PARTED SEA


PARTED SEA

IN THE SPACE OF THE SWEET

SMELL IN MY NOSE

OF THE FRAGRANCE

AND THE DANCING LIGHT

OF MY OUTER

CANDLE TO MY INNER

CANDLE

THE FLAMES

PULSE IN AND OUT

LIKE LITTLE FIREY

PIXIES

CLOSING MY EYES

TO THE MUSIC

THE SENSUAL

THOUGHTS ARISE

FROM MY HEART

TO REACH OUT TO YOU

I SEE THE SHINE

IN THE DARKNESS

MOVING TOWARDS ME

AND THE DANCE

IS PRESENT

I SMILE

AND I CRY

A TEAR

FOR THE MOMENT

WITH LOVE

IS LIKE THE

PASSING OF DAY

TO NIGHT

AND NIGHT TO DAY

THE FLUTE IN MY EARS

PASSES ME BY

FOR NOW

AND THE DANCING

GODDESSES

CIRCLE ME

IN THRICE ACROSS

THE PARTED SEAS

THAT FLOW

AND EBB

THE TIME I FIND

THE JEWEL

WITHIN MYSELF

AND RELEASE

IT OUTWARD

TO THE WORLD

IN JOY AND PEACE

I RESIDE

WITHIN THE SENSUAL

SPACES

KEEPING MY PROMISE

THAT IS LOST

WITHIN AND WITHOUT

FROM MY LEFT

AND MY RIGHT

THE WAVES FLOWS

OUT LIKE RED GLOWS

TO THE EDGES

AND IN THE CENTER

THE PEARL

OF MY DESIRE

BECKONS ME

TO TRAVEL TO HER

AND I HAVE

TO REMAIN HERE

YET I

SEE THAT I CAN

AND WOULD

AND SHE

THEN WALKS IN THE

SWEET DANCE

MOVING ONE

LEG TO THE RIGHT

AND TURNS

THEN ONE LEG

TO THE LEFT

AND TURNS

THEN RUNS

ON ONE SIDE

SHE STRIKES

AND DOWN THAT ONE

FALLS

TO THE OTHER

SHE OFFERS THE

DRINK

AND SHE SOARS

UP ABOVE HER HEAD

AND IN THAT MOMENT

I GAIN THE

CLOSENESS

OF WHICH IS WHICH

AND WHERE I

NOW AM CONSUMED

FROM THE TREE ABOVE

TO THE BRANCHES

HERE BELOW

AND THE SNAKE

THAT NOW IS AWAY

MY VISIONED EYE

OPENS AND

I SOAR IN THE SKY

WITH THE CLOUDS

SPARKLING

TO THE BEAT

OF THE DRUMS

AND THE STRINGS

INTO THE TWILIGHT

WHERE I REST

HOPING THAT

THE KISS

THAT IS COMING

WILL HOLD ME

OVER

FOR ALL ETERNITY

FOR LOVE

HAS REACHED IN

AND GRABBED HOLD

ON A HIGHER

PLANE

TO THE

NOW HERE

AND WHERE

I WISH I COULD BE

I BREAK THE HOLD

FOR A MOMENT

IN MY PRESENT

STATE

A DRUNKEN

FOOL IN LOVE

FOR THE FINGERS RUN

DOWN MY ARM

TO MY BACK

AND THEN MY

LEGS

AND BACKUP

I REST MY HEAD

UPON THE WATERS

FLOWING DOWN

LIKE A SHOWER

IT DRIPS DOWN MY BACK

AS I REST THERE

IN MY DREAMSTATE

OF A MOMENT

WHERE

WATER MET THE AIR

AND AIR MET

THE FIRE INSIDE

GROUNDED

BACK INTO THE

EARTH

BY THE VOID

TRAVELS

OF SPACE AND TIME

TO …

TOUCH

AND FEEL THE CARESSES

OF WHERE

ONLY MY MIND

CAN GO

FROM THE

BODY OF MY EDGES

THE ULTIMATE

BLISS

IS REACHED

NOT IN THE

LIVING

LEVELS

OF INNOCENCE

BUT IN THE

EXPERIENCES

OF MY PAST

INTO MY PRESENT

AND

SEEKING

OUR FUTURE

THE STILLNESS

OF THE GREEN LEAVES

AND THE BLUES

TURNING INTO PURPLES

THE COLOURS OF LOVE

TO FEEL YOU

NEXT TO ME

RESTING THERE

IN THE NOTHINGNESS

OF OUR ONENESS

SO BECKONS

THE ACHE

OF MY FLOWER

WHERE THE SNAKE

FINDS ME

AND

TRAVELS UPWARD

TIL

THERE IS NO

OTHER

THE TINGLING

AND RINGING

AND EVER SO

GENTLE RHYTHMS

OF

BACK AND FORTH

UP AND DOWN

MOVING

YOUR HANDS

IN MY HANDS

OUR HAIR

ENTWINED

SO DIVINE

THEN THE PETALS

FALL DOWN

LIKE SNOW IN THE

WINTER

HITTING THE WATER

AND TRAVELING

DOWN THE RIVER

OUT TO THE BAY

INTO

THE OCEAN

WHERE I PLUNGED

DEEP WITHIN

FROM THE ARROW

SHOT MY WAY

DIDN'T MISS

TO LAYING UNDERNEATH

AS THE DANCE

IS ABOVE ME

FOR I AM

WHO I AM

AND YOU ARE

WHO YOU ARE

AND

WE ARE WHO WE ARE

AND WILL

ALWAYS BE

FOR YOU CAN NOT HOLD

ONTO LOVE

IN THE PASSION STARES

AND KEEP

THE

JEWEL WITHIN

IT COMES AND GOES

LIKE THE FLICKERING

FIRE LIGHT

BY

MY CANDLE

STEADED BY

THE MAGNETIC

ATTRACTIONS

OF THEN

TO NOW

LIKE THE VINE

GROWING

UP INSTEAD OF DOWN

WILL I WALK

THIS PATH

FOR

LOVE

HAS

HARSHLY

AWAKENED IN ME

A FIRE

THAT WILL NEVER

GO OUT

AS LONG

AS THIS RIVER

FLOWS

THE ANIMA

OF LIFE

FOR I REST HERE

WITHIN THESE

WALLS

IN

THE ETERNAL

SLEEP

WAITING

FOR

THE KISS

TO BRING ME

BACK AROUND.
