Sometimes I feel it’s swallowed me whole
This found love-
-Half devoured as I sink in to you
Satiating you, a secret inside
Shivering in anticipation. I beseech-
I sought redemption by
-for this so called tragic human condition
A veteran in wandering
I traveled in pilgrimage; for so long
I forgot where I came from, forgot what I was looking for
I knew only the search-
and all I remembered was the song
Upon dusted venture I lay claim to my great grey in-between;
to my aloneness; my obliteration
Until you answered my song.
“How dare he”
Come in-between me and my coveted plight.
“How DARE he”
Eye to eye with the moon, to the night
Love; abashed. Returned to it’s home
like Lady Macbeth I bellowed
“Out damned spot”
But to no avail.
Devotion sprouted like a weed; and demanded I take flight;
memory jogged, the proverbial apple bitten
it’s flesh torn.
I sought not a kingdom to overthrow, but a companion to build it a new
ashes to ashes; dust to dust
To you, the uninvited adversary
and only to you
this dragons treasure I entrust.
Now hush you,
and listen to my song once more.
