Darkness, your puppeteer,
Dominating the gray.
Drifting far from your light,
Yet still connected to the day.
Captured in lusts’ web,
Every sense heightened with anticipation,
The same web which binds you,
Connects the pieces of your whole.
When the sun penetrates the shrouded barrier,
Which part of you wins the war?
Soul in peril,
Running from safety.
Into the tangible arms of temptation,
Painting unbridled passion ornately.
Perhaps enough rain will fall,
To wash you free from the snare.
Before you’re enveloped by silken threads,
And digested by the dark affair…
Am I like you or are you like me?
Whose reflection do we see?
Lost in wavering introspection,
Striving for identity.
Merged with passive consent,
Which of us is the thief.
Stealing from the real, to feed the false
Monopolizing the mirror’s company.
It’s hard work just to see,
Self scattered in the intangible.
I seek fluidity in self-unification.
A connectivity that’s palpable…

Can you see through…
The muddy waters surrounding?
Will you reveal the way out?
Feet so far beneath the surface,
Merging with the sludge of doubt.
Existence relative to self awareness.
Perceptual evidence waning.
Afraid to look beneath the surface.
Adapting to the comfort of sinking.
To fight, trust.
To hope, cling to faith.
To emerge, strive.
Light and safety are in wait…

Serenity is faith in graceful flight,
Soaring upon empowered wings.
Peace is trust propelled forward
By unshakable childlike belief.
Hope is blessed expectancy,
Unencumbered by fear’s oppression.
Love is the only everything,
God in all, unity, perfection.
Am I the flesh encasing these bones?
Am I the heart that beats within?
Am I the spirit in which God dwells?
Am I this mind of clarity and confusion?………..
There is a frost within you,
Crippling the light and the warmth.
Shaving love from your life,
And the ice won’t let you mourn.
You push all who love you away,
Striking out in rage and attempts to control.
I see the vulnerability within you,
The battle you’re losing in your soul.
The losses you won’t acknowledge,
Are losses just the same.
And somewhere in your frozen core,
Your heart faintly beats to denial’s refrain.
Only God can thaw you,
His, the only healing.
Your razor sharp defenses,
Cannot shred all feelings.
And when the blood is allowed to flow,
Warm from your hidden wounds.
I pray God grants you strength to endure
Until then, I’ll still keep loving you…
