i love you in the dark
by Mel McVeigh (UK / Australia
An exploration of self-care and love.
My body it aches as it ages. I have let her go so many times and I did not care for her enough.
We have always battled.
I am not sure I ever loved her. She is me.
There are journeys, highways, rivers, canyons, folds and scars. It’s the skin I live in.
A life lived full of happiness, regret, birth, death, embarrassment, fear, anxiety, pain and joy.
Eternal love and experience.
What happens when there is no-one to dry away those tears.
Who am I when it ends?
Say it again, this time with feeling.
