Tumbling out of Heaven
Reaching into the darkness,
Through the fragile unknown spaces,
Between seraphim and cherubim,
Locking eyes with deity,
And tumbling out of heaven.
In reaching I’ve been revived.
In wanting I’ve been repelled.
In speaking I’ve been silenced.
This is what it feels like to speak to the wind.
This is what it tastes like to kiss the rain.
This is what it sounds like to be cut off.
This path is killing me with its blood stained pages.
This path is stunning with its desperate beauty.
Living at the edge of the world,
I’ll take my chances, and live some more.
Until I see the breath of silver;
That smoldering old soul,
I’ll keep my heart open.
I found Truth in the morning clouds.
She asked me for a ride.
