I had not sight for guidance.
 
That cavern of emotion
 
Which encloses upon me
 
In suffocating darkness,
 
Can only be navigated
 
By the willingness to feel.
 
 
 
There is an ache beyond words -
 
That longing for completion.
 
The symbiosis of the universe
 
Permeates the nucleus of my identity
 
–Dissolve my ego mind.
 
There, enfolded in the center of centers,
 
I feel the oscillation of duality.
 
 
 
There is a yearning beyond time.
 
It stretches like a membrane
 
Over old and splintered bones.
 
A remnant of my former torment
 
Arrives like a careless stranger,
 
Ready to renew acquaintance.
 
I feel so deeply such contrasts.
 
The fluent warmth of hope,
 
The lifeless numbness of desolation.
 
Do I bear to you my heart?
 
Are you listening?
 
 
 
I am painfully absent.
 
Distant and dreaming as I traverse
 
The stars which paint my mind.
 
This endowment of wonder
 
Cuts me with an ardor
 
Beyond my ability of articulation.
 
Bound by the velocity
 
Which displaces clouds forever,
 
I stay a moment with you.
 
 
 
I listened to the enchanting lore
 
Of a thousand blissful lifetimes
 
When I gazed into her eyes.
 
I live in possibilities.
 
Enveloped by the coral-colored sky,
 
I epitomized the incandescence
 
That guided me to her.
 
Would I have rather never known?
 
 
 
The sun illuminates the expanse
 
Of an Oklahoma sky.
 
A trail of dust dances on the horizon
 
As I observe the flight of birds.
 
Amidst the weeds and thorns
 
Of my animated mind,
 
I brace myself to journey
 
Through a suffocating darkness,
 
Only to be navigated
 
By the willingness to feel.
 
Do I bear to you my heart?
 
Are you listening?
