Great Night Rude River

Great Night Rude River
(to depression, you bastard)
Rachel B. Van Gorden ©2006

o great night
who callously holds me captive
you know your power
I see it in your eyes
with one short glance
I gave you permission
to visit me later
and make love to me with your lies

I don’t know what it was I said
to make you feel welcome
I don’t know if I used words at all
but this is no longer a conversation
cause you don’t talk
you just destroy

o great night
you shepherd a lonely solution
but you strum it so well
even good mothers believe
it is one slow kiss
that rouses the thunder
and startles the clouds
bruising leaks in every direction

I don’t know what it was I said
to make you feel welcome
I’m not sure if I used words at all
but this is no longer a conversation
cause you don’t talk
you just destroy

o great night
invisible master of injury
you find your form
in the tears of misunderstandings
you teach one stray thought
the art of survival
and a rude river is born
that divides my senses for miles

I don’t know what it was I said
that made you feel welcome
I don’t know if I used words at all
but this is no longer a conversation
cause you don’t talk, no, you never talk
you don’t talk
you just destroy
