This poem was written in collaboration with a dear friend and fellow AuthorsDen member - Simon Thurlow. It was my honor and privilege to work with such a talented and gifted writer. We humbly offer our first foray into collaboration. We hope you enjoy.


From the well of the soul springs forth a feeling

Anchored yet fluid it moves about the churning sea heart

Brought to the fore by the rage of emotional disease

Swirling, spiraling, demanding, to be denied no longer

The enigma that swelled under the might of self-doubt

Metamorphed into something quite unexpected

In chrysalis form it was no more than a child

Now broken free of the animosity that caged it within

From the darkened realms of nightmarish visions

To the sun-kissed vista that swelled with pride

Never-ending journey to a dream held so dear

Determination rife and refusing to be quelled

Exacerbated emotions bubbling to the surface

Tears long since congealed return to life

No longer a symbol of misery and distress

But a talisman of all that was simply meant to be

Bathed in an orgy of long lost yearning

Succumbing to the inevitable without a care

Knowing at last the chains have been severed

Exulting in a warmth simply cradled by love

A smile is now visible as one of contentment

Sense of serenity for the first time in years

Acknowledging that fate has turned a card in favour

Awaiting the next step that one must surely take

Ever mindful of the reality that anchored this feeling

Bound by duty and obligation, yet love soars still

Enduring moments of anguish while daring to dream

Preparing for the day ahead when all becomes as it should

Armoured in love as the life battle arrives on the horizon

Sunrise justice illuminates the path eradicating the darkness

A child no more, this feeling slays foes and removes barriers

Clinging steadfast to the belief that love is a dream

One fulfilled when it meets with the sea heart reality

The sufferance of injustice weeps on the wind

For the souls that flowered in the wrong place and time

Searching for deliverance from the crooked hand of fate

Holding on to the dream of one day being released

Anaemic alibis were quickly rumbled

But merely served to reinforce the feeling that it was always intended

Straightjacket holds tight but its time is passing

Breath no longer laboured for destiny is yet to play her hand

Absentia absolves the feeling of despair

A kiss on the dusk as real as could be

As the world turns slowly bringing two hearts ever closer

For the same wish echoes on a star in twilight hours

Each morning the sun rises as one looks to the East

Each evening it settles as the other looks to the West

Across the void they lock in union

One, not two, in a passionate embrace.
