Can you feel
the air is thickening
your thoughts are lighter
let them go

Can you feel
the silence grow
carefully bruising with its feathers
inside you

Can you feel
the peace lay itself
upon you like a covering blanket
let yourself sink

Don't fight the calmness
let the bitter red candles burn down
and drift in thoughts
you have longed for
