To my soulsista

To my soul sister
Writing in the dark
Coercing words into light
To illuminate her slow descent into hopelessness
Poetry into fire
To warm a heart from going cold
To dry the tears from eroding her face

To my song sister
Who never ran out of lyrics before
Whose beauty inspired troubadours
Whose pen pierced
The hardest of skins and earth
And whose smile could part
Every sea of every color and depth

Here is a shooting star you can wish on
Here is a shoulder you should bitch on
Here is an ear for your confession
Here is a hand for you to count on
Here is a prayer
May you always be heard
Even without words

-Mpinga-
