A Soft Chaos – Elisha Zaugg

Image result for A Soft Chaos art

I have always existed in this small place
Walls like cracked conch
That reflect my emotions
Revealing the most intimately dangerous vulnerable parts of me
I have never been alone here
In this place beats a rythm
Wild and dangerous

Her heart
It’s soft beats echo off the walls
Gentle, loving, soothing
It has a power over my soul
An unknown ephemeral thing
That can elevate my greater self
Or shatter everything I am like glass
Yet still I kneel
Still I love and give in

Because in that weakness
Within those things that hold my destiny captive
Sleeps the greatest strength I have
Someday this small place will break
Through the cracks a light
Will bathe our world
In those things we have kept most private
Yet given to each other
It is a soft, beautiful, and strong, hard hurricane
That type of wild depth that so few can even dream of
