midnight deep

alone is my soul
in the pain of this wilderness.
how did i get here;
to this dark place of seclusion?

fear, loneliness, and anguish
are the foxes of my night.
marring truth while shredding life,
barging in
to faithfully greet my morning.
maliciously they conquer
the allegiance within.

i once lay peacefully
under the shade of your tree.
delight was ours
lovesick affections spilled forth.

the days are fierce.
silent cold relentlessly whips
during this bitter, stripping winter.
deep cries out to deep
where has my lover gone?
have you seen the one
my heart loves?

shadows so black
tears of sorrow rush forth.
far off the faintest voice,
a soft whispering bid;
Arise and Come.
until the day breaks
and the shadows flee;
i will go.

reaching through
the midnight deep
desperation longs to touch
the hope of dawn.

midnight deep
