Where your heart lies
there your treasure lies too
Give that treasure to all around
without payment or compromise
silently waiting to share in another’s
heart.. listening for a beating or breath
only silence rings.
I run to double the beats in my ears
double the breath to push down my fears
that although surrounded I am alone
They form a ring around me
facing out, their backs do not reply
I fall to the ground, prostate
on the carpet that I laid, soft and new.
Sobbing echoes against these antique walls
as if occupied by many grieving widows
will my soul haunt here if I pour out my all?
I stare at the golden hue
bursting through the retro windows
let the golden rays kiss my face
and forever remember that He says to me
“I love you.”
I feel I have stepped back from a sharp precipice
as I gaze at the crisp perfect circumference
of the moon in full bloom
I casually stroll through the door
return the key to my sanctuary
‘It belongs to me, too’ I whisper.
The honey on my lips sublime
sears the sting of wind chapped sores
The only outward sign of pain
The rest I store inside, until next time.
