Internally Yours

Magnificent omnipresent mystery.
With a look of purpose that was groundless
Invoking roaming penetration
I realized the echoed abyss
In order that I might then
Taste and know your love
With the starkest of certainty

Relentlessly long 
Was my appetite.
Through a famine
Gorging upon 
External absence.
Vast banquet tables
Were set. 
Replete with volume,
But devoid of substance.
Compulsive gratification
A soul-starved angst
Reigned supreme

Sick & tired
Of being 
Sick & tired
I tentatively responded
To the waxing and waning
Of a heart in exile

Rather extraordinary
To be a foreigner
In my own heart
A path presented
Comprised of archived traumas
Real & imagined
Day to day 
Occurrences unfolded
In alignment with 
A heart's covenant 
Intent on healing

How vast the search
How fruitless the attempts
To resolve internal strife
Through external measures.
Love Everlasting
No more
A heartbeat away

  1. You capture the samsara wheel of the struggle for those whom seek outside themselves for such Love and are never fulfilled only to know that when we come into our heart truly can we ever then know the infiniteness of Love within and the seeking outwardly ceases so that from within out. Beautifully written. Thank you for sharing this beautiful prose. I honour you ~Lady Nenari, Princess of the Sea, Lady of Glencoe, Highlands Scotland <3 <3 <3 <3
