the inner smile
scattering goblets of delight

fueled by your Presence
the inner flame
burns brighter

Beloved
let me stay with you
for a little longer

the veil has uplifted
and the mist has dissolved
it is in you
I wish to be lost

nurtured by sacred tears
the stillness within me
blooms
a silent collapse
from skin to soul
a quiet dip
in the ocean
of gratitude

I no longer remain me
when I am with you
stripped from time
in the place I belong
Beloved, there is no better taste
for which I have longed

my wings bud in ecstasy
and spirit surges
as every step I take
towards you
dissolves in your fragrance
and merges

let me run wild
through illumined fields
of eternal spring
and pure delight

consume me
make me whole
in this holy flight
of the soul

even after hours
of being one with the wind
you see, I lie only exalted
bathed in your Light

Beloved
let me stay content
for a little while

on days like this
words fail me
lost without you,
my steps falter
these lips tremble
and breath hardens

‘when will you come?’ my heart cries
‘melt my frozen body
in your warm embrace
give me a reason to stay alive,
wipe tears off my face?’

I wish you could see
how I await your arrival
lost in space and time,
wandering between
the dead and the divine

and when only stillness flows
in endless motion
how I lie scattered
in a grave
on the edge
of a glowing ocean
