* * *



there are answers


to every question


 

* * *



placed within a gentle fold


of lights and rushing stars



while held within the arm of god


we welcome this future’s caress



* * *



another story


based on thoughts



opened to those that hide


obscure to those that search



enigma of creation


worthwhileness of existing



endless road


infinite choices



always returning


to the way


of discovery

 


* * *



yes


the door opens



peering in


turning around


hands outreaching


beauty found


breath let in


breath let out


and held


in the spiraling moments


that defines


this dream



* * *



You think


and live



You find


and worship



You love


and lose



* * * 



the beginning is the simplest


the end is the saddest


and in between, we share



* * *



secrets exposed in wonderous words


flash by



struggling with perfect expression


and then let go



* * *



I’ve called out


and await the answers



I’ve opened my thoughts


to an oblivious universe



I’ve screamed curses


at the indifferent horde



I’ve defiled


all that is sacred to you



I’ve cried


these countless tears



 

the rage subsides



but reason does not return


the yearning remains



for all that can not be expressed


for all that can not be found



but inspirations must exist


in tiny fragments to collect



in tiny fragments to piece together


in the friends that we keep and hold



in the friends that define our life



and the tears turn to joy


and joy to a radiant smile



and a smile becomes a universal answer



the smile that I give to you



* * *



only the epilogue remains



and that must write itself



 * * *



lulled into

final security


the grand finale


the premature expectation

of hope



a final burst


shattering time


flattening space


destroying equilibrium


but dearly holding on


to this flat line signal



out of control


spinning wildly


previous final chapter

requires explanation


random firing


complete breakdown



plummeting into darkness


demons escaping vileness


red swirls of confusion


rising gorge of revulsion


recognition of evil


final judgment



barely hearing fading bells


rippling across green meadows


the colors of life shine bright




beyond analysis


beyond conceiving


beyond belief



* * *



there is a pillar


high into the sky


made by thoughts


protected by dreams


and climbed by all



the search has ended


the light shines down


the truth remains unknown


but peace is held out


and accepted



* * *



I’ve tried to share


but only you can judge



this elusive understanding




the end should be explained


in words that comfort and appease



but that is not possible



so one must present private visions


plucked from free thought



the door will open wide


when one reaches out 


and touches the latch



all has been said




for now

 


* * *



I have brought you into me


the way I think and feel



Do I dare now let you out?



* * *
