I Hear You ***
I have made the wrong choices thousands and thousands of times. I have stood at the gates of Heaven and recoiled at the headwinds of fear. I have raced blindly into the gaping caverns of my mind’s deceptions, like an insect careening into a spider’s deathly embrace. There I awoke, time and time again, bleeding and yearning for the balm of your presence. In one breath I called and I cursed you; but I could never hear when you answered me.
Where were you God/Goddess of my dreams; vibrating out on the furthest reaches of the universe?
You dwelled in the one place where my fear would not grant me entrance; my own beating heart.
I hear you now, Beloved, in the silence, in the falling leaves, in the still spaces between my thoughts.
I hear you.
