a call they are unfamiliar with,
distant and echoing
against the open horizon.

Oh how the sound reverberates against the stars:
this call that fills a void,
breathing rhythm into the tides,
commanding nightly ventures,
tracing paw prints in undisturbed soil.

Unseen,
hidden behind shadow’s veil
she calls them
each by name
urging them on their search for her
while she cannot find her way to them
in the light of day.
