poetry by j matthew waters

deciding between dark and light

the room is dark but there is this
light inside me
faint yet growing
calling me by name and making me
wonder why I am so alone

there is knocking on the door
rap rap rap
someone calling my name
but I pretend it’s just a sparrow
trying to get in
wanting to nest beside me

the light grows stronger with each
passing day
but still I remain in the dark
warming a pair of dice inside my hands
afraid to let them go

april two thousand fifteen
