This Thing In You

This Thing In You

will not take no for an answer.
This that somehow
shines strong
beneath the heavy hard hurry
of your conveniently
noisy life. This shapeless
something that shows up
everywhere –
even when you forget
to notice.
It does not
understand safe
or sensible, will not let you
get away with half
hearted, lifeless
It’s that wordless
that does not know how
to be quiet. It will continue knocking
until you throw open
the door. Until you become –
Ablaze. Awake. Madly in love.
The dazzling artist
of your own
wild life.
