You bring 
joy to the morning 
a feeling of ease
in a dark storm 
You bleed 
into the mourning 
covering up 
my scarred arms
you turn 
pain into warning 
prodding and turning
my heart back home

Don't be afraid 
Of cascades 
They'll come 
in Ribbons of color 
Shimmering, shuddering 
Small rivers running 
Blue In the veins 

Don't be afraid 
Of promenades 
Of glittering shame
It'll come
In skies and in wonder 
disguising and thundering 
Small storms tumbling
Red in the veins 

Don't be afraid
Of cascades
They'll come 
In currents of color
Crying and wondering
Small rivers running
Blue in the veins

A quiver full of arrows
chosen for you
I was the sharpest,
I flew the fastest
Into your heart 
To join the rest of your wounds
