I felt you there
 
Wherever it seems to be
 
That place we go when eyes are closed
 
And we use our minds to see.
 
 
 
Many hearts were reaching out
 
Notes left in manifold things
 
Yet all professed their gratitude
 
To the siren with empyreal wings
 
 
 
I orchestrated a tune
 
To deliver such expressions
 
Yet in due time all was mist
 
The haze of my lonely obsessions
 
 
 
And what location was this?
 
Hills with bellies of clouds
 
The many faces unfamiliar
 
The moonlit shimmering shrouds
 
 
 
There were no words to speak
 
Yet did I long to convey
 
That such silence spawned from fear
 
Of what I wanted to say
 
 
 
“My heart cannot sustain
 
Such brief blessings upon my eyes
 
Though distance makes the heart grow fonder
 
You are the very sunrise
 
 
 
And if such lips remained elusive
 
And melded not with mine
 
Never should I want to wake
 
From this fabricated design
 
 
 
For here exists a ‘we’
 
As desire becomes unraveled
 
And though it’s only of the mind
 
In mind alone we have traveled
 
 
 
A chill stirred me from such slumber
 
The arrival of a northern wind
 
Only illusion, asleep or awake
 
Remains the condition where I am pinned
 
 
 
But contentment I must feel
 
For the idea alone should suffice
 
The symbiosis merely evaporates
 
The fire and the ice
 
 
 
I heard an enchanting whisper
 
From the voice where I am drawn
 
It produced a bittersweet smile
 
As I rose to greet the dawn
