In the Heart of my Night 

  

This has been 

…a spirit stretched day

And now that it is through

Wish I could pull up a simple chair

To sit and talk with you

It has been gravely long 

Since our parallel souls sang a song 

We tally each blessing

Deciphering right from wrong

The nights fall short and the days are shy 

The silence we adorn 

Flies on the backs of hurricanes in the  cries of a storm 

If I could cradle the eye of the blow 

And ride it to you

You could balance my weeping

In a harmony of two

  

Transparent, Me



I’ve missed you terribly

Like when Jesus left Mary 
Her heart released and carried 
Away
How long ago were we split 
From one to two
I’ve searched in crowded rooms
I’ve written the ink out of all my pens
I’ve prayed, begged, and wished on stars
The ones that burned into my soul
In that ever gaping hole
I’ve caught and killed butterflies 
I’ve bled and died alone 
I’ve been frozen and I’ve been stoned 
I’ve left lovers and led blind men
I lost children and wailed for you then
I was put in the hands of cruelty
And abandon when they tired of me
I handed myself up and over 
My heart clutched in the teeth 
Of an eagle
Searching to find you 
At last the garnet was delivered 
And I felt a jolt of life 
My twin soul
I am moved beyond control
And my heart weeps
Baptized in belief 
I love you 
Reborn and recycled 
I’ve played all my roles 
I walk into my final lifetime 
A last surrender 
To fill your soul with mine 
So we can leave behind our parts
To drown in the destiny 
Of a completed heart
