Keeping so much hidden.
There's a splitting I can feel.
My heart disengaged and corner facing;
Can I trust You with the real Me?
My little remedies and apothecary relief
Provide a space, a softened place to rest my head.
Weighing deeply into the ground I hide.
Not from You but from the overcast they all emanate.
If You were here I imagine your beaming smile,
Nudging me into your perfect mood,
The one You carry with you with every luminous step.
Like The Sun, brightly incandescent.
A great fire burns in your heart. You are nourishing.
Your thoughtful embrace, my body's needs are met instantly.
We come into this unaware,
Yet with a mind saturated in The Truth.
With time, the cup spilling over the edges;
The precious liquid lost to expectations placed inside
Like large objects.
Displacing all that is good.
Staining the once pure floor;
White marble becomes pink.
You are everywhere.
And I breathe you in on waking,
And eventually on departure.
For I am enveloped into Your infinite Inhale;
As I perform my final Exhale.
