THE KNOWING OF LOVE. (Part 5/7)

DAY 5: The knowing of self loveMy love for youmust stand apartand look inwardin quiet contemplationfor a sacred self.It is an arduous journeythat leads meto a wilderness of my soul,where my demons and angelssit and wait for my return.Heremy love for youmust wait,for I must stand aloneand face this haunting landscapeof my own doing……a maze of regrets,lost loves and dreams,fear of living,arrogance of prideall swirled in a cloud of grey,swimming togetherwith my great joys.I seemy love for youin the murky mix,disappearing beneaththe thick, stagnant muck,resurfacing again,spluttering and chokingon the bitter scum;but I know that I cannot stopfor fear of drowning myself,and yet you still acknowledge mefrom afar.“Don’t panic, don’t panic”I hear myself cry out.With fear scratchingfrom withinI carry myselfthrough this swampto finally touch solid ground,and into its rocky surfaceI plant a cracked seedfrom my weary heart.My tearsreleased from my tightened gripfall upon the thirsty seedand it sprouts fortha golden leafpushingthrough the hardened crustthat I crafted with my own thoughts.The golden leaf encases mein its lightand carries me abovethe swirling waters of self doubtand returns meto myself,who I accept with open arms.My love for youis myself.
