Because I Am Asking

Because I Am Asking

Because I Am Asking

If answers were simple, could've been
If chaos is peace, the paws sleep
And I am under the night trees
With the roots through wonder to the core
I'll remember a few dreams and watching
Stars hold my cabin under covers
Morning in distance and a cave awaits
My slumber here to crawl me in
Is this a Spring Evening full of wind's breath
Is this my home, just above the sand
Shall I write until a storm forms
With these emotions I can meet
Because these arms of nature are
A hold of me, even in haunted tales
As I am a nature girl through until
Cackles roll off my lips with exhales
Being the fairy shadows that I am
Being the avatar of Births
I'll find a place to make even more
Of this screaming story maker
Calls inside where the mountains
Give me their voice and their throats
To quake where I walk until risen
As if I were Earth's rocks
I'll remember the emotions there
Because I am too, the one that feels
When the oceans flood my dreams
Until I awake again or more
This is my place to roll under my warm

If only I could embrace myself
Like a man I could want again
As if a man were going to be near
Or let me smell his charms of
For I am half of a match yet whole
For I am understood with eyes closed
I could touch someone there without
Being theirs, or anyone's, yet loved
I could be claimed as mate, yet
I am my own property and heart
Like the human that lives on the Earth
I can be a home or be destroyed
I can be a love or be destroyer
Life sings still, whether or not
There is destruction upon such births
Because I will always see the seed
Plant it or not, I will water my way
When the rain forgets my steps
I'll cuddle back under covered carriage
I'll fill the air with candles and
Give me the doorway to spirits
Maybe meet a man's one there and
Let him touch me until the morning
Rest calls again the smell of dirt
Rest sings a hold on me I embrace
Tomorrow is not here, as I love this
Place that can only be when I open
As I remember my brave for the day
I also found my terror met with kindness
