Can I manage

To be still enough

To discover Life’s expressions

And then express its revelations?

No.

Not until all my efforts are

Given back to Life itself.

I have been on a cleanse

For some time now.

I empty myself

Of what should be

And selectively consume

What is

In case you’re wondering,

I feel pretty healthy.

 

When she went away,

She left me one thing:

She said,

“Love is unbounded and abundant.

It is your only inheritance.”

Since then,

I have been burning through it

Like there is no tomorrow.

I relax the muscles

Of the mind;

Rest the desires

Of the heart;

And stretch the limbs

Of infinite love

To wake up

In the company

Of your divinity.

Nothing in this whole universe

Moves faster than

The speed of Love.

So, slow down.

Breathe.

Rest.

Love has already won.

I am suspended

Over an abyss

Of the great unknown

Hanging on

To a string of thought

Made up of familiarities.

My arms grow weary.

Letting go seems risky,

But holding on is painf-

Wait…

Where am I?
