Sacred Flame

You know who I am.

Forgetting is inculcated into the game.

I am wrought from the fabric of the very first dawn.

We have endlessly died, together, and been reborn.

I am that I am, despite, and in spite of, my name.

I am that which stirs, when you face dread or defeat

it is my presence you feel, urging you to keep on:

I am what you are searching for – I am your Song -

You are my Music – we were designed as One,

we could not help, but Meet.

Pay the hag Time no heed, and she turns away her face

she has no dominion over us, We, exist on every other plane..

we simply pass through here, temporarily lost in her race,

then Desire draws us deeply together, using the hag’s name

…. and again

I know all of who you are, you are more than my fuel, I am more than your fire:

Creation relies on us withstanding Ignorance’s ire,

and not Forgetting…

only You and I can turn this to Shame,

not by dishonesty, not by deceit, but by Self Denial:

by simply not speaking the other’s name.

Artist's Description

I started this with the idea of each line being a sentence of its own, but one that also blends with the others to make a story…
then it struck me that this is what we are: we are designed to be whole and able to stand on our own, but also to blend into Creation’s story..
so towards the end it didn’t matter that not each line stands alone after all, because those that are paired have found their balance, their partners..
heh heh
