Lumiscent Tears [ March 20th 2008 ]

Dark stillness envelopes me
Bushland crying out
The stars are clear, vivid,
Like my distant memory.
Train tracks crunch and whirl,
As we speed on by,
Tops of trees disturbed
By unatural power lines.
We pick up speed on the never ending journey of life
As time ticks forward
Increasing speed by seconds, by minutes, by hours, by days,
Flashing by in a distant blur of reality.
You are all I see.
I stare out at open skies
Darkness closing its cold rigidness around me
Sucking the air from me
As a tear quietly, gently, rolls down my cheek.
Bush thickness clears to less subtle open plains as we near the lights
of a town.
Lights bring hope.
But these remind me of the distance which envelopes me and seperates me
from you.
The whirring intensifies as we exit into open air once again, my tears
are quiet, recumbent.
I think back and I think ahead.
I imagine being wrapped in your arms, your life, your dreams, hopes, and
I imagine your face and run my fingers over every line,
memorising the beauty and love held within.
I see an horizon intensified by pollutant light, scarring the face of
the otherwise beautiful contemplation,
that ocean is not so far, that your are not so far.
And the tears flow freely as I contemplate what freedom simply your love
may bring me.
I will wait.
For that single moment, that single smile, breath and tear,
which will envelope me as you wrap me in your world, your life, your
arms and your love.
And in that moment I will be home.
Stars now shine their luminescent beauty upon my face,
Which shimmers with tears,
As I wish my heart to yours
And hold your face so close to my mind.
Love, will conquer this pain.
For the what I feel for you
Although once denied
Is noticed
Is cherished
Is needed
For without it perhaps these tears are shed with no hope,
But now,
There is hope.
I know there is hope.
