Woven in the Wrong Stitch

A poem about illuminating the darkness

And all of these things? They have created space. Allowed me to fill the darkness with better. Trusting that everything I once grasp too tightly to was just woven in the wrong stitch. While I unthread to remake, I remember the new space I'm creating between my finger tips. The way the openness feels in the morning, like you can take on the world. It's the same vast feeling that practically swallows you whole by night time.It's the power you feed into darling, don't you know?When the light illuminates the darkness it doesn't happen immediately. It trickles in, covering all the dark spaces with color. Slowly the colors unravel in the morning sky and you can not only feel, but sense the power.Light always wins, just keep looking for the small threads of light woven in the darkness, the rest will trickle in.
