I swallowed a warm yellow pill today,
It went down my aching sore throat,
Like a soup made of warm love,
Soothing, caressing, easing the pain.
It filled my chest with the sun shine,
Clearing the cold cobwebs of winters,
Filling it with a warm fresh summer breeze.
The muddy moisture evaporated,
From the damp dark corners inside me,
And a golden light was shining,
Through the cracks on my skin.
I could feel myself heal,
When I swallowed that warm yellow pill.
Why didn’t I do it before?
It was always right there,
Outside my window every morning.
I only ever looked at it, never taking it in,
But not today, today I swallowed it whole,
And saw myself glow, as it warmed my soul.
Yes, I swallowed the Sun,
No, I can’t stop shining.
