This wall between the worlds… yours and mine
Invisible. Yet rock-solid
I tried to scale it, yet again, to peep into the other world..
Perhaps you’ll be waiting for me there…just across?
With that devilish smirk on your face…
Which makes me go weak in my knees… Always!
I climbed and climbed… it was sky high
And the scratches and cuts my being endured
Just to see you again…and those smiling eyes
What would I not give to see myself reflected in them?
For once, my distracted mind caused my hands to lose their grip
I was falling…falling. I screamed, terrified
I cried out your name, the sweetest sound I held sacred
Futile it was, as I lay in a heap, my heart injured as my spirit bled.
Who knows how long I had lain there?
For half-alive I merely was…and the world so silent, watching
Waiting in despair for the moment to arrive
When my life-breath would desert me
When, at last, I could be set free!
The music seemed so strange at first
And lights dazzled my bleary sight
Footsteps, so gentle, yet so clear
Stopped near me as if to say
“And here I am, I always was… perhaps you had no eyes to see,
I live inside you, precious one, and in your pain you’ll find me.”
A sigh escaped my swollen lip, and I could not help but ask…
“Why, my Lord, must I always hurt?
Why won’t you show me you care!”
A smile divine now played His lips
His face aglow as he whispered,
“Brave are you, for you can dare
To bare your soul and embrace your wound
In moments such you’ll feel me close
And hark my call, for I’ll be near
Like the butterfly that morphs, in a magic so rare
You’ll know that your pain has morphed to prayer.”
