I thought I knew what love was 

until it hit me in the face
with a passion so strong I didn’t recognize what it was
my eyes were covered in mud
they were washed seven times in seven ways
in seven times in seven months I could see
love found me so inconspicuously
it took over slowly and surely
going deep in my soul 
starting a fire unquenchable
burning up the past
incinerating the lies
that bound me to earth
and kept me in linear time

when I open the door

when I lay at your feet
gentleness rushes forth
tender love looks at me
I can hear you speak
when I listen I learn
when I wait I grow
when I move you’re there
when I’m still you carry me 

every day I lose a little more

my mind goes to places I’ve never been before
dreams so real, so fantastic, so free
to wake is grief and to pray is to dream
sweating in my sleep
speaking sacred words
the spoken is done
action set in motion
waves of becoming flooding over me
I can breathe underwater
like the fishes in the sea
