Amen

by Teatart

‘Tis my heart that laughs
And sings the psalms of my disposition
For once I was lonely
Lost in my private maze of emotion
Consciously floating day from endless day
Seeking nought by cared devotion
I wallowed in my isolation
And sipped the goblet of bitterness
Seeing solely the reflection of sallowness
And its inverse of sorrow

‘Twas not my heart
A bed of roses
Sprinkled with thorns of poison
And decorated with the blood
Of those who dared to sit on its thorny throne?
Was it he who felt as king or jester
Daring to possess that which would be not possessed?
And yet it was you
Who washed away my fear
And stripped me of my thorny crown

I am naked and bare to your eyes
Uninhibited by your love
My heart to you eternal shall be
And to another I shan’t pray
For you have laid me open
Desperate for your caressing touch
Wanting nought but yourself –
Intertwined in you is my world,
My breath of life
AMEN.
