my albatross

yesterday…

twisting,
winding through
corners of cold stone
edges of sharp dark

finding
lost
alone
again

I am the black
behind the mirror
in the cave
of secret walls

when everything else
is gone
and I know
nothing

do not live
where loss dims sky
and obliterates light

sensing shadows
i seek its source

embellished prisms
reflecting
mere fragments
of forgotten dreams
I mistakenly step on

shards of hope
stick
to my bleeding feet

i tire
of the pain
as i drown in blame

open your eyes

the voice
which teaches
is silent

butterfly

the one
that dances

for what you have
… what you had
… what you have discovered
you are

i grasp the key
to your enlightened heart

and wonder
how I can imagine
all is lost

and not believe

when you are here

my albatross
