understanding

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

midnight epiphany

Posted on Updated on

walking the path
beneath incandescent moonlight
as we share similar madness,
clarity pours
from another realm
the words that make us
ceaselessly
fill the space
between us

bathed 
in the light
emanating
from our beings,
absorbed
in the thoughts
mirroring our essence,
we ascend

I pause briefly
in wonder
as time slips away
only to discover
how I would 
give myself
in the fraction
 of an instant
to enter
 that state of oblivion
with you
again
