untouched melody

Posted on Updated on

there is pain
that lies hidden away
the pain whose source is unknown,
where it originates, why it is there
an almost unbearable heaviness
as if a huge tragedy transpired before
perhaps in some other lifetime
as if memory of the experience
has faded away
but the agony, the pathos still remain
a sorrow I can drown myself in
a loss, a separation, a heartache
that consumes me at times
and stirs up the unknown,
the unanswered questions,
the endless pain
that flows so smoothly
when little things, their deeper perception
spoken words, their hidden silences
a knowing touches me so
it is often then
that a liberating realization,
a strange yet familiar feeling
breaks open the shell
that encloses my understanding
of the world around me
of the depths of my own soul

    This is the process of gaining wisdom. The more we know and understand the more we wish we could remain blissfully ignorant!

      agreed! 🙂 you reminded me of a Rumi quote where he says – the closer I get, the more I see how far I am. and guess sometimes who we consider a fool has the most wisdom 😉

        Wow I’m honored to be compared to the likes of Rumi, thank you!

        A fool is the man who thinks he knows everything for a wise man knows he still has much to learn.
