Journey

My beloved she waits for me

Amidst a thund’rous roaring sea

Ode to turmoil’s kindly soul

Whose navy waves do crest and roll

 

To see mine glory I do strive

In greener pastures I can thrive

Two strands are woven hand in hand

Trav’ling toward this distant land

 

Gold horns are calling out their cry

A desperate plea to Him on high

But I weighed down by gravity

Am marred by hopeless reality

 

Oh spare me, spare me from your love

The raven’s evil eats the dove

Consumed by darkness closing in

Do stay with me through thick and thin

 

The winds are wailing sorrow songs

To sweet birds hymns for which she longs

Oh broken branches falling fast

Moving this speed my life won’t last

 

Do slow me down and hold me tight

Free me from worldly terror’s fright

Unlock my cage and let me fly

Keep me close don’t let me die

 

Alas these miles wear me away

Dangerous wires spark and fray

Pulses jump from block to block

Hanging lonely beneath the stock

 

Oh prisoners barred by iron chains

Washed away by stormy rains

My trunk its bark is whittled down

No longer bears a golden crown

 

Her sirens lust for stony shores

A shipwrecked boat without its moors

I drift past Eden she floats on

Sailing outward toward the dawn

 

Will sunrise bring me happiness

Or will night’s ignorance be bliss

I truly wish for clearer sight

Oh clarity’s romantic plight

 

Don’t strike me down I will not fall

The clock ticks on from towers tall

My journeys pass through endless time

These tort’rous mountains I do climb

 

Upon my goal I set my sights

Erase this sin turn on your lights

You draw me near from places far

You guide me like the northern star

 

My moral compass magnet’s stuck

Can’t navigate through psychic’s luck

The fog descends on forests’ mist

Gently tapping on my right wrist

 

Drumming on my heart runs wild

Breaking bonds of ghosts beguiled

I watch my blood as it drips out

Constricted breath I scream and shout

 

Choked by warmth’s kind paradox

The rabbit’s tail chased by the fox

I yearn deception’s fateful end

Blackholes unplugged I hope to mend

 

A helpmate meets my true desire

Snowy nights lit up by fire

Demand the pleasure’s worth the pain

A forward loss is stagnant gain

 

Rulers measured by finite terms

Their dead ravaged by sand and worms

A casket’s door shuts out all hope

Does nature’s cycle mourn its trope

 

Laughing deeply from reason’s grave

Emotions burn new paths they pave

My passion’s knife it wields with skill

Pierces my flesh with silent shrill

 

She calls my name breaking my walls

Springing seasons turn to falls

Weather withers my weak restraint

Vision blurred in blacked-out faint

 

Pendulums swing from side to side

By my instinct I must abide

Intuition that I can’t trust

Love’s been scattered, crumbled to dust

 

Shall I pursue what I can’t win

Stacking doubts in one neat bin

Ignore the callings unsoundly built

Mem’ries tossed in a patchwork quilt

 

Thus I resolve I must embrace

I cannot know where is my place

Pitstops break up the treach’rous way

Trav’ling by night don’t rest by day

 

A means without an end is naught

No dream unearthed that can be sought

Blind faith to no one does persuade

Faulty foundations had been laid

 

My beloved she waits no more

An infinite cavern she has bore

I found her flaws and faults I see

Alas the blame it lies in me
