Asking the Dark

“How long does heartache last,”
she asked the dark new Moon,
with wide eyes staring incredulously
at her broken-open heart.

They quietly sat together
in the pin-pricked dark,
her and the dark Moon.
The Moon smiled softly,
“Your ache is the primordial ache
of your own perceived
separateness from Source.
My darling, fully drink your ache in.
Consume it, until it consumes you.
Keep following it.
It as a portal back to your
true, essential self.”
