Dinner? - Poetry
Updated: Aug 4, 2020
From the dark I stumbled, into the light
Radiating from your being.
Basking in your company, one summer’s night;
Could oracles have told it would be this freeing?
How do I fathom but a single word
That could paint the scene that played?
The sounds of two souls finally heard
For the first time – no stutter, not delayed.
For I could watch a thousand moons go by,
Listening to the worlds within your head.
For I could sit and stare and view the sky
As it fades from black to red.
Though friends, just strangers we are in true,
For I could never say what plagues your soul.
Though pray I do to think of you,
And the infinite galaxies left untold.
To the great Mother I beg for the wisdom,
That I may know the river from the tree.
I must take this chance. For when it’s done,
Whatever is meant to be, will be.
Now the trials begin at last,
And with each parable I try my best
To appeal to the heart behind the mask,
And pray one day you may say ‘yes.’
