for Persephone, on the Equinox

Persephone,my love
Take me with you to the underworld
Help me to see the darkness that is mine
... and to be at peace with my mysteries
Hold me in your arms while I cry
tears the color of pomegranate seeds
Tell me the stories I tried to forget
that I may see my self within them
and honor the one who survived
Remind me that after night comes day
in the never-ending spiraling of time
Teach me to stand in balance
between the dark and light of my self
and the world around me
Persephone, my love
make me whole
