Holding me as close as anyone can try
falling through the abyss
her radiance an inner glory
Not thinking of my yesterdays
nor gnawing on my tomorrows
feeling just the now
knowing only this moment
branching no where, no when, no how
She is a light illuminating my present.
angelic feathers spread about me unseen
She is the tranquility of the moment
calming the frantic chaos of my mind
She is the dweller in a still deep pool
inviting me to wash away the world.
Tight to her I fall through the abyss
spiraling about a singularity in space
stuttering about a moment in time
the radiance from her center
casts shadows passed my darkness
a darkness which gnaws away
an oily blackness in the pit of my heart
hiding every where, when, and how.
I am the bitter seed and core of the past
knuckles dragging on the pavement of sin
lurching from rotten age to age
venting against the pure without sense
raging against the kind, good, and sincere.
inviting the sweet to reprobation.
Held close by her as a sacrifice
falling into the eternal abyss
she gives of herself so others may live
she binds her fate to mine in a final act
an act of obedience and charity
two things I had never know
until her last shining moment
relenting no where, no when, no how
