For all that it is

For all that it is not-

Yes, soul longs for this and more and more and more

 

I have raged to know the diamond core

I have been intemperate in this

I have sought the name of the wind

And all the traditions of water

 

And it was not enough

No, never enough

At best a partial appeasement

Some approximation of the state for which I yearned

Breathless and breathless but ultimately knowing

That the bonds of this love can be cruel

 

Who then will console me in darkness?

Who will offer a healing balm?
